Melo Group is asking city commissioners to approve zoning changes needed to build the Art Plaza project.
If approved, zoning on the property would be changed from T6-24-A-O to T6-24-B-O. The new designation would allow a full 48 story tower to be built due to an increase in the FLR multiplier from 7 to 16. Bonus Floor Area would also be increased from 30% to 40%.
The Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board has already voted in favor of the change.
A project map that was recently displayed at a Melo Group event showed that what appeared to be a twin tower project. Art Plaza would include:
667 residential units
15,000 square feet of retail
886 parking spaces
The project is across the street from the under-construction Square Station.
