If approved, three separate lots on East Pine Street could be the future home of the Olive (Website).
The three lots, comprised of 619,621, and 623 East Pine [GMap], could soon host a new three-story, six-unit development. The proposed building has already been seen by the City Planning Division.
The plans propose a structure that features first floor transparency, 19 off-street parking spaces (three per unit), a “highly articulated street facade,” and more. The units range in size from 2,500 SF to 3,000 SF.
The project goes before the Appearance Review Board on July 21, 2-16. ARB Staff preliminary comments stated:
“The massing and the scale of The Olive Townhouse project is compatible with the surrounding residential structures. The contemporary elevations, while out of character with the adjacent traditional architecture, are complimented by the nearby contemporary midrises and towers. Taken in context with the South Eola Neighborhood as whole, the project solidly adds to the eclectic ambiance of a neighborhood in an up and coming transition. The site plan, unlike similar constricted projects, has ample room for vehicle circulation, common area open space and internal visitor parking. All-in-all The Olive Townhouses are a well designed Downtown residential project that will be a great addition to the South Eola Neighborhood. “
