The project proposes the demolition of one 2,442 square-foot restaurant, the existing private school, 2,200 square feet of office space, and the surface parking lot; and the construction, use, and maintenance of a 70,310 square-foot, mixed-use development (includes existing and new floor area). The mixed-used development is comprised of two existing restaurants and a new 3,810 square-foot hotel restaurant having 2,514 square-feet of Service Floor area, a new Apartment Hotel with four dwelling units and 78 guest rooms, 2,935 square feet of ground floor retail space including a market with 170 square feet of Service Floor area, a 1,735 square-foot spa, and 2,027 square feet of office use. The project will construct three (3) new three-story mixed-use buildings, each with a maximum of 30 feet in height, and one (1) new two-story building, approximately 25 feet in height; all new structures are connected by pedestrian bridges. The project provides a total of 175 parking spaces, at grade and within three subterranean levels and will provide an on-street loading area on Broadway, limiting the use of the space for loading during the hours of 7:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Monday through Friday and 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. on Saturday; a loading zone is also provided onsite.
