Interested in seeing the new plans for Better Housing Coalitions’s Venable Street project? All are invited to come out TONIGHT at 6PM to the BHC headquarters at 23 West Broad Street.
The affordable housing project on Venable Street has drawn criticism by near-by neighbors for the social and safety implications of the central parking lot, the scale of the buildings, and the aesthetic of the design. A meeting was held last night with Councilperson Newbille, towards impressing upon her the feelings of the community and the need for revision.
The Commission of Architectural Review rejected the initial proposal at their November meeting. BHC is working on a new design, thought it is unclear if this will be ready in time to make the January CAR agenda.
