The Danville Planning Commission is set to review potential alterations at the Clock Tower Shopping Center during its regular meeting on Tuesday evening, alterations that consist of expanding the second story space, building a new public plaza and other additions.
Located in the heart of the downtown area at 301 Hartz Ave., town staff say the building owners have requested they be allowed to construct a 2,677 square foot second story addition as well as a 173-square-foot ground floor trash enclosure on the property.
The proposed project would also include a complete building façade remodel and landscape improvements which, according to assistant planner Brianne Reyes, would “allow the development of a new public plaza as a public-accessible outdoor gathering space -- preliminarily estimated to be in the range of 3,850 to 4,400 square feet.”
The applicant is also requesting the commission allow them to construct four new building towers along the site’s Hartz Avenue frontage.
Reyes went on to say that the proposed floor area ratio for the project is 115%, which exceeds the 80% maximum ratio allowed in this particular area. Overcoming this limit will require authorization from the Planning Commission.
The Danville Planning Commission is scheduled to gather for its regular meeting on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Meeting Hall, 201 Front St.
