The complex will be located on about 9 acres south of the intersection at Heritage Drive and Pearson Avenue. The land already had the zoning to build an apartment complex, but the applicant looked to modify the development standards. This allows the complex to be built without a screening wall and for increased density without increasing the number of units. The applicant, Casey Gregory, said this remediates an oversight from previous zoning discussions for the project.
Meeting documents stated the complex will tie into the existing character of the neighborhood without the screening wall.
Council approved the request without much discussion.
