Revised plans for an apartment building on Delaware Avenue will be considered by the Preservation Board on Thursday. LCB Capital LLC is seeking to build a five-story apartment building at 505 Delaware Avenue with 40 units. The existing land of 5,972 sq.ft. The Delaware Avenue building would be renovated in a second phase and would include the conversion of the second and third floors into four apartments.
The new L-shaped building would primarily replace a surface parking lot. A one-story building along Virginia Place would be demolished. On June 9, the Preservation Board filed the project “to allow the applicant to better harmonize the design of the building with its surrounding historic context by exploring a cohesive masonry exterior cladding and upper floor setbacks to reduce its footprint and its visible height”.
Silvestri Architects proposed a redesign, altering the massing of the building, including a fourth-floor rooftop patio overlooking Virginia Place. On the ground floor, the building lobby is flush with the sidewalk and design changes have been made to better protect the proposed ground floor parking.
The project’s 44 total units include eight studios, 33 one-bedroom units and three two-bedroom units.
