    Interesting how that rendering for 2222 SW Barton doesn’t show the actual grade of the parcel(s) it will encompass or the surrounding area.

      Sorry, I just went with that one for clarity’s sake (it was the cover image) but page 22 in the packet does …

        Thanks TR.  This project looks amazing.  They really listened to the community feedback about types of units, where to locate services, and what the building will look like perched on this parcel.

      The presentation made it clear that the architect and developer care about this building. There was considerable attention to the community feedback from the last meeting.  My take: The massing of three sections of the building is visually interesting. The overall footprint of the building as been pulled back from the street and there will be extended landscaping on the south/Barton Street side. The Design Review Board placed five Conditional Approval items to move it forward, and, if I recall correctly, they are: three changes to the exterior facade design and materials to elevate the design of the Barton Place facing side, confirmation that the final landscaping design meets Cpted (crime prevention) standards and a more detailed review for adequate exterior safety lighting.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
