Responses to recent questions

Here are responses to recent questions about the proposed redevelopment.

Planned construction schedule:
Fresh Market & garage: begin construction in Spring/Summer 2011, complete in Fall/Winter 2011
Geneva medical/professional building: begin construction Fall/Winter 2011, complete in Fall/Winter 2012
The Residences building (Webster): begin construction Spring/Summer 2012, complete Spring/Summer 2013
The Flats building (Grant): begin construction Spring 2012 or Summer 2013 (depending on market demand) complete one year later

The lease for the Fresh Market is one 10-year term with six five-year options, for a total term of 40 years.

Decision to forego senior living in favor of the medical offices and how this will impact the neighborhood.
Some residents opposed the senior living component as it would include approximately 170 dwelling units, increasing traffic and pedestrian crossings to the garage. Also, the senior component included more retail space (on both sides of Webster) - with less retail the additional units for senior living became less critical and less feasible.
The professional/medical offices are an ideal use of this building. A number of potential users have already expressed interest.
The medical offices are already permitted under the current and proposed zoning. If the proposed rezoning is not approved, that building could be leased in the immediate future with tenants already identified.
