Broad & Washington Project

Project Status: Under Review

The initial development application and proposal was first submitted in 2015. The 6th version of the initial proposal was submitted in March 2018 and approved by City Council on April 9, 2018. Review the initial development application and subsequent submissions on the Broad and Washington Project Archive page.

A new development proposal was submitted on November 20, 2019. The initial  development proposal did not include developing the city owned public parking lot on Park Place, which is included in the 2019 application. Documents and materials related to the 2019 development proposal are listed on this page below "2019 Application Materials."

The new application requires the following land use actions by City Council following a recommendation by Planning Commission:
  1. Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map Amendment: to amend the city owned parking lot on Park Place from Business to Mixed-Use designation;
  2. Special Exception: to allow residential development within a mixed use development; and
  3. Special Exception: to allow a height bonus above the 75' maximum height allowed in B-2.

  • Up to five (5) levels of residential multi-family rental apartments (339 units) above ground floor retail
  • Whole Foods Market at the corner of Broad and Washington Streets; and,
