The City Commission approved the HERE Apartment Complex parking proposal on Tuesday.
The proposal partners HERE with KU Endowment to expand a parking lot at 11th and Illinois. KU Endowment will own the lot and lease it to HERE Apartments with the restriction of the lot being vacated 10 days a year to accommodate game day parking for football.
Despite opening in August, the HERE complex has been unable to rent out nearly 11 percent of their units because it lacked the available parking required by city zoning codes. The new lot will add 68 available spots for the complex.
Additionally, the project will realign Fambrough Drive into a four way stop at 11th and Mississippi.
