Planned is a four story 42,000 square foot building to replace the UDF at 1st and High and the parking lot just to the south.
Elford Development has submitted plans to the Italian Village Review Board for a conceptual review for the project tonight, the 19th. No vote will be taken at this point.
The plans call for about half of the 42,000 square feet to used for office space. Net lease retail is slated for the ground floor. It’s likely to include a replacement for the UDF. The neighborhood frankly needs something like this. I don’t know about the classical music though. Maybe it will also survive.
The ground floor triple net retail will be on the southern end of the building. On the northern end will be two floors of restaurants facing the intersection of 1st and High.
There will be a small parking lot off of Pearl Street behind the building for 24 cars.
There are architectural renderings that look about like everything else that’s being built. Hopefully the Italian Village Commission will encourage Elford to spice the design up a bit.
