Update: December 12, 2016  CIDNA Considers New Apartment Project

Your participation is encouraged.

The Project: CIDNA is in discussions with Brickstone Partners concerning a new apartment project at 3100 West Lake Street. The project would be located on the north side of West Lake Street, south of Lake Calhoun Flats Apartments, between Calhoun Loop Condominiums and the Lake Point Tower. The developer would demolish the existing office building, formerly know as the Ministers Life Building, to make way for the project. Please see pictures and details at cidnalanduse.wordpress.com.

Public Input:  All stakeholders and residents in the community are encouraged to comment on this project. 

The developer will give a brief presentation at the CIDNA Board Meeting:
Wednesday, December 14, about 6:30 p.m.  
Jones-Harrison Residence, Lakeview Room
3700 Cedar Lake Ave
Note: No public comments will be taken at this meeting, but attendees can speak with developer representatives outside of the board meeting after the presentation. 

Residents adjacent to the project at Loop and Lake Point condominiums are encouraged to quickly contact their Homeowners Associations during the month of December. 

The CIDNA Land Use Committee will hold a public hearing about the project:
Thursday, January 26 at 6:00 p.m. at the
Jones Harrison Residence, Lakeview Room  
3700 Cedar Lake Ave
Note: Public comments will be taken at this meeting.  

Public comments may be submitted at any time to Bob Corrick, Chair of the Land Use Committee, at corrickcidna@gmail.com.  

The CIDNA Board of Directors may consider its formal position on this project, after taking recommendations from its Land Use Committee, on Wednesday, February 8, 6:00 p.m., Jones Harrison Residence Lakeview Room.

Update: March 15, 2015
The Greystar and Trammell Crow projects in CIDNA are both scheduled for groundbreaking soon this spring.

Building construction for the Greystar project at 2622 West Lake Street will be a Post-tensioned
concrete building with one level of underground parking.  The first floor will have parking in the back, with Leasing, amenities and apartments in the front. The building will be eight stories tall on Lake Street and drop to 3 stories facing the Greenway.  Frana Companies will be the general contractor on the project.

Construction will commence, weather permitting, March 16, 2015 with staging, fencing and excavation.

The building will be supported by piles, which will start the following week (March 23) and continue throughout May.

Foundation and parking floor slabs will be poured through the end of June, with the additional floors and supporting columns constructed through November 2015.  Walls and interior finish work will be started in September and continue throughout the winter and spring with occupancy in Summer 2016.

 

Update: June 2014
Both projects outlined below were approved by the Planning Commission

 

Update: April 2014

On Wednesday, April 9, 2014 the CIDNA Board unanimously approved resolutions not to oppose two apartment projects following recommendations by its Land Use Committee on April 7.
Greystar has proposed a 90-unit luxury apartment project on the vacant land at Thomas Avenue
and West Lake Street. The developer is seeking a conditional use permit to exceed the 35-and
56-foot height proscriptions. Greystar has achieved a sensitive balance between respect for the
shoreland, parks, trails, and single-family residences while considering the context of the
12-story Calhoun Beach Club Apartments and the City’s classification of West Lake Street as a
high-density thoroughfare.

Trammell Crow Company has proposed a development on the site of Tryg’s restaurant at 3118
West Lake Street. CIDNA commended the developer for addressing the neighborhood’s concerns
about height, Greenway and Loop Condos interface, and project design, which eliminated the
previously monolithic character of the building. The average height of the project would be about
60 feet, and would be within +/- 4 feet of the Loop Condos height.
