continued Dannible argued there is a need for senior housing in the area, even though there is an empty senior PDD approved in the town on Northline Road.
“There is still a need for the senior,” he said. “There are reasons that we believe that one’s not been developed. We believe the main reason that one has not taken off is because it’s not located in any proximity to commercial development.
Dannible said this project has the potential to have connections for seniors to be able to walk down to the various commercial properties. The developer said the location is ideal for other reasons, too.
“This is a little closer to sewer and water,” said Bo Mylo of RJ Taylor Builders. “This is a little bit more feasible for us to move forward with this project. There is a market for it.”
Dannible said the plan is for all the residential traffic to come out on Rowland Street.
“This will keep the property separate, therefore avoiding any cut throughs,” he said.
Dannible said there will be very minimal traffic impacts during peak hours.
The units themselves will be between 1,600 to 1,900 square feet with their own garages and will have several upgrades available, including granite countertops and fireplaces. The expected leasing price for a rented unit would be around $1,600 a month and the expected sale price would be around $300,000 to $400,000.
