American Greetings unveiled its plans for the company's new world headquarters at Crocker Park on Monday.
The building is set to be 655,000 square feet, the company said in its announcement. American Greetings headquarters will take up 595,000 square feet of that. The remaining space will be retail.
Plans have not yet been submitted to the planning department, said planning director Bob Parry on Tuesday.
Parry said what needs to be submitted to the planning department in order to get on the planning commission's agenda includes a site plan, elevation drawings, materials list, lighting and landscape plans, parking plan, and, in this case, plans for buffering light/noise.
When will the American Greetings project be on the planning commission agenda? It depends, Parry said.
After the June 4 planning commission meeting, the next meeting is scheduled for July 2. After that, there are no planned meetings until August 27.
To get on the July 2 agenda, plans would have to be submitted in the next two to three weeks, Parry said.
American Greetings says it intends to break ground on the project in early 2013, with the project to be completed by mid-2014.
Even if plans aren't submitted right away, work can still begin at the site. Projects such as removing trees, road work and grading could begin any time.
