1325-41 W. Belmont – Office Building Proposal and Zoning Change Request
After the 2 to 1 NO vote on the proposal, the Developers have reworked the Project in attempt to obtain neighborhood approval. At deadline date for the newsletter, 2 proposals are being considered. The major changes from the October meeting are as follows :
New Project #1 – the 4th floor is moved back 18ft from Belmont creating a 4th floor penthouse. The height of the Project at Belmont will be 44 ft. The Penthouse 4th floor back will remain about 60 ft. The developer indicated that the 4th floor would not be visible from the north side of Belmont street level. The rentable medical office space will be reduced from 60,170 to 56,947 sq. ft.
New Project #2 – the 4th floor is totally eliminated. The height is reduced to 44 ft. The parking spaces on level 2 are reduced from 57 to 32. Part of level #2 becomes office space. The rentable medical office space is reduced from 60,170 to 45,425 sq.ft.
The façade of the Project has been reworked to give the impression of 3 different buildings instead of 1 giant building.
This issue will be up for a vote. The immediate neighborhood will be flyered.
