League City (Galveston County) —A Houston developer received approval on their rezoning request for a 339-unit apartment complex at the Planning and Zoning Commission’s Tuesday meeting.
The undeveloped 11.19-acre property, Pinnacle Park Apartments, was rezoned from commercial mixed (CM) use to residential multifamily1.2 (RMF 1.2).
The site is located along the south side of Big League Dreams Parkway and along the west side of Brookport Drive in the southern portion of the city.
Houston-based developer John Meador created the special entity 101 League City I-45/646 L.P. to own the land.
Meador is proposing to construct a single three-story building (302,209 square feet) with the apartment units wrapping around a parking garage.
The development will consist of 282 surface parking spaces, 54 personal garage spaces and carport spaces and 205 parking garage spaces.
The building will have two interior courtyards with amenities for the residents including a pavilion, firepit, outdoor grill, game area, pool and a cabana.
The primary entrance of the complex will be off Brookport Drive with a porte-cochere leading up to the leasing office.
The site will maintain a 20-foot buffer yard on the interior lot lines and a 10-foot landscape setback along the street frontages with approximately 200 tree plantings contributing to open space and beautification.
The perimeter building elevation will be highly detailed with an emphasis on high-end stucco and masonry materials in those elevations most visible to public streets, according to documents submitted to the commission that detail an “urban level of appearance of the building and level of finish” for those that can appreciate a Class A lifestyle.
The maximum impervious cover for a RMF-1.2 property is 60%, according to the city’s development standards.
Meador has developed similar projects in the Houston area, among them is the Eclipse and the Domain by Windsor, located at 1755 and 1725 Crescent Plaza Drive.
John Cutrer with CityStreet Residential Partners represented the proposed development to the commission. The Houston based Dannenbaum Engineering and the architect firm Steinberg Dickey, Collaborative, LLP rounded out the project team.
City Council will hold a first reading on the recommended item on Feb. 9 and a second reading on Feb. 23.
