The request is consistent with the recommendations of the Plan, and includes a commitment to a site plan which incorporates the provision of street trees and the removal of the existing curb cut along Cleveland Avenue to improve the pedestrian experience for this site. Additionally, the proposal includes a high level of site and architectural design which is compatible with the recommendations of the C2P2 Design Guidelines.
