The developers behind the proposed “Shared Roof” project at 7009 Greenwood Ave. N. are hosting a second community meeting to get input outside of the city’s formal Design Review program. Their first informal community meeting was July 29 and the first Early Design Guidance meeting was Aug. 15.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 7, at Woodland Park Presbyterian Church, directly across the street on 70th. Evolution Projects will present updated project plans and allow time for questions and comments from neighbors.

Initial plans for the mixed use development, which they’re calling “Shared Roof,” called for a six-story apartment building with 43 units above ground-floor retail. Apartments would range from one- to four-bedrooms, with square footage ranging from 623 to 2,079. Parking would be provided for 30 vehicles below grade. A public park on the west side would be 4,700 square feet, with another 3,000 square feet of public open space between ground-floor retail.

Evolution Projects is asking for 12,185 square feet to be rezoned from Neighborhood Commercial 40’ to NC265. In exchange, they would include affordable housing units.
