ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Gwen Davis

On Thursday evening, the Southwest Design Review Board held two meetings — one about the structure at 3039 Avalon Way, the other about a development at 4220 SW 100th.

This was the second and final time this project went before the board. The architects, Steve Fischer and Karen Kiest from Nicholson Kovalchich Architects gave a 20-minute presentation to the board about their improved plans.

“It’s a six-story building, with 71 units on 18,000 square feet,” Fischer began. “We have shown that we are in the urban village [and have tweaked the plan.”

The development would provide only 18 ground level parking spaces, but Fischer noted that they didn’t even need to provide those spaces since urban villages provide frequent transit.

Fischer described the appearance of the building, now with painted wood paneling, and how the building now sits further back from public view.
