Church Street Plaza | 28-Story Office/Hotel [Phase 1 Under Construction]

Recommended Posts


The 2nd tower was approved today by planning board.

"The tower is not subject to Appearance Review Board jurisdiction, but it must clear the city’s Historic Preservation Board to gain permits."

Does anyone know why this is the case?

Because those 2 boards would present differing and even opposing perspectives. Because of the physical attachment to the historic and protected building (Bumby) that board takes the lead. Of course, it is actually City staff that will be driving the review, but they will do it using the HPB guidelines.

BB said the new design provides more reference to architecture from the past. Per GS, "The design is meant to evoke the shape of a classic 1920s-era office building from the side that faces the SunRail station and transform into a modern, almost futuristic design at the northern elevation. " Also of note, "Because it’s slated to receive a density bonus, Lincoln will be required to submit an enhanced landscaping plan, provide a public art component and conform to strict design criteria. "

What's the second tower - commercial or residential? Any details? The Growthspotter URL is a paywall.

Disable Javascript then refresh in chrome and you'll see the article. DVX also got approved.

Does this building require art covering the parking garage or is this one exempt?

I don't think phase 1 required any art because I think it did not need a density bonus

Just like majority of the buildings downtown, it kind of just depends on what angle you’re looking at the building from. These 2 elevations don’t look bad.

IMO, it'd be pretty hard to make the original design much uglier than it already was.

I'd rather Hunton Brady had designed phase 2 using design elements of phase 1.

This sounds messy and really crappy of the landlord.

 

 

Oy. Not good. I love Mary's. Haven't been in a bit but solid burger and of course fun trivia, drag bingo and shows. Had many great moments there. 

Something tells me one way or another they won't be in that space much longer if this story is the case.

It’s interesting to see Thomas Chatmon, among whose duties are to look out for the needs of downtown business folk, MIA so far. Then, of course, that’s exactly what I’d expect. One fine day we’ll figure out exactly what this man actually does.

Yeah haven't been in a long time but used to go every week for trivia. Too bad they just leased Tre Bambine space, that might have been perfect for them.

Sounds like the landlord realized they could basically force them out without a payment and are doing just that. It really sucks.

19 residence seems like such a weird number. I guess it's basically a farce and the likelihood if them being converted is like 100%.

So, as anticipated, Mary's is getting pushed out of Church Street.  Hopefully they do not just shutdown operations altogether and find another building to relocate (it's never that easy for small business owners).
