The agenda for next week’s planning board meeting is up… we’ve got some familiar projects coming up to bat, as well as one major modification.
Under Site Plan Approval & Public Hearing
- 24 Maple Avenue | 8 FLOORS (DO-3)
- 14 Lecount Place | 27 x 2 FLOORS (DO-2)
- 115 Cedar Street | 24 FLOORS (LI-hotel)
Under Discussion Items
- 316 Huguenot Street | 14 FLOORS (DO-2)
- 8 Westchester Place | 7 FLOORS (DO-2)
- 339 Huguenot Street | 28 FLOORS (DO-2)
339 Huguenot is the one to watch. If anyone remembers, this property was already included in a dual 14-story tower project which would sit on two city owned parking lots. It seems like that is no longer the case. In the agenda, it states this new project sits on Block 437, lots 1 & 3… which would give it the footprint below.
However, that lot seems pretty tiny for a 28 story tower… in the last iteration of the 327 / 339 Huguenot project, we saw two 14-story towers along with 33 Centre Avenue being developed as a parking garage. Perhaps this new tower includes a parking setup similar to 587 Main / 360 Huguenot. That would eliminate the need for an external garage. I would bet that the footprint for the whole project would also include 33 Centre for those reasons. But, that’s pure speculation. If this goes through, we will have two 28 story towers within the same area.
We’ll just have to see!
