Carlyle Design Review Board Considers Three Projects 

This month, three projects are coming before the Carlyle Design Review Board for design refinements. 

Carlyle Plaza 2 (south residential tower) is being reviewed as to its proposed rooftop amenity space and design alterations including reconfiguration of loading, height adjustment, modification of an overhang, and alteration of north-south balconies.  The project includes 366 residential units, in a striking building designed by Arquitectonica and developed by JM Zell Partners.

Stonebridge Carras’ proposed mixed use project on Hoffman Town Center blocks 4 and 5 (2410 and 2460 Mill Road) is undergoing its Concept II review prior to its Development Special Use Permit application scheduled for public hearing in November.  The project proposes 975,000 square feet of retail and residential development north and west of the movie theaters.

Paradigm Development Company is proposing a new development on Block 20, formerly the site of the American Trucking Associations building.  Two options are being evaluated: A) 436,000 sf of residential and 109,000 sf of hotel, or B) 365,000 sf residential and 107,000 sf office.  The current application is for review of massing and scale.
