Notice of rezoning request

If zoning is approved, developers plan to turn nine acres of vacant land near Abrams and LBJ into up to 55 townhomes, according to a zoning request.

The 9.5-acre site up for rezoning is located behind an office park that houses Catholic Charities of Dallas and Chase Bank — about a half mile southwest from Richland College (the college is in the neighborhood on the other side of the trees in the below photo) — and is located off an easement that connects the LBJ Freeway frontage road and Forest Lane.

Trees and a creek now occupy the property that could become townhomes

A creek crosses the site along its eastern boundary, and the land contains hundreds of trees.

The property is zoned a NO(A) district (Neighborhood Office), meaning only office buildings can be built there.

But a potential buyer has hired Masterplan Consulting, who filed the below-linked zoning change application for a planned development based on a TH-1(A), which means Townhouse Residential—more specifically, the request seeks zoning that allows “55 lots for single family use.”

Here is a link to the application. I will post more once I learn more.
