The Planning Board on Tuesday saw a presentation by Uniland on its plans for a site at Delaware and Chippewa, where the Delaware Court building stands, but the company said the designs are in process and did not seek their approval.
Responding to neighborhood concerns, the company said the five-level parking garage that would be accessed from Chippewa and back up to Elmwood, would actually be three stories, because one level will be underground and the top level wouldn't have much height.
"From my perspective, it's moving in the right direction," said Planning Board member Cynthia Schwartz, though she said she had concerns about the loading dock.
The dock would be on Chippewa, but company officials said they could limit the hours that it would be available for use.
The project won a key approval last week from the Preservation Board, which is not objecting to its plans to demolish the building a recreate the look of it on the same site.
The board did approve Bistro Europa's plans to move into a space at 365-367 Connecticut St. The restaurant plans to change its name, but isn't ready to announce what that is yet. Bistro Europa operates out of a small space in the Elmwood Village.
At the new location, some additions on the building would be knocked down and a new one-story addition would be added for a commercial kitchen and to extend the dining room.
