Villa de Grip Meeting 8.3.2017

Neighbors came out to hear more about the Villa de Grip proposed plan and zoning change Thursday night at Regina Brewer's home. Brewer hosted an informal meeting with architect, Cooper Pierce, to give neighbors an opportunity to hear about the project before it goes to a vote at this month's IPNA meeting. Neighbors were vocal about the high volume of new traffic they say the development would create, along with increased danger to pedestrians trying to cross North Highland at Elizabeth. Neighbors also expressed concerns about people turning into the would-be parking garage from N. Highland, an entrance that would be roughly 35-feet from the stop sign at N. Highland and Elizabeth. Residents said that N. Highland is always backed up to Caramel St. at night and the new development would only further back up the already strained intersection.  (read more)


 

Villa de Grip Building Rezoning and Redevelopment Proposal

The owners of the parcel located at 320 N. Highland, the building known as Villa de Grip, have proposed a major development.  In addition to renovating the existing building, the owners plan to add two new buildings to the site.  Under the plans, the existing Villa de Grip building would be renovated to house a 5,000+ square foot restaurant on the ground floor and to provide 5,000+ square feet of office space on the second floor.  A second, three-story building would be built with another restaurant on the first floor and office space on the two upper floors.  Finally, an additional building would be constructed with a three-level parking deck and two additional floors of office space above.
