Dave Spence of Good Space says these drawings are not exactly what the partners have in mind, although they do show the appropriate architecture style and density. They apartments will include xeriscaping, cycling amenities, and front patios that connect with the street, he says. Along with Spence and Randy Primrose of Magnolia, architect Don Wilder, who is designing the buildings, also will be a partner in the project.
The developers are seeking variances for the project, which is tentatively called Magnolia on Bishop.
The variances they’re seeking include permission to create alley-entry parking and a “green wall” of chain-link fence with vines to separate the parking lot from the alley, rather than a solid fence.
The project goes before the board of adjustment next month.
