That's for the HDRC meeting. I believe the city council still has to approve it. Isn't that right?

I don't believe so. Once you get your Certificate of Appropriateness from the HDRC, you can apply for your building permit. Now, you can always APPEAL the HDRC decision, but (and fortunately I have never had to) I can't remember if it is to the Board of Adjustments, City Manager, or Council.

That said, the application was for CONCEPTUAL approval, not the final, so the team will still need to return to HDRC for another review.

City manager has final say, not council.

So it's likely that we'll still see some building elevations then. That's good news. That first document seemed a little preliminary by only showing some renderings and giving a general overview of it, but fewer details on the technical side of it.

Yes, on a project like this they will typically request conceptual design approval before spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on more detailed structural and MEP plans.

Final HDRC approval will require full plans sufficient for a building permit.

SA Express News- 11/27/19

Jefferson Bank’s new headquarters

Jefferson Bank is planning to build a 12-story tower downtown to house its headquarters. Executives bought 1.7 acres at Broadway and East Grayson last year, kitty-corner to the Credit Human complex.

The land has already been cleared and the bank plans to break ground in the first half of 2020, spokeswoman Lindsay Armstrong said.

Jefferson Bank will continue using its current headquarters on the North Side as a banking center, but executives and lenders will start moving downtown in April 2022, she said.

There is an article on the SA Heron website: www.saheron.com about the Jefferson Headquarters building. Article states building maybe as tall as 15 stories.

That means it could become over 200ft. Woot!

I don’t think it’s getting taller, but we should see new renderings this week showing full block.
