EAGLE ROCK — City planning commissioners are scheduled to vote Thursday on a proposed 5-story, block-long residential and commercial development that would rise on the site of a failed real estate project that has sat dormant for a decade.
The 55,000-square-foot project with 26 units of housing, balconies, rooftop decks and about 4,100-square-feet of commercial space resembles a white cruise ship rising above the 1300 block of Colorado Boulevard. Developers want Planning Commission approval to build a project that is substantially larger than would normally be allowed in return for setting aside two apartments for very-low income tenants.
Planning Department staff have recommended that the commissioners support the project, which they say is exempt from a more detailed environmental impact report.
The row of unfinished concrete columns and rusting steel rebar that became known as “Pillarhenge,” a 300-foot-long eyesore that defied years of efforts to have it developed or at least cleaned up.
