A six-story mixed-use building is proposed on .78 acres along Main Street west of Guilford Road.
The 104,000-square-foot building, known as L’Etoile, is planned to have 4,500-square feet of retail on the first floor with 60 apartments on the top five floors. An 87-space parking deck is also proposed.
“I think this continues the effort to provide a variety of living opportunities for our residents in a walkable urban environment that will reinforce the vision of a truly diverse and inviting city,” said Daniel Moriarity, principal at Carmel-based Studio M Architecture and Planning, which is designing the project.
L’Etoile is proposed to have a range of living options from studio to two-bedroom units, reserved tenant parking with solar collector shading and electric car charging stations, and 16 onsite individual office spaces for tenant use in a “live-work” situation, Moriarity said.
“The exterior design is intended to generate an active and inviting streetscape that allows close interaction between the first floor amenity spaces and the street side plaza that takes advantage of the generous setback from the street,” Moriarity said. “A traditional masonry skin will frame a curtainwall façade that allows the units to have the maximum amount of window wall available for the living areas.”
The vacant site was previously home to a two-story, 8,100-square-foot office building that has been demolished.
