HORIZON: The first of two parts on Rome/Floyd’s next projects.
Developer Wayne Robinson’s bid for what’s next on West Third Street in downtown Rome is extensive — and logical in design.
Architect Mark Cochran of Cevian Design Lab shared the floor-by-floor look at what’s proposed adjacent to the Courtyard on the banks of the Oostanaula River.
The overall scope of the 2.2-acre project up for final city approval includes:
Retail: 21,895 square feet in all on the ground and second levels with 14 spots beginning at 1,200 square feet. Cochran says that could change to as many as 16 or as few as five.
Parking: 146 spaces.
Apartments: 49 in all on the second, third and fourth floors, together including four one-bedroom units, 34 two-bedroom units and 11 three-bedroom units.
Condos: Between 16 and 24 units on floors five and sixth.
Restaurant: A restaurant also is under considering for the seventh floor but those plans are fluid, says Cochran.
Background: The Robinson project is the latest in as many as three that have been discussed on the city-owned property. West Third has seen sporadic redevelopment in the last decade or so, starting with River City Bank on the former Rome Seed & Feed location at the corner of Second Avenue, the Courtyard which went through years of delay, major upgrades to Barron Stadium and just a bit further up Second Avenue, Harbin Clinic Cancer Center.
