UPDATE October 21, 2016 – It appears Parkwood Development LLC has stepped aside and a new developer, LMC has taken over the 321 Warren Street construction. A new design but the same development rights that the Planning Board approved when it created another sub-divided area within the Powerhouse Arts District Redevelopment Plan.
They are on schedule to submit their site plan amendment application on October 21st to be heard during the November 15th planning board meeting.
In summary the application changes only the look of the building. The number of stories are unchanged at 15 residential stories over ground floor retail, parking, and residential and Arts space lobbies. The total number of residential units is unchanged at 180. Parking count is still 18. The ground floor arts lobby is expanded and the second floor is still entirely dedicated to Arts use including the 18’ clear height black box theater.
The streetscape is improved by accentuating the Arts and residential lobbies and entrances, and separating them as two distinct elements. The double height of glass at the ground and second floors will reveal the activity behind in the arts and retail spaces, which will enliven the streetscape.
The company, LMC, is very excited about this development, they’ve begun site work for environmental remediation already, and anticipate breaking ground for vertical construction during the second quarter of 2017.
