Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services has submitted an updated site plan and designs for the Stone Quarry Apartments project, on the site of the Ithaca Dispatch (behind Cole Muffler on Spencer Street). The updated plans are the result of new information on site conditions (existing soil), and constructability (design issues and cost projection).
The revised site plan shows the same unit breakdown, 6 additional parking spaces, modified site walkways, a new fence along Spencer and no rear doors exiting to Spencer due to the site grading requirements, and Mews (interior courtyards) between the buildings. The loading zones have been reduced in size (allowing for more parking) due to the change in zoning requirements, the balconies have been nixed in favor of windows, and the facades have been updated. The plan outlines the intention to resolve the final review this month, for a building permit issue in August to begin sitework in September this year. The development would build:
16 three-bedroom Townhouses
2 three-bedroom Apartments
11 two-bedroom Apartments
6 one-bedroom Apartments
The design has been completed by HOLT Architects, Trowbridge Wolf Michaels Landscape Architects, and Elwyn & Palmer Consulting Engineers.
