Zad Rumayo, creator of Buzz condo project on South Akard, has just filed a zoning change for a planned development at 7530 Grand Avenue— this is the shopping strip at Gaston Avenue near Garland Road directly across the street from Far West night club. According to a zoning-change application filed yesterday, Rumayo is requesting a mix of multi-family residential and non residential uses, with a maximum height of 85 feet and 400 units (if a residential component is developed).

Rumayo has a good reputation as being a smart and creative designer and planner—Back Talk’s own Jeff Siegel is meeting with him this afternoon and will undoubtedly return with an insightful update later today or tomorrow.
