The City has received a proposal for a mixed use project on a 7.28-acre site at 1650 65th Street. The project involves demolition of three existing buildings: a one-story, approximately 127,260-square-foot office and life sciences building (known as the Atrium Building) and two SAE Expressions College buildings totaling 33,619 square feet and 29,700 square feet, respectively, along the northern property line. There are no existing tenants in the Atrium Building and SAE Expressions College has a two-year lease.
The project proposes constructing two office and lab towers and one residential tower. The three existing parcels would be merged and then redivided into two parcels. The first parcel would include a 144-unit residential tower and 144 podium parking spaces. The second parcel would include two towers totaling approximately 750,000 square feet of office/lab space, 1.66 acres of public open space, and 1,497 podium parking spaces.
The Planning Commission held a study session on July 22, 2021.
