Pine Street Project Passes Hurdle

Pine Street Project Passes Hurdle

By Beth Milligan

Traverse City planning commissioners Tuesday approved a special land use permit (SLUP) for a proposed nine-story, mixed-used development at Pine and Front streets – but developers could face a bumpy road to final zoning approvals.

Planning commissioners voted 5-2 to allow Pine Street Development One to build two 96-foot buildings on a 1.6 acre site on the Boardman River adjacent to Riverview Terrace. Commissioners Janet Fleshman and Bill Twietmeyer opposed the SLUP. The development would bring 162 residential units – including a combination of affordable housing apartments and high-end condos – and nearly 25,000 square feet of commercial and restaurant space to downtown Traverse City. A two-level parking deck would provide 177 auto parking spaces and 132 bicycle spaces for the development.

Traverse City Planning Director Russ Soyring recommended approving the SLUP provided several conditions were met, including using construction materials and colors that would “give the appearance of several individual buildings” rather than large monolithic structures, and requiring the developer to provide an easement and public access for the planned future construction of city boardwalk along the Boardman River. more
