Background Information: The rezoning seeks to change the zoning on the property at 400 and 410 Glenwood Avenue (between North and Johnson Streets) (see site map) from 7 stories to 40 stories.  This property includes the historic Creamery Building. 
 
The application states that the rezoning “seeks to preserve the Pine State Creamery and adapt the remainder of the site into a taller, mixed use development.”  A Certificate of Appropriateness has been approved by the Raleigh Historic Development Commission that proposes height and massing on the historic property limited to 20 stories.  No plans have been submitted for the property located at 400 Glenwood Avenue which is not designated as “historic” (see site plan). Thus, the proposed zoning amendment would allow up to a 40-story building on the parcel at the corner of Glenwood Avenue and North Street.

Your input will help the GSNC provide a thorough report to the Planning Commission and City Council of Glenwood South’s attitudes, concerns and hopes for this area of development on Glenwood Avenue and adjacent areas in our neighborhood.
