The real estate developer was asked to update its design for the project after meeting with the DRC in September.

Brock Hudgins Architects, the firm leading the building’s design, incorporated previous feedback from the DRC and returned with a “sophisticated modernist building that merges the energy of Midtown’s commercial core with the distinct character of the residential neighborhood,” according to a review of the application posted to the Midtown Alliance website yesterday.

The updated design features a covered ground floor area with casual seating and an outdoor fireplace.

“This semi-private space facilitates an admirable transition between the public sidewalk and the private residential lobby and provides a unique and flexible indoor/outdoor amenity space,” the DRC noted.

There are, however, two remaining “issues” the DRC is requesting Toll Brothers revisit, including preventing “through traffic in the narrow alley at the rear of the building” and “the quality and fabrication of required screening for the rear utilities and parking deck lighting.”
