Design Advice Posting Notice [PDF, small]. It has a small image. It kind of looks like the architect couldn't decide on a facade treatment, and thought "to hell with it; let's go for every idea I've ever had."

A Design Advice Request is a voluntary review process that allows the Commission to provide early feedback on a development proposal, prior to the required land use review. The applicant seeks Design Advice for a potential 15-story, mixed-use building in the Central City and South Auditorium Plan Districts. The proposed building at the northeast corner of SW 4th and Harrison, would include approximately 30,000 SF of retail (potential grocer) at the ground level and residential units, primarily for student housing, on the upper floors. Loading and parking garage access are currently proposed at the northwest corner of the building off of SW 4th Avenue. The garage would provide approximately 192 parking spaces in two underground levels for both proposed commercial and residential uses. A central exterior courtyard would be located at the 2nd level creating a u-shaped tower with the opening along SW 4th. Additional outdoor amenities are proposed atop the 15th floor along with a greenroof. Potential Modifications to building setbacks and loading development standards have been identified.
