With an 8-1 vote the Greensboro City Council approved rezoning for a proposed 380-unit apartment community off of Horse Pen Creek Road. The Greensboro News & Record has the story:
The council voted 8-1 in favor of rezoning 21.4 acres for the apartment project that developer Keystone Homes says will cost about $50 million and include up to 380 units. ..
City staff members and Keystone consultants told the council they believe a widened Horse Pen Creek Road can handle additional traffic from the project and required safeguards should protect the environment adequately…
Wallace said the apartment complex would attract “active adult” residents and young professionals drawn by its amenities, nearby commercial district and ready access to nearby highways and the Piedmont Triad International Airport.
Amenities would include a fully equipped chef’s kitchen, a variety of fitness facilities, a children’s game room, a pet spa and one- and two-car garages, he said.
