Project Working Name
2304 Hillsborough Street just west of the intersection with Logan Court beside Bruegger’s Bagels. The building was most recently Hot Box Pizza.
This re-zoning request is to re-develop 2304 Hillsborough Street into a 5 story building with first floor retail and 4 floors of student housing above. Part of the second floor may have retail. Fourteen apartment units are proposed with approximately 40-50 bedrooms planned. There is no parking specifically for residents. The proposed building’s footprint will be such that none of the existing parking lot spaces at the rear of the site will be removed. The building envelope will encompass the maximum building footprint for the site allowing for a 14’+ wide sidewalk in front with service vehicle access in the rear.
