What's Happening in:  Bella Vista 

Low-rise building in Bella Vista coming down to make way for 4 houses

A one-story building at 1020 Catharine Street is set to be torn down to make way for four townhouses with parking, according to a zoning notice.

The address on the zoning app is actually 801 S. Warnock St.

The current building is fairly unremarkable, though someone with better architectural knowledge would be able to determine whether this would be an example of “midcentury modern.” (Anyone?) The houses replacing it look like they’ll be fairly pretty, though.

The houses will be about 3,000 square feet. Bay windows will pop out the front of the second and third floors, plus there will be a third floor balcony and a roof deck. Parking will be accessed in the back via Alder Street.

The plan was amended from an earlier proposal that called for six homes on the lot, which got rejected last April. This does seem to make more sense for that size of a lot, right?
