After push back from neighborhood residents, People Inc. has returned with a revised design for its senior apartment project at the southeast corner of Linwood and Lafayette avenues. The three-story building will include 37 one and two-bedroom apartments ranging from 700 to 925 square feet. There will be a small community room with kitchenette at the main level of the building and parking for 37 cars at the rear.
A previous design with prominent bay windows has been replaced with one that has stacked patios.
More from the application to the Planning Board:
“To date we have attended five community meetings; have met with the preservation board twice; and have refined our overall scheme three times. As of writing this, the building was approved by the historic preservation board at their 11/10 meeting, with the understanding that we will refine the look of the individual apartment patio areas. We are working with the preservation board, via special subcommittee, to ensure that when we go back to the board on December 1st, we will have a vetted and approved solution.”
The project is designed by Long Associates Architects. It will occupy a surface parking lot that was part of the Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital site.
