The last time we wrote about the 12th and Allison development, it was last summer and the development team was meeting with residents and other stakeholders to gather input on their proposal. Based on some push back from the immediate community, the original proposal that was submitted to the City in August 2016 was updated to reduce the number of units from 150 to 82 and a greater amount of green space will be preserved. The updated Planned Unit Development (PUD) was resubmitted in February 2017, you can see it here. We recently learned from an Urban Turf article that the Zoning Commission could approve the development in the next month. From the article:
In the final design, the applicant and architect KTGY Group amended the materiality and design of the side facade of the end units facing streets and added and revised architectural details to enhance the compatibility of the new houses with the existing rowhouses in the neighborhood. Wrap-around porches will remain on some of the new homes based on recommendations from the Office of Planning, despite that not being a prevalent style in the neighborhood.
The development is bound by 12th, Allison, Sargent, 13th, and Varnum Streets NE. We will keep our eyes on this development and let you know when we learn anything new.
