Related Rendering High Quality

Someone was kind enough late yesterday to send us high quality renderings of the Related Companies/Monadnock proposal for the Public Place parcel. Related is one of the two finalists along with the Hudson Companies to develop the long-vacant property which was once home to a manufactured gas plant. The city will likely choose a developer next month and hopes to wrap up the land use review process in 2009. Details of the two proposals were in our post yesterday. The renderings are of such high resolution that we were able to pull out individual parts as they’re definitely of interest to anyone curious about the future of this parcel. Related would build 725 units of housing, 22,000 square feet of retail, 9,013 square feet of community space, 86,529 square feet of public open space. It would include 375 underground parking spaces. Of the housing in the Related proposal, 245 would be rental units, 480 would be condos and 100 would be senior citizen apartments. There would be some four-story town houses on Fifth Street and some on Luquer Street as well. The project was designed by Handel Architects. Partners include Monadnock Construction Inc., Catholic Charities and Donna Walcavage Landscape Architect.
