The developers of the new Chestnut Commons residential complex will present a significant re-design at the upcoming session of the Dontown Design Review Committee on Monday, June 12th.
Note: See Update under PROJECTS Progress.
Members of the JDA Planning & Zoning Committee were given a preview of the revisions by Waldorf Capital Management chairman Brian Poitras. He said cost issues with the original design have been addressed in the design.
While simplified, the new design retains a number of the features as positives in the original approval by the DDRC. Notably, the articulation, while modified, of the long Friendship St. facade. And the angled entry at the Chestnut/Friendship corner visible in the schematic above. A small detail, but an appealing nod to the similar entry on the Chestnut/Clifford entry to 95 Chestnut. (The newly renovated Russell & Irons Building where Waldorf Capital is well on its way to filling 59 new rental units with residents.)
Work is still ongoing on final revisions, so the schematic rendering above and posted on the Ongoing Projects page may not be exactly what gets presented to the DDRC. To see it, click HERE.
Public comment will be welcomed by the DDRC at the session which starts at 4:45 pm in the 1st-floor conference room at 444 Westminster St.
