The $650 million mixed-use project planned for the former Symphony Center site has started to raise concerns among some in the Midtown community. According to the plans submitted to the city, the project could include as many as 1,300 multi-family units, 340 hotel rooms, and almost 100k SF of retail space. If all goes according to plan, the project will break ground in 2015, commence construction in multiple phases, and deliver in 2020.
Many who work and live in the surrounding area are concerned about a development this size, especially when there are several other multi-family towers being constructed just down the street. The concerns are centered around parking for needed to accommodate patrons of a project this size as well as the traffic on surrounding streets that it could create. It’s clear that the 98 14th Street project will have to negotiation with adjacent building and land owners to increase the vehicular and pedestrian access to the site.Share
