A plan to raze the two-story warehouse and adjacent parking lot at 33 Norfolk Street and construct a five-story building with nine residential units over two ground-floor retail spaces and a garage for residents has been submitted to Planning for review.
From the Planning Department with respect to a proposed elevated rear yard on the second floor of the development:
The orientation and location of the rear yard is appropriate in relation to current existing uses that are likely to remain. The rear yard will not be likely augmented by adjoining rear yards in the foreseeable future, and will therefore need to be self-sufficient in the ability to provide light, air, and open space for the project.
Beatbox, Audio and Bergerac are the 11th Street clubs currently operating in the two taller buildings behind the 33 Norfolk parcel, while the shorter grocery store building behind the site sits on a parcel zoned for commercial development up to 55 feet in height.
