Excelsior delays Water Street complex again

The Excelsior City Council on June 19 further delayed the proposed residential and commercial building project at 289 Water St., causing the owner to say he would withdraw the request for a conditional use permit.

Before any paperwork to withdraw the request was submitted to the city, Brian H. Burdick said he had changed his mind and would continue to seek the permit. The project will be reviewed at 7 p.m., Monday, July 17.

The development is planned for the 0.22 acre, 10-stall parking lot on Water Street and Third Street, located on the corner between Vinaigrette and Excelsior Brewing Co. The plan is for a two-story building with retail on the first floor and residential space on the second floor.

The retail space is planned for 3,200 square feet and would include one or two tenants. There is one door on the corner of Water Street and Third Street and another door on Water Street.

The residential space would be 3,392 square feet with two apartments, which will each have two bedrooms and bathrooms.

The building would include an enclosed trash area, up-down wall scone lighting and a four-space 3,271 square feet underground parking area accessible by an elevator with an entrance on Third Street.
