A Virginia-based developer has plans to bring more than 250 new apartments to nearly 20 acres just off Market Street in Ogden. 

The complex, which site plans refer to as Abberly of Wilmington, was set to go before Wilmington’s Design Adjustment Committee this week but was continued to the committee’s April meeting.

At just over 19 acres, the proposed development site spans four parcels at 7725, 7729, 7731 and 7753 Alexander Road. Developer HHHunt is looking to annex the land, which is located in New Hanover County, into the city of Wilmington and rezone it for high-density multiple-dwelling residential development.

But first, developers are working to secure two waivers to the city’s technical standards. The first requested waiver is to allow for a proposed private driveway that will be longer than the city’s 500-foot maximum length. They’re also looking to waive the city standard that requires complexes with more than 50 units to be within 500 feet of a public road.

“The project property is narrow and deep with public street access on its eastern side of the property, Alexander Road,” developers wrote in their application to the design adjustment committee. “Depth of the property from Alexander Road is approximately 1,500 feet.”

Site plans show the proposed complex would have 253 apartments spread across six four-story buildings. The unit mix would include 103 one-bedroom apartments, 119 two-bedrooms and six three-bedroom units. The complex also would set aside roughly 10% of the units – 25 one-bedrooms – as workforce housing, according to plans. The project also includes a pool and a clubhouse along with 15 garage buildings and 473 parking spaces.

The land being eyed for development currently contains 13 manufactured homes and is owned by three separate individuals, according to property records.

HHHunt is a real estate development firm that builds apartments, homes and planned communities throughout the Southeastern U.S. The company currently has 11 Abberly-branded apartments throughout North Carolina, including complexes in Charlotte, Raleigh and the greater Triangle area.
