Park Plaza -- Summer 2017 to Fall 2018
The Park Plaza project involves the demolition of the former Chase Bank building on the corner of Hillcrest and Daniel and the construction of a mixed-use development, featuring office space, retail shops and restaurants.
The zoning and concept plan for this project were approved in October. The detailed site plan that provides specifics on building materials, landscape design and other details to ensure compliance with the concept plan has been approved by the City's Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council. Site demolition is in the final stages. The developer is working with the City's Community Development Department concerning the issuance of a building permit.

Summary of April 20 Snider Plaza Stakeholders meeting
In conjunction with the City’s purchase of property near Snider Plaza, on April 20, 2017, a roundtable meeting of Snider Plaza stakeholders was held to update participants on the current parking situation and solicit their input regarding parking issues and solutions. The roundtable, attended by property owners, business owners and interested citizens, was facilitated by Karen Walz, Principle of Strategic Community Solutions.
Based on the input received, there are several areas identified that need further study and input. The City Council has appointed a subcommittee consisting of representatives from the Snider Plaza property owners, business owners and members of Council to study the items identified and develop recommendations for consideration by the City’s Commercial Advisory Committee and the City Council.

Demolition of vacant properties to the west of Park Plaza site
Rogers-O’Brien Construction, in conjunction with Intercon Demolition, has demolished the vacant properties located at 3424, 3428, 3432 Haynie St. For the safety and well-being of the public, a mesh chain-link fence remains in place around the worksite including the western 1/3 of the existing parking lot.
2016 City Council/Planning and Zoning Commission Actions on project
October 18, 2016 - The City Council approved an ordinance for the redevelopment of property where the old Chase Bank building sits. The vote was 4 to 1. The Park Plaza project involves the demolition of the existing building on the corner of Hillcrest and Daniel, and the construction of a mixed-use development, featuring office space, retail shops and restaurants.
Prior to approving the ordinance, the City Council made several amendments to the document. The ordinance caps the development at 119,000 square feet, down from the previously proposed 127,880 square feet. The ordinance stipulates that the office tower cannot exceed 86 feet in height, a reduction from the recently proposed height of 95 feet. The building will have six stories, reduced from a proposed seven stories.
The project will have 626 total parking spaces, with 136 spaces at or above-grade and 490 below-grade for tenants. The ordinance calls for those 136 parking spaces on the grade and above-grade levels to be free-of-charge for the first hour. There will be a $3 charge for each hour or part of an hour for those slots after that. The maximum height of the western elevated portion of the parking garage will be 31 feet on both Daniel and Haynie sides of the project.
When the Planning and Zoning Commission approved the project on July 12 the office tower had a maximum height of 114 feet, was seven stories and totaled 127,880 square feet.
The Park Plaza Project was subject to public hearings in front of the Planning and Zoning Commission during June and July 2016. Public hearings in front of the City Council began in August 2016. The hearing process continued until ordinance approval on October 18.
