The property is owned by Dan A. Hughes and consists of 7.7429 acres of land.
City Building Inspector Lanny Holland reported last Wednesday that the development will be a boon for Bee County residents who want above average and convenient housing.
Phase one of the three-phase project will include the construction of 24 townhouse units. Once the other two phases are completed, the complex will have 120 units.
The units will have covered, one-car parking areas with three bedrooms, a dining room, living room, kitchen, two bathrooms, utility room for washers and dryers and a patio or balcony, depending on which floor the unit is located.
The exterior of the buildings will be stucco with stone and wood trim and they will have Spanish tile roofs.
Holland said a permit will not be issued until “all the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed,” but now that the zoning issue has been taken care of, the design concepts can be focused on.
Those concepts include storm water drainage and entrances and exits, among other things.
“I expect the first of next week, we’ll know when a permit can be issued,” Holland said.
He did not yet have an estimate on what the cost of construction would be for the first phase of the project, when construction would begin and how long it would take to complete that first phase.
He said that information would become available once the developer takes out a building permit for the project.
