The Gensler-designed plans still call for a 90 foot-tall building with 66 apartments atop 6,900 square feet of ground-floor retail. The unit mix will include 9 one-bedrooms, 28 one plus-dens, 23 two-bedrooms and six, two plus-dens, including habitable units in the penthouse.

Six units will be set aside for inclusionary zoning, with five of the units for households earning up to 80 percent area median income (AMI) and the sixth for a household earning up to 50 percent AMI.

Although there will still be a two-level underground parking garage, there will be 56 vehicular parking spaces rather than 68, as well as 22 bicycle parking spots.

Some of the units will also have balconies with ornamental metal railings, and the materials will include multi-colored stone and brick in varying shades of red and grey, as well as red-tinted precast patterned stone along the upper levels. The overall appearance of the new design is somewhat lighter in color and more simple in materiality.

    I never thought anything could make me miss that tacky church, but this appallingly dull building just might.

    Nice! Love the red brick. Blends into the area more so than some of the other ultra modern glass atrocities that we seem to defer to these days.
