City leaders hold a special meeting and public hearing Tuesday to consider allowances for a planned 72-condominium development in a parking lot below Lafayette BART.
Officials will discuss approvals for and an amendment to the city's BART Block Specific Plan, which sets building heights at three stories and 35 feet in an area of downtown, according to an email from City Manager Steve Falk. The project is the third phase of the Town Center project of shops and apartments near mass transit. A city staff report on the project is attached to this article.
The council voted in October to send plans for the third phase of the Town Center project back to the design review and planning commissions after discussing the building's design and mass. They heard a suggestion this week from city staff to approve the project with the condition it be sent back to the Design Review Commission for more work on building exterior plans. Council members voted to continue the matter.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, 3491 Mt. Diablo Boulevard.
