Another high rise planned for Brevard Street?

Uptown could be getting another high-rise tower, this one at the corner of Brevard and Fourth streets, according to real estate records.

Brevard Street Associates, a group of eight investors and corporations, filed preliminary plans in the city’s Accela system on Friday for a 28-story tower on two parcels currently used as surface parking lots (thanks to a reader for tipping me off). A partner with the company couldn’t immediately be reached by phone Friday.

Developers has explored building on the land – next to the SKYE (formerly Park) condominiums – before. In 2006, my predecessor Doug Smith reported on two possible parking decks, along with retail and green space, that were in the works.

“Plans circulating among potential parking tenants and retailers show green space on top of the decks and about 30,000 square feet of shops and restaurants wrapping the sides facing Fourth and Brevard Streets,” he wrote at the time.

Here’s what the latest plans call for. It’s very general right now, but I’ll update as I learn more.

▪ “28 story high rise tower with ground floor retail fronting Brevard Street and a portion of 4th Street.” The plans don’t say what type of tower it would be, but it seems likely it would be residential, because...

▪ There are two amenity decks planned, one on the seventh floor and one on the roof.

▪ Five stories of parking, with access off Fourth Street.

▪ A “pocket park” between the new building and the adjacent church, a historic structure.
