Project would develop substantial, new, up-scale residential mixed-use mid-rise to high-rise development on non-contributing properties to the urban fabric of the area.Redevelop the center median of Broad Street to accommodate restaurants and retail and serve as a steppingstone from one side of Broad Street to the other.Convert Ellis Street and the rear area of private buildings into coordinated surface parking area. Develop mid-block connections where possible to Greene Street.Along Reynolds and Jones Streets, consider building a new grocery store.
