Ask Bungalower: What’s the story behind this development off Hourglass?

” Is this something the Bungalower might be interested in looking into? We’re not happy that they want cut down some gorgeous oak trees …”

Plans are in the works to build a three-story, three bedroom apartments/condos on what is referred to as the Carse property at Henderson and Bumby. The property will likely feature roughly 34 multi-family units and 7,500 SF of commercial space if they stick with their current plans, but alternatives exist, as we share below.

EXAMPLE OF RESIDENTIAL UNITS SUBMITTED BY DEVELOPER

A public hearing will be held on April 18 at 9 a.m. regarding the rezoning of the Carse property.

The applicant is currently in the process applying to change the Future Land Use Map to allow for their planned development from Commercial and Low-Medium Density Residential to Planned Development-Commercial/Medium Residential. Since it is the early stages, the applicant is still working to try to find a developer, or potentially sell to a developer.

Other alternatives for the project include developing a mix of 28 multi-family townhome units on the western portion of the site and six live-work units on the eastern portion of the site adjacent to Bumby Avenue. The live-work units would consist of up 7,500 square feet of commercial and professional office uses on the first floor and multi-family dwelling units on the second floor.

At a previous community meeting held on January 28, the applicant presented some future vision treatments for the property which you can see below.

Nothing is set in stone at this point and they are in the very early stages of simply changing the future land use. After that, they would need to submit a Planned Development to the County.

It must be noted however that in all of the attached plans, the trees in question seem to be untouched.

OPTION 2 – LIVE WORK UNITS ALONG BUMBY WITH RESIDENTIAL BEHIND
OPTION 3 RETAIL IN THE BACK, PARTY OUT FRONT
OPTION 4 – DEVELOP BACK PARCEL
