Leesburg city commissioners this week gave the green light to a workforce apartment complex.
The apartment complex will be located south of Park Holland Road and east of Picciola Road.
The land the apartments are slated to occupy had been zoned for Planned Unit Development and R-2 medium density residential. The change to high density will allow for the construction of a total of 134 apartments to be located in six three-story buildings.
The original request by the developer, PMF Leesburg, Michigan LLC of Winter Park called for the construction of 144 apartments, but the city required an entrance onto Park Holland Road as the exit onto Picciola Road, will be restricted to a right turn only out of the complex.
The apartment complex will be erected on the eight-acre parcel. The development will include one-bedroom apartments which must be at least 800 square feet, two-bedroom apartments which must be at least 1,000 square feet and three-bedroom apartments of at least 1,200 square feet. Thirty-five percent of the property will be open spaced and will include two recreational structures.
