According to the IBJ Property Lines blog:
The Department of Metropolitan Development’s division of planning on Thursday was set to hear Browning’s request for a variance to allow for an 85-foot tall building and a 35,000-square-foot grocery store earmarked for a Whole Foods. That request has been continued until July 11 while Browning makes changes to the design. Jamie Browning said the developer will reduce the height of the building to about 70 feet (35 feet is permitted) in addition to the floor space for the grocery. Browning said he didn’t know how much smaller the space might be but is confident the developer can still attract a national retailer. Under city zoning guidelines for the area, just 8,000 square feet is permitted for any single commercial use. Browning will also modify the design to make it look more residential and less contemporary. “We’re trying to be accommodative to what people are asking us to do,” Jamie Browning told Property Lines.To see the rest of the story, click here.
