ALC took a great amount of pride with our services for the vacant Lincoln Elementary School. The project commenced with a re-zoning application and opened in just over a year. With 40,000 square feet of building square footage, ALC provided planning, civil engineering and landscape architecture services in this high-profile local redevelopment project. Site modifications included a new parking lot, six new entries along Tejon Street and new landscape around the building. The zoning was changed from a residential use to PUD to allow for restaurants, a brewery, retail, neighborhood services, offices and the potential for upper floor. In just over one year from the commencement of the project, the building is over 90% leased with tenants including SoCo CrossFit, a coffee shop, a barbershop, a smoothie shop, bakery, yoga studio, pilates and massage therapy and a brewery yet to be announced. In the re-zoning process working in conjunction with the City of Colorado Springs, diversions from the standard codes included the use of adjacent on-street parking, shared parking reductions, increased height restrictions and the zoning allowance for future upper floor residential uses.
