NOTA opposes apartment plan for University Ave. 

The neighborhood association for the Neighborhood of the Arts has released the results of a survey conducted on a proposed apartment building on University Avenue. NOTA has also come out against the Morgan Management proposal, but says in the survey report that the association would be open to working with Morgan to find a more appropriate site in the neighborhood.

Morgan proposes removing a veterans clubhouse at 933 University in the East Avenue Preservation District, and replacing it with a 102-unit apartment building. A new veterans clubhouse would be built behind the apartment complex.

An alternative plan for the property, proposed by the George Eastman House, calls for keeping and renovating the Monroe Voiture building and creating gardens, a sculpture area, and parking lot. The property is adjacent to the museum campus.

NOTA opposes the Morgan plan because the size and scale are incongruent with the preservation district, the survey says.

NOTA received 95 valid responses to its survey. About 62 percent of the participants were NOTA residents, and the rest include business owners, former residents, and visitors.

Approximately 43 percent of participants said the Morgan proposal would be more suited to another site. About 22 percent said the proposal is "jarring to the senses," while about 20 percent describe the plan as a "nice change up."

The survey results are below.

The arts community comes fully alive again after a relatively slow spell. read more ...
