Developer Hamish Marshall’s project, called Pacific Courtyards, was approved in 2008, but never constructed due to the down economy. Because of several proposed changes, such as ground level parking garage, the project requires additional approvals.
The project site sets between Osos and Morro streets across from Grace Church.
Marshall has changed the proposed architecture from a neo-Victorian design to a flat-roofed contemporary.
The city’s Cultural Heritage Committee voiced objections to the design because they say it is inconsistent with the city’s historic preservation guidelines. The city’s Architectural Review Commission will review the project on Dec. 16.
