The city’s Zoning Commission has approved the rezoning of a strip mall behind Montgomery Plaza for mixed-use development.
The site in the 300 + 400 blocks of Carroll Street is currently home to Michael’s, Dollar Tree, Office Depot, PetSmart + Five Below. It could soon become nearly 600 apartments — a five-story building with 315 units and a seven-story building with 280 units — and 70,000 sqft of new retail space.
Being developed by KIMCO Realty and Kimley-Horn, the site covers almost 18 acres in the West 7th neighborhood. The project has already faced contention from neighbors about the area’s current traffic congestion that they fear will be exacerbated by new development.
The project will be heard at the city council meeting on Tues., Nov. 8.
