Carr Companies and The Donohoe Companies shared plans for a mixed-use development that will replace the 44,700 square-foot retail structure that was previously home to Brooks Brothers and Saks Jandel. The proposed development would have two seven-story "shoulders" flanking an 18-story tower, delivering rental apartments above up to 15,000 square feet of retail. The Courtyard by Marriott hotel will remain and a 47 foot-wide woonerf, or a curbless pedestrian-friendly right-of-way, will run between the hotel and the new building. Between 45-57 of the apartments at the new development will be moderately-priced dwelling units (MPDUs).
