There are plans for an eight-story residential tower near the Memorial Auditorium downtown.

D&S Development, which is also building a residential complex at 16th and P Streets, says it wants to construct an 80-unit building at the site of a former auto repair shop.

The ground floor would include retail space, while higher floors would boast multi-level penthouses and there would be a terrace with views of the skyline.

The project needs city approval because the twoer would be taller than 65 feet.

It will go before the planning commission later this month.
