Here’s the latest cloud-edged rendering of what could be coming to the corner of Yale and W. 21st streets, if Wellington Development gets its requested setback variance wish granted. A reader noticed the notice of the request posted outside of the building currently at 2105 Yale, which formerly housed Dorsey’s Beauty Academy prior to a decade of abandonment.
Wellington bought the spot last July, around which time Collum Commercial put out a leasing flyer showing a new floor-slash-parking plan for the property, which is boxed in on the non-Yale-and-21st-streets sides by the 2125 Yale apartments. Planned renovations to the building, which is listed in county records as 13,000 sq.ft., appear to involve some major trimming and resculpting to fit in new off-street parking spaces:
Another floorplan, submitted to the agenda of yesterday’s city planning commission meeting, shows the building pared down to about 5,000 sq.ft. and subdivided up for 3 tenants:
Other documents submitted for the latest round of consideration of the variance request show the intended footprint of that outdoor patio area being depicted on the 21st St. side (in tomatoey orange below); those diagrams indicate that the existing building on the site is already toeing over the property line, anyway:
Here’s a closeup of the patio plans, pulled out of 2D:
