Smith Street Could Get Very, Very Shiny

Smith Street Rendering

When we got an email the other day from someone trying to rally opposition to a new development on Smith Street and 2nd Place we immediately realized they were talking about a building whose rendering has been posted for a long time. The plans have been filed and were just disapproved, but that could only be a temporary setback. The building, which is designed by Scarano Architects would be eight stories tall and have 46 apartments. Our emailer writes that "the plaza in front of the Carroll Station will disappear and no garden is planned in front. The street’s aesthetics will be slightly modified by a metallic-gray façade." He adds that residents are working to have "this project changed to something taking care of the Carroll Gardens style." Stay tuned.

This was mentioned at the CGNA meeting a couple of weeks ago, but yetserday was the first time I saw a rendering.

It is an awful design for that corner, and there's no way it's happening without a knock-down drag-out brawl.

My sleeves are rolled up.

guys lets not forget that the building has to line up with the rest on 2nd pl. so garden will be there but shorter. i was there this morning and i think we will still have about 3-4 trees depending on proximity to the building, but the area in between the building and sidewalk is city's, therefore they cannot be touched.
