I think I just got that you were talking about my hair, lol Pandemic hair is a thing :)
Amin Irving | Ginosko Development

That’s a great question! I think there is a way to accommodate incentives for health care/essential workers.

Unfortunately, the project no longer includes a swimming pool. But the lady in our renderings took up running instead :-)
Carol Morton
56:26
How tall do you imagine the trees will grow to be? What type of trees?
Allen Penniman
57:33
I’m not hearing anything about Black Bottom. What is being done to, at the very least, acknowledge its erasure? Or better yet leverage the CBO process to make reparations?
Anthony Baker
59:00
Will the development have direct access to the I-75/375 entrance ramp off the service drive or will all freeway traffic have to circle the complex and take Rivard to Lafayette?
Anthony Baker
01:00:48
What happens to the Horatio Williams building? Will it eventually become part of this development?
Amin Irving | Ginosko Development
01:01:21
That’s a great point about Black Bottom. I think when we get deeper into the design specifics we will include the history of Black Bottom.
Carol Morton
01:01:26
Will there be on-street parking in front of these buildings?
Sean White
01:02:22
what are you thinking the range of pricing will be on the condos?
Anthony Baker
01:02:48
Will there be any commercial components (retail) in this development?

Are you planning to place good looking trash containers both on the grounds of LP West and also along Rivard and the Service Drive? I sure hope so.
Amin Irving | Ginosko Development
01:05:49
In terms of the condo pricing, there are so many variables that factor into that answer. If I told you a price now, that would probably change in a month. Right now it wouldn’t be fair to give you a one answer fits all response.
SHARON FINCH
01:13:18
Is there a way I can see the slides during this discussion? To refresh my mind on what the project looks like?
Bryan Boyer | Neighborhood Advisory Council
01:15:15
@sharon here’s a link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tz6wv8kg79uriin/LAFAYETTE%20WEST_July%202020%20Design%20Update%20FINAL.pdf?dl=0

SHARON FINCH
01:20:42
You say the parking complies with the zoning; How many spaces does zoning require?
Noah Birmelin | PEA Group
01:21:13
Some of the proposed trees include: Maple, Redbud, Dogwoods, Beach, Birch, Honeylocust, Oak, and Linden.
Matthew Morin | Neighborhood Advisory Council
01:26:10
I agree with Gloria on the color scheme. It feels very stark and very dark. There is certainly black in the design of the Mies buildings, but it is a minority versus a majority in the new condo design.
Suzanne Schultz
01:30:13
What type of roofs will these buildings have?
Carol Morton
01:30:32
Would it be possible to have more greenery rather than carports? There are currently no carports in any of the Lafayette Park housing communities.
Gloria Myers
01:30:40
Are there any developments in the area with carports? If so I'm not familiar with them.
Aaron Goodman | Detroit PDD
01:35:47
Gloria, they I-375 MDOT plants were discussed at the February Annual Meeting, you can view that presentation here: https://detroitmi.gov/sites/detroitmi.localhost/files/2020-03/LAFAYETTE%20WEST_2020%20Annual%20Update%20Presentation.pdf
Sharlene Gage
01:36:51
The proposals get more ugly and crowded with each rework --
Karen Gage | Detroit PDD
01:37:41
Per Section 50-14-34 of the zoning code - 0.75 parking spaces are required per residential unit. 244 parking spaces required, 291 have been provided.
SHARON FINCH
01:39:39
can you put up a picture of the carports and location please?
Bryan Boyer | Neighborhood Advisory Council
01:40:12
Have to go to a zoning meeting that is booked at the same time. Please consider: delete carports and spend more money on trees that improve the streetscape.
Amin Irving | Ginosko Development
01:41:13
I’m okay with deleting the carports, I did want to mention that the the carports were also a recommendation of the condo broker.
Allen Penniman
01:48:43
Thank you for the comment about Black Bottom. This is such a good opportunity, in this moment of national reckoning, to set a an example of how to acknowledge hard histories and heal past traumas. I challenge you to NOT be complicit in the erasure of Black Bottom and its memory
Patrice McKinnon | Neighborhood Advisory Council
01:48:57
Is parking included in the rent or condo prices or will it be a separate charge? It’s a relatively small thing, but can we talk about those address numbers and the so called “pop of color”. How about come classy stainless steel looking silver numbers?
Allen Penniman
01:50:10
I challenge you to reach out to the diaspora of folks that were displaced when the neighborhood was demolished. Ask them what they want. (I’m just a present day neighbor).
Jason Cole
01:50:26
wow Rochester hills thank you Amin for making the change
Patrice McKinnon | Neighborhood Advisory Council
01:52:28
Is Village Green still your intended management company? If so, you need to hear from the tenants at Orleans Place to hear what they think.
Allen Penniman
01:53:08
Talk to Emily Kutl. She’ll hook you up

Gloria Myers
01:56:08
Will there be laundry rooms in all buildings or washer & dryers in each unit of each unit in every building?
SHARON FINCH
01:58:43
This means there will not be one space per apt. This is unrealistic. There will be parking problems.
Julia Schlau | Neighborhood Advisory Council
02:05:31
For the record, it seems to me that Ginosko is providing more than enough parking for an urban setting.
Patrice McKinnon | Neighborhood Advisory Council
02:05:43
How soon will Planning and Ginosko wrap up on the design?
Jason Cole
02:15:04
Thank Amin and Nathan
Matthew Morin | Neighborhood Advisory Council

Thanks everyone for joining and caring!
