As previously discussed on Gables Insider, the moratorium on development projects that are requesting Mediterranean Bonuses was passed by the Commission in July and is in effect until at least the next Commission meeting on Tuesday, August 24th. The moratorium was bypassed for the consideration of the Ponce Park Towers project by the Planning and Zoning Board last week.
Now, the Alexan Crafts project, the first project up for consideration in the recently upzoned Crafts Section will be considered at the Board of Architects this morning at 9:00AM.
The project has numerous requests that will be considered by the Board, one of them being the Mediterranean Bonuses.
Alexan Crafts is a planned mixed-use project on the west side of Salzedo Street between Catalonia Avenue and Malaga Avenue. It is the first planned project in the newly upzoned Crafts Section and counts on the use of 13 single family residential lots. The proposed project will be “a 6 to 7 story mixed use building containing a total of 22 live work units at the ground level and 263 multifamily residential units on the upper levels.” Click here to view the documentation presented on this project.
The project was discussed at the May Development Review Committee.
