It’s been a couple of years since the old earthquake-damaged Coleman building was torn down on the southwest corner of 23rd & Union. Back in the summer we got our first glimpse of what was to come: a six story, 91 unit apartment building with ground floor retail.
It’s a big building: 65 feet tall and underground parking for 95 cars. In fact, the zoning only allows 40 foot height on that spot, so the developer has to get council approval for a rezone.
So a couple of questions:
- Is the design too big for the neighborhood, or is it worth it to help calm some of the crime issues at that intersection?
- Does anyone know when the council is supposed to take up the rezone?
- Did anyone make it to the planning meeting to see how the building will look?
