It is to transform an underutilized parking lot at the northwest corner of S. Maple Ave. and Annandale Rd. into a Mixed-Use Development and add to the downtown core. The Special Exception requested is for a residential use in a mixed-use district and for a height bonus of 10 feet. The project, in its current form, will include the following:

  • Up to 7 stories (85') of residential multifamily rental apartments (196 Units)
  • 191,300 SF of Residential Space, 11,112 SF of Amenity Space, and 11,930 SF of Commercial Space
  • Underground parking structure, containing 259 spaces
  • Proposed uses include Two Birds, which will provide an innovative ground floor commercial use. Additionally, Applicant is partnering with CRi to provide diverse housing opportunities for historically underserved populations


The project site consists of three parcels that will be consolidated as part of this development. The main project property (RPC 52-309-121) is located at the northwest intersection of S. Maple Avenue and W. Annandale Rd.
