The City of Aurora standards required a complete re-plat for the Foxdale III project based on the re-design and addition of one story to existing two-story condominium buildings. This process could have taken a minimum of one year to complete from the completion of the working drawings for the new building design.
John was able to negotiate a fast-tracked administrative approval for the project using an argument that the parking and unit count did not change and only administrative approval for the third story was required since the stepped-back architecture did not exceed the height limit within the current project approval. The project was started when permits were issued within three months, and the economy supported the project completion. A later start of the project could have doomed its success, as the economy 18 months later was in a down cycle and construciton on similar projects were stopped as sales dwindels due to job losses inthe area.
