Podcast: Plans for five-story mixed-use downtown development move forward

Friday, July 8

Construction slated to begin later this summer

 

Yet another downtown construction project is ready to get underway after the City's Design Review Board voted 3-0 to approve plans for a five-story mixed-use development for the corner of W Main Street and Daniel Morgan Avenue. The building will bring 30 new apartment units as well as 3,000 square feet of ground floor retail space to the prominent downtown corner. A development agreement for the building was previously approved by City Council in February, providing the city-owned property at no cost to local developer Royce Camp, after which the Design Review Board raised concerns about some aspects of the building's design at their meeting in March.

 

Working together, the City Staff and the developer were able to address issues raised by the DRB, clearing the way for this week's approval. Today on the podcast, we're taking a deeper look at the development, the process of approving this important project, as well as what it could mean for the future of downtown's western end.
