Here's a link to the just-released iQuilt Plan in the form of a "Pocket Guide": http://iq2.squarespa...0Jan%202012.pdf
The full 120-page Overview is supposed to be online on January 24.
There has been a lot of news coverage of the iQuilt recently:
The Plan is also relevant to other Urban Planet discussions on downtown Hartford, including proposed renovations of the XL Center, and the State of Connecticut possibly relocating many of its office into downtown commercial space, and freeing up its holdings, especially around Bushnell Park, for housing.
Two new downtown housing projects are in the works. Both will be aimed at students and have internal parking structures. They are also in great locations and within walking distance to Dickson and the University.
Project Columbia will be located where the University Baptist Church's SAC building is currently located on the NW corner of Watson and Campbell. This building will have a 6 level parking structure surrounded by 137 unit housing complex. This is what I can tell from the plans (see link below). The 1-4 bedroom units will have close to 500 bedrooms total. (This complex may be closer to 200 units according to the Fayetteville Flyer). I do know that UBC has been looking to sell the SAC building and may have it under contract currently.
Project Canada will be located on the lot to the west of UBC on the corner of West and Lafayette. I believe there are a couple of older houses and a small apartment building currently there as well as a parking lot. This building will also an interior parking structure but will be larger with 183 proposed units
I'm having trouble posting links so here is the url from the City of Fayetteville Parks and Rec Agenda: http://www.fayettevi...ard-nov-7-2011/
Here is additional info from the Fayetteville Flyer: http://www.fayettevi...n-fayetteville/
I'd love to see this happen but I'll believe it when I see it.
