Design development and revisions remain in process for Alliance Residential’s proposed 168 unit Broadstone Lakeside mixed use residential and office project at First Street and Wilson Street in Tempe.
Tempe planning staff continued the request for general plan and zoning amendments in August after identifying inconsistencies in responses to stipulations and concerns. No new timeline has been announced.
Discrepancies include the number of designated vehicle and bicycle parking spaces, setback and fire department access concerns, and inconsistent identification of building heights in the planning documents.
As planned, the two building developments west of the Farmer Arts District will feature a co-work design combining 168 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with ground floor office space fronting First Street. The Lakefront side will feature pillars, an archway and square entrances for residents and the public.
Pedestrian access will be along the north and south sides of the development to provide easy access for both pedestrians and bicyclists. A light rail station is less than half a mile away.
The majority of the buildings’ finish will be stucco accented with metal roofing elements and balconies, stone veneers and anodized aluminum. Proposed exterior colors include a variety of greys, slate, light blue and earth tones.
Landscaping will include acacia and a mix of palm trees, with aloe, bougainvillea and other accent shrubbery and ground cover..
