Plans are awaiting the Town Council’s decision and “go ahead” for luxury townhouses to be built at 215 Brazilian Avenue, currently a vacant lot of .75 acres.  Architectural style will be French Chateau.  Plans call for four homes and eight underground parking spaces.  Architect Harold Smith is the designer.

Concerns had developed regarding drainage systems, chimneys imposing on neighbors’ views, and additional tall landscaping to screen the roofline, and the impending owner (purchase is contingent on Town Council approval) has agreed to revise drainage and modify or eliminate chimneys.  A variance needs to allow horizontal overlapping between individual dwelling units and to release owner from having to provide a 20’ wide emergency access to the property’s interiors.  Decision might be made at Town Council’s meeting next month.
