Developer looking to build three apartment buildings in Lakewood area

Development planned on Foothills Boulevard near 15th Avenue

A developer is looking to build three new apartment buildings on Foothills Boulevard near the intersection of 15th Avenue.

Pacific Peace Properties Inc. has applied for an amendment to the city's official community plan and rezoning to allow the development on the area of the Briarwood Place apartments, located at 1330 and 1380 Foothills Blvd. Currently two buildings with 36 apartments each are located on the site.

The developer is seeking to build three additional buildings, with a combined 169 apartment units, according to a report that went before city council on Monday night.

City acting director of planning and development Deanna Wasnik said the city administration supports the infill proposal, but that a traffic study would be needed before the matter comes before city council in a public hearing.

In addition, a report on the ability of city services like water and sewer to handle the extra demand will be required before the changes receive final approval, Wasnik said.

"The services are in the areas, we just need to confirm if they have capacity," she said.

Construction on another new apartment building in the area is nearing completion, on the other side of 15th Avenue.

City council unanimously approve the first and second readings of the OCP change and rezoning bylaw on Monday night. The public will have an opportunity to submit comments on the development, prior to and during the public hearing on the issue.

A date for the public hearing has not been set.
