Downtown building sailing toward approval

A mixed-use building with restaurants, offices and a rooftop patio and bar proposed for the Heritage District is likely to get a stamp of approval when it returns to the Redevelopment Commission this fall.

The Brundrett project is planned on vacant land between Norwood Furniture and the Farmhouse Restaurant on Gilbert Road in the downtown.

“I like the building,” Vice Chairman Casey Kendel said at the commission’s July 19 study session on the project’s design review. “I think it fits well. I think it matches other buildings in the area.”

The proposed four-story, 28,831-square-foot building would reserve the first floor for a full-service restaurant, bar or cafe, the second and third floors for offices and the fourth floor for the rooftop patio with a portion of the roof enclosed to protect against inclement weather, according to planner Kristen Devine.
