Lydon Lynch Architects has requested a substantive amendment to an existing development agreement that enabled a multi-unit building, to allow for 9 additional units, on PID 41457979 located on Fourth St in Bedford.
The applicant wishes to change the interior of the proposed building to increase the total number of units, which is resulting in changes to the window placement on the outside. Their will be no changes to the size of the proposed building—the size of the building will remain the same. The major aspects of the proposal are as follows:
- Increase the total unit count from 18 to 27;
- Increase the number of surface parking spaces from 5 to 25, with corresponding changes to the site plan;
- Building size, shape, layout and location is the same as the approved DA; and
- Changes to the elevations to reflect a revised window placement.
The Development Plans (provided below) outline the development proposal in detail, and include information related to the new site plan, elevations, addendum to the traffic statement and a planning rationale.
