Developers are proposing a senior living apartment project at 205 Middle Sound Loop Road in New Hanover County, according to a community meeting notice.
Residence at Canopy Pointe would be located on about 5 acres with street frontage on Middle Sound Loop Road, adjacent to Living Water Ministries to the west, White Oaks Apartments to the east and The Fields at Wendover neighborhood to the north, the notice states.
A site plan shows a three-story building with 70 units, as well as a computer center on the first floor, a movie room on the second and a multi-purpose room on the third. The plan also shows that the project is expected to include outdoor sitting areas and an exercise room.
"Developed by Blue Ridge Atlantic Community Development, Residence at Canopy Pointe exemplifies the type of mixed-income apartment development that the county is encouraging in our community," according to the notice. "Residence at Canopy Pointe will be nestled into the existing property fabric by preserving as much vegetation as possible, provide buffers to adjacent properties, and employ low impact design techniques for stormwater management."
A meeting on the project is scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 4 at The Covenant Church, 210 Station Road, in Wilmington.
"On behalf of Blue Ridge Atlantic Community Development, McKim & Creed is submitting a request to New Hanover County to rezone the Middle Sound Loop property from R-15 to Conditional Zoning District RMF-M (Residential Multi-Family – Medium Density)," according to the notice, signed by Richard Collier, regional manager and assistant vice president of McKim & Creed.
Collier is chairman of the Wilmington Planning Commission, but the rezoning for Residence at Canopy Pointe will be considered by New Hanover County officials.
Representatives from Blue Ridge Atlantic Community Development, McKim & Creed and the development team will be in attendance at the Feb. 4 meeting, the notice states.
