Museum District infill project, restaurant near Byrd Park to be considered
The Richmond Planning Commission is scheduled to meet Monday. Full agenda here.
On the docket is a proposal to build four single-family attached townhomes at 3301 and 3303 Park Ave. in the Museum District. An existing house on the land would be demolished to pave the way for the project’s construction.
The new for-sale homes would have off-street parking. Two would face Park Avenue and two would face Tilden Street, according to the applicant report. The application was filed by Sekiv Solutions.
Staff recommends a deferral for the request to allow the project to be modified to adhere to West of the Boulevard Design Overlay District regulations.
Also for consideration is a special-use permit application to allow a restaurant to operate on the first floor of 401 S. Stafford Ave., in addition to an apartment unit on the building’s second floor.
The ground floor, which is currently vacant, would be occupied by a sandwich shop, according to the application filed by Baker Development Resources.
The commission will vote on whether to recommend final approval by the City Council, which will weigh the proposals at a future meeting.
