Last week a reader asked about the plans for the McMillan Sand Filtration Site. Thanks to the folks at Envision McMillan for sending these awesome renderings of the planned McMillan Development. I’m told if all goes well “We are hoping to get shovels in the ground by summer 2014 and deliver the first buildings in 2016.”

They write on their website:

“Earlier this month, VMP submitted revised plans for McMillan that address the remaining concerns raised by the Historic Preservation Review Board at the June hearing. The Historic Preservation Officer has posted their report on the new designs and it’s pretty fabulous news.

Key highlights include the following direct quotes:

“(T)he latest version of the master plan represents a significant improvement over previous versions and now retains the significant above-grade topographical, architectural and engineering features that were identified by the Board as the most important.”

“The revised master plan would retain significant character-defining features of the landmark sufficient to convey its historic character.”

The report recommends, specifically, that the Board “find the concept designs to represent an architecturally coordinated and cohesive approach that specifically relates to the character of the McMillan site.”

Read the entire report here.

If you would like to come support the project at the hearing, please let me know– email me at mcmsalon(at)gmail.com. We’d love to see you at HPRB, but if you miss that, please be sure to join us at the Open House on November 16th.”
