Are You Ready For a New Proctor?
Here's a date that those of you with an interest in the Proctor District may want to put on your calendar: Thursday, January 16. A resolution on this week's City Council meeting consent agenda would set that as the date for a public hearing for the proposed street vacation of a portion of the alley air rights west of Proctor between North 27th and 28th. Why?
28 Proctor Holdings LLC proposes to construct a five story mixed use development in the heart of the Proctor District. The petitioner believes the project will provide much needed rental units and retail space to the area, which will benefit local businesses and provide additional housing options for city residents. Vacating the air rights will allow the development to span the right-of way and keep the alley open to the public for vehicular traffic.
The 28 Proctor mixed-use development is a project we've heard about from time to time for a while now. Last we heard this was just a concept, but putting a date on the Hearing Examiner calendar makes it seem like it might be a little more real.
A general description of the project and a couple pictures are posted at RickMosesDevelopment.com under "current projects."
This could certainly change the feel of the neighborhood.
