After a previous plan for hotel and residential development was defeated at the ballot box, has returned with plans for condo and retail development.
The ‘West Village’ development will feature a 6,000-square-foot retail center, a 15,600-square-foot park and 180 condominiums with 27 reserved for low income tenants. The 180 condos will be a mix of 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms spread out among 15 3 story buildings.
The plans for West Village comply with existing planning regulations, unlike the previous hotel project, and therefore cannot be challenged through a vote.
The developer pointed out the current plan is denser than the hotel project and will likely increase traffic, as if chiding the community for their vote last fall. He then added this lovely tidbit.
“I’m not going to kid you. It’s going to look horrible at first,” the developer said, referring to the significant amount of grading required.
