A 275 unit, 38 floor, condominium building with 4800 sf of retail space served by 337 parking spaces is proposed for the parcel east of Spruce Place. West of Spruce Place the construction of a two new, linked, 6 floor apartment buildings and the renovation of the former Eitel Hospital will provide 204 housing units and 2000 sf of retail space served by 242 parking spaces.
