The revised plans for the King of Jeans building were approved by the EPX zoning committee recently, with a couple interesting conditions.
The latest proposal includes office space on the second floor
The proposal, which we first told you about in July, will now have nine apartments instead of 12 spread over three of the five floors. The first floor will be all retail and second floor will be all office space. Conditions include an indoor bike storage room, which developer Max Glass planned for all along, and “no parking permit” riders in the lease for three units. New lighting also will be installed along the dank alley, er, Iseminger Street, that curves behind the building.
The most interesting proviso, in our eyes anyway, is the restricted hours for the roof deck. Residents can’t use it after 10 p.m. on weeknights and midnight on Friday and Saturdays. We’re not sure how much noise the two-story neighbors would be able to hear from atop a five story building, but hey, at least the damn thing got approved with unanimous support.
“Not only unanimous support but vocal support,” Glass told us. “It was great.” He didn’t bat an eyelash at the restricted hours. “I think the roof deck hours are fair. The cafes can’t have outdoor seating past the same hours.” (That doesn’t explain the Cantina, but that’s OK).
He’s still looking for tenants. Retail is about 2,700 square feet, about 3,000 for the office space, which has an “open floor plan. It has a light-well and courtyard in the middle.” So if you know any hip start-ups looking for light-filled office space, you can find contact info for Glass here.
