TowerDistrict has hit on this project several times... here's the current
rundown from the draft EIR that was just finished up.
This a mixed use development is called Township 9 and would be located
just to the north of Richards Blvd. on 65 acres. This proposal has two
development scenarios. Scenario A would have approximately 2,981 housing
units and 146,194sf of neighborhood retail and restaurants. Scenario B would
develop 839,628sf of office use (instead of residential) on the proposed lots
facing Richards Blvd. and reduce the total number of housing units to 2,350
.Plan B would also include 146,194 of neighborhood retail and restaurants
justlike plan A.
Township 9 would have apartments, condos, townhomes, and live/work units
and the building height for the site would range from 2 to 15 stories with a
maximum height of 180 feet for the residential unites and 235 feet for the
office. There would be five or six structures that would be 15 stories and
would be located along the Riverside Parkway. When looking at the rendering
above, you can tell which structures would be 15 stories by the shadows
they cast (the shadows are going the wrong way, being that the sun rises
and sets to the south).
The project would also include space for a transit station and tracks
forfuture Light Rail construction.
