The project aims to build owner-occupied one-bedroom condos about a block off of Vista Ave. on Robert St., right behind the Betty the Washer Woman sign site.

The project would require a rezoning which the developer says would “accommodate the density of the development and provide for much-needed housing in the area through the inclusion of owner-occupied condominium units,” Ben Semple with Rodney Evans + Partners wrote in an application letter. “Overall, properties within the immediate vicinity contain multi-family, single-family, and commercial properties, which this development would enhance through the inclusion of an additional housing type.”

The units would range from 500-800 square feet, and most would include private balconies or rooftop patios. The project would rise up four stories, or about 45 feet off the ground.

The development will include parking for 32 cars. It will use a car lift system to give each of the condos access to two spaces, plus additional guest spaces.

“This far exceeds the required parking for the development of 18 parking stalls,” Semple wrote.

The project will require rezoning, a conditional use permit, and an exemption related to setbacks. A hearing has not yet been set.
