<![CDATA[WashWest Toll Bros CDR for Jewelers Row]]> http://planphilly.com/events/2017/01/24/washwest-toll-bros-cdr-for-jewelers-row January 24, 2017 7:00PM 8:30PM

Toll Brothers will be presenting to the WashWest Zoning Committee the proposal for the Jewelers Row project that is being submitted to the Planning Commission and will be addressed by the Civic Design Review. As the Civic will have a seat on that committee, our discussion will focus on what the CDR evaluates.

The general intent of the CDR is to assess the proposed characteristics and quality of the public realm that is an integral part of any development project.  

The CDR will address the way in which a large proposed development may have an impact on its neighborhood (the ground floor where the relationship of outside spaces to inside spaces can be understood, landscape, parking, public open space and the relationship of the proposed development to adjacent buildings and spaces).
