The Historic and Design Review Commission granted conceptual approval Wednesday for rooftop additions to the Aztec Theatre.
HDRC on Wednesday gave conceptual approval to the land bridge that would connect the east and west sides of Phil Hardberger Park.
HDRC commissioners last week suggested that the proposed luxury apartment tower near Southtown be designed taller and more slender.
The decision came around 10:30 p.m. after more than three hours of discussion by the Historic and Design Review Commission and residents.
A small surface parking lot on the edge of Southtown could soon be the location of a 12-story luxury apartment tower.
Developers of a multi-million project near the Hays Street Bridge have agreed to one more meeting with community stakeholders before HDRC votes on the plan.
Staff initially recommended not approving the Eastside project because it would be disproportionately larger than the historic home on the lot.
HDRC voted unanimously Wednesday to hold off on a decision that would allow or block an apartment complex near the Eastside’s historic Hays Street Bridge.
Local firms ford, powell & carson, WestEast Design Group, and landscape architects Rialto Studio spearheaded the design of the new headquarters campus.
Over the last few years, the sense of purpose and nobility in historic preservation has become increasingly tarnished by battles over infill.
