Buckingham project at 62nd & College Withdrawn

The proposed mixed use project North of 62nd Street between College and Carrollton Avenues has formally been withdrawn. See the letter below.

Letter of Withdrawal-c

The project had included about 6000sf of office/retail, about 160 apartment units, and two stories of structured parking, with a total height of 70 feet it its last iteration.

The project had been presented twice at the BRVA Land Use and Development Committee meetings (October and November). Though the second iteration was significantly modified according to feedback from the LUD Committee, it still had a long way to go to win a position of support. The main obstacles were the Committee’s request to leave the existing alley in-tact in its entirety, as well as lowering the height and creating more of a street scape along the Carrollton Ave side of the project.
