City commissioners won’t be making any decisions tonight after all on a proposal to build a multi-story hotel/apartment building at Ninth and New Hampshire streets.
Lawrence-based Treanor Architects, just hours before tonight’s meeting, submitted new plans for the project that showed a reduction in height for the building, along with other changes to materials, traffic flow and signs.
Those changes caused the City Manager’s office to announce late this afternoon that city commissioners would not take any votes on the project at their meeting, which starts at 6:35 p.m.
Instead, the project will be sent back to the Historic Resources Commission for further review. That discussion likely will happen at the HRC’s Dec. 15 meeting.
But city commissioners tonight will hear a presentation from the architects about the proposed changes to the design, which includes shortening the back side of the building by two stories. Commissioners also will accept public comment on the project at tonight’s meeting.
Check back to LJWorld.com later this evening for more details about the new plan for the project.
