In order for the project to move forward at Broad and Washington, the Alterra Group’s plans call for the rezoning of the property from industrial to mixed-use. Councilman Kenyatta Johnson is now introducing two bills that could make the process much easier for the proposed nine-story complex with 356 apartments, 360 parking spots, a grocery store, various other retailers and more.

More from PlanPhilly:

Councilman Kenyatta Johnson introduced two bills on Thursday that would allow Alterra Property Group to build a nine-story, 356-unit apartment complex and grocery store at the northwest corner of Broad Street and Washington Avenue, across the street from the vacant lot where Bart Blatstein is hoping to build a 32-story tower with a fourth-floor retail village.

One bill would rezone the property from I-2 industrial to CMX-3, a commercial mixed-use category. The other wouldexempt the property from a number of requirements in the Washington Avenue West Overlay, allowing an eating and drinking establishment, increasing the permitted occupied area, and allowing non-accessory parking.

    We need more green space in this area! There are plenty of places to shop, as well as plenty of abandoned house-sized lots that could be developed.
