Update, May 1: At the request of the copyright holder, images of the proposed development have been removed.
Michael Hsu designed a new 2-story structure (depicted in a rendering posted on HAIF) for a spot directly across Yale from the existing retail building (above) he created as part of the Heights Mercantile complex near 7th St. Like its neighbor — which went up not long ago in place of a Pappas Restaurants warehouse — the new building will replace a metal-sided structure, this one currently occupied by Urban Jungle Self Defense:
The proposed structure will go directly north of the former Koelsch Gallery at the end of 7th St. designed by Dillon Kyle. You can see that building — now occupied by Studio 703 — peeking out on the left in both the photo above and the rendering from Michael Hsu’s office.
Not so lucky: this adjacent brick 4-plex slated to be run over by a driveway to the north of the new building, as shown in the site plan.
The second floor of the structure — intended for medical offices — has an open-air lobby reached by an outdoor staircase from the parking lot behind:
From a prominent, possibly-steel-framed picture window upstairs fronting Yale, patients will be able to look across the street to Define Body and Mind’s second-story gym above Local Foods in the existing Building 4.
