Plans progress for building next to Evola Music
Plans for a three-story, mixed-use office building proposed for a vacant parcel of land next to Evola Music, 2184 Telegraph Road, will go before the Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees for final approval following a recommendation from the township's planning commission on Monday, September 16.
The proposed building, 2172 Telegraph, at the southwest corner of Telegraph and Bloomfield Place, will include site improvements and additional parking for Evola Music. The plan is essentially an update to a previous plan that was approved by the township board in 2016 for a standalone parking lot for the music store. The new plan, if approved, would provide additional shared parking and an access agreement between property owners Jim Evola, of JRTM Enterprises, and Kalabat Entity LLC.
The project is to include 8,617 square feet of office space and 5,406 square feet of retail shopping. The exterior of the building will be a blend of brick, dark brown aluminum panels with cast stone accents, ornamental aluminum canopies and glazing. Parking lot lighting will be low profile and may not exceed 20 feet in height, with all lighting to be directed downward.
A traffic study of the proposed site determined the project would have minimal, if any, impact on traffic operations on Telegraph.
The plan must next go before the design review board before the township's board of trustees for final consideration.
