Two Options for Washington Square Mixed-Use in Arlington Heights

New, 8 comments

A draft Environmental Impact Report has been released for the Washington Square mixed-use project, planned for a trapezoidal site at Washington and Tenth Avenue. According to the report, local development firm Root 3 is asking for entitlements for two project options, as a hedge against "changing market forces." Both are evaluated in the draft EIR. Option A is bigger and taller, blocking views to St. Paul's Catholic Church and its rectory. Option B is shorter, with a lot more commercial space and less residential space. Root 3 is still planning to start building in late 2011 and open in late 2013, so we could be in suspense for a while.

Both options will have three buildings. Option A's buildings will range from 3 to 18 stories, with heights of 68 to 205 feet. Included are:
- 547 residential units
- 328 apartments
- 219 condos
- 106,869 square feet commercial space
- 82,539 sf of retail
- 24,330 sf of restaurant
- 145,000 sf of open space
- 1,061 parking spaces

Option B is a lot shorter, with four to seven story buildings and 50 to 85 foot heights, and less housing, but with the addition of office space:
- 342 residential units
- 125 apartments
- 217 condos
- 237,125 sf of commercial space
- 176,125 sf of retail
- 25,100 sf of restaurant
- 35,900 sf of office space
- 100,000 sf of open space
- 1,368 parking spaces

The draft EIR will circulate through February 22. Meanwhile, the renderings mentioned in the EIR are courtesy of Nadel Architects.
