Another new mixed-use building could see the light of day on West College Avenue in Ferguson Township.

A seven-story, 75-foot-tall commercial and residential building with 107 apartments has been proposed for 1004 and 1006 W. College Ave., according to a preliminary land use plan submitted to the township Monday.

Gwin Dobson & Foreman Engineers submitted the plan on behalf of State College-based developer Highland Holding Group, which could not immediately be reached for comment.

The new building would be located near the intersection of West College Avenue and South Butz Street, one block from where the six-story student apartment and shopping complex Aspen West End is currently under construction.

This would involve the demolition of the old WTAJ and Nittany Property Management buildings, but does not include the Far Corners Asian Market property on the corner of West College Avenue and South Osmond Street.

The plans show two levels of underground parking with 159 spaces. It would also have 166 short-term and long-term bicycle spaces.

The first floor plan includes 10,810 square feet of retail space, along with a 4,706 square foot arcade and four outdoor seating areas facing College Avenue.

A mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments are planned from the second to the seventh floor. The second floor also includes a residents’ amenity deck with a club room, swimming pool, and two hot tubs.

Exterior materials include limestone, brick, and black and gray precast facade systems.

The plan is currently being reviewed by city staff. It will have to pass the Ferguson Township Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors before construction can go ahead.
