The developer of WestPort Commons and the (proposed) Landmark at Talbot Park, Art Collins, has provided these additional details about his apartment proposal:
The average rent will be closer to $1200/mo not $1000/mo-contemplated as a class A apartment community with its own amenities.
The mix of apartments will be as follows:
1 Br 80
2 Br 95
3 Br 14
The property is approved for a total of 385 housing units and the current proposal complies will all provisions including setbacks, bldg height etc. of the zoning approval from Nov 2008.
12 condominiums have already been built and 9 have been sold since completion in 2008.
The apartment property is close to 6 acres leaving approximately 7 acres to build the residual 184 housing units over the next few years.
The existing apartments number 200 and it is anticipated that a minimum of 72 will be taken down to accommodate the apartment project leaving 128 remaining until the for-sale markets return.
