A new rezoning request to construct apartments is proposing 154 units in Fairview. The property is located at the intersection of West Village Parkway and Bowden Road.
KCG Development, LLC of Indianapolis, IN has submitted a rezoning request from RA (residential agricultural) to MU (mixed use) for 10.29 +/- acres. The property is designated for mixed use development on the future land use map.
The 154 units result in a net density of 15.9 units per acre. The comprehensive land use plan caps mixed use developments at sixteen net units per acre.
The proposed units include 36 one-bedroom units, 76 two-bedroom units, and 42 three-bedroom units. The property is attendance zoned for Fairview Elementary, Austin Road Middle, and Stockbridge High School.
Planning staff have recommended approval of the rezoning with twelve conditions. The requirements of the highway corridor overlay district will also apply.
The zoning advisory board considered the request on Thursday, January 9, and recommended denial of the project. The rezoning request will be presented to the board of commissioners at a later date for a final decision.
Nearby senior apartments approved in April 2018
The subject property is located approximately one half-mile from an age-restricted apartment complex approved in April 2018. That project, planning 112 units on 7.1 +/- acres, was originally denied in 2017 but reprimanded back to the BOC via legal action.
The adjacent Fairview Corners development broke ground in 2013. An urgent care facility opened onsite in 2017 and Piedmont Physicians is planning this year to open a new office next door.
