It seems a real estate developer wants to put apartments, townhomes or lofts — about 350 units — near the White Rock DART station.
The site currently is zoned for retail and single family uses.
The developers are requesting to rezone the space for planned development with multi-family uses.
The proposed “planned development district” would allow the redevelopment of the site with multifamily uses and some retail. The site is 20 feet below the existing rail line. The proposed complex would have direct access to the rail platform at the same level as the existing station, according to paperwork filed Jan. 6 with the Dallas Department of Development.
The complex would consist of a maximum 350 units in buildings of varying heights getting shorter as they move away from the intersection. The closest multifamily building would be about 150 feet from the nearest property with a single-family home.
A tentative plan commission hearing is set for March 1.
