Sure enough the rezoning signs are up and, better yet, potential developer David Weekly Homes (who filed for rezoning via consultants at Baldwin Planning), according to a zoning change application and Land Use Statement, deals in the type of real estate many Lake Highlands-ites crave: single-family homes.
The property formerly was part of an apartment/condo development that went from nice to bad to abandoned and thus a home to squatters and wild animals in the early 2000s.
The apartments eventually were razed to make room for the far preferable Churchill Estates. Churchill, luxury living for seniors, occupies all but about seven acres of that old Northwest Terrace apartments land.
That leftover dirt has been for sale until recently. According to rezoning applications, the developers ask for allowance to build both single-family attached and single-family detached units for a total of about 85 units with a maximum height of 36 feet.
The rezoning hearing will take place sometime next month. We will keep you posted.
