Lennar Multifamily Communities wants to build a mixed-use development of apartments and retail on Garland Road near Buckner.
The company, a subsidiary of Miami-based homebuilder Lennar Corp., is requesting a zoning change for the two lots between Fire Station No. 31 and Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, formerly Doctor’s Hospital.
While Lennar’s zoning-change application requests a new planned development district “to allow for multifamily residential and retail,” it doesn’t specify what kind of density they’re seeking. How many stories, how many apartments and how much retail space they’ll be requesting remains to be seen.
A representative from Lennar, Todd Cook, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
This would be the first new apartment complex on that part of Garland Road since the housing bust.
Lennar in 2015 set up a $1.1-billion fund to build and hold apartments in as many as 25 major U.S. Markets, according to the Wall Street Journal.
