April 9, 2014 by CIDNA Committee
The CIDNA Land Use and Development Committee unanimously approved resolutions on April 7 supporting

the Trammell Crow and Greystar apartment projects. In both cases the developers have responded positively to CIDNA’s guidelines and requests for improvement. The Land Use Committee is recommending approval of these projects by CIDNA on Wednesday, April 9.
Trammell Crow reduced the height of their project to +/- 4 feet of the Loop Condos height, added attractive Greenway interface, eliminated the “L” to create a clear side yard, and offered major design improvements in terms of articulation, architectural features, and materials.
Greystar responded to 10 years of work on the Weisman site by CIDNA, modelling key features of their project to the Lander project approved by CIDNA in 2006. The result is an elegant design solution that
Trammell Crow Apartments & the new Tryg’s Restaurant from West Lake Street
strikes a sensitive balance between conflicting interests—the shoreland, Midtown Greenway, parks, single-family residences, 12-story CBC Apartments, and West Lake Street as a major high-density thoroughfare.
