Planning Commission to review turning Old Town parking garage into townhouses

As the Hotel Indigo plans to open up its parking, the neighborhood will be losing a garage right across the street.

The Planning Commission will discuss both matters on Sept. 9, and will review plans to convert The Strand Parking garage (101 Duke Street) to a series of townhouses.

According to the application:

The applicant proposes demolition of the current structure and the development and construction of six townhouses, each with a two-car garage.

Given that the project will be increasing the overall floor-area ratio, the project requires approval of a special use permit.

The three-level-garage was originally build in 1945 and has 72 spaces.
