Proposed Site Plan: 1300 - 1306 Glenwood Avenue
The commentary below was prepared by Fred Belliden, the developer's architect from Clearscapes.

As shown in the plans that are online, the unit count and overall arrangement is identical to what we last showed the Glenwood-Brooklyn neighborhood. There are a total of (8) units, including the existing house at the corner of Glenwood and Jefferson. Each unit has an individual front entry and porch facing the street. With the exception of the existing house, all parking is accommodated in basement garages under each unit and parking access is from the rear alley.
There is no subdivision or recombination of the parcels. The two parcels are master-planned together and will share amenities, as we previously described to the neighborhood. The City asked us to submit two separate site plans since the lot lines are unchanged.
From a zoning code standpoint, the units will be legally organized as condominiums. From a building code standpoint, the units are recognized as and will be permitted as townhouses - each unit is the full height of the building and has an individual ground floor entrance and front porch or stoop facing the street.
The lot at 1306 will be one duplex (two units total). The existing house at 1300 will have the recent addition removed to return the house to its original size and will be expanded to be a sixplex (six units total). This arrangement and unit count is the same that we last presented to the neighborhood.
The overall site design is very similar to what we last showed the neighborhood with the following changes:
- We've reduced the size/footprint of the (4) units on Glenwood and have further articulated the building forms based on neighborhood precedents.
- We've articulated the building form of the (3) units on Jefferson based on neighborhood precedents.
- We're continuing to work with the City of Raleigh on the design of the vehicular drive.
- We've started to integrate street trees, landscaping, bus bench, etc.
