Additional details were shared to the Midtown Development Review Committee last night, August 10th, when representatives of Property Markets Group returned to present to the committee for the second straight month. As requested by the MDRC, PMG shared additional details about retail-specific parking, retail storefront elevations, parking screening, loading zones and bicycle storage access. These details included new elevation drawings, street-level design details, and access diagrams.
The elevation drawings in particular demonstrate how access to the parking garage would function and details of the parking screening materials. The parking garage will be accessed by a single driveway on Sixth Street, and will be screened mostly by alternating stucco and precast concrete panels and a fritted glazing (speckled, slightly porous glass) section on the northwest corner of the parking decks. The residential decks will consist of stucco panels, glazed walls and terraces with glass railing.
Site plans for the parking decks were also shared, clarifying the parking split between uses. The 455 structured parking spaces will be split between 4 parking decks, starting with 118 retail and visitor parking on the lowest deck, then one deck of 88 office and visitor parking, and two decks of with approximately 124 spaces reserved for residents.
