On November 12, 2019, by a vote of 3-1, the Planning Commission approved the Site Plan and Architectural Review (SPAR) for construction of a new mixed-use building, and Site Development Planning Application (SDPA) for tree removal.
Site Plan and Architectural Review (SPAR) to demolish the existing building (Aaron Brothers and office space at 300 S. Ellsworth Ave.) and construct a 17,187 square-foot three-story mixed-use building with one basement level. The proposed uses include 3,380 square feet of retail on the ground floor, and a total of 19,608 square feet of office on the basement, second, and third floors. A private rooftop terrace is also proposed. The applicant does not propose to provide parking on-site and has requested to pay Central Parking and Improvement District (CPID) parking in-lieu fees.
