TRAVELERS REST, S.C. — A Charlotte developer is working with the owner of a Poinsett Highway property owner, seeking to rezone the parcel to build a senior apartment complex on the 1.5-acre tract.
Located at the intersection of Tubbs Mountain Road, the C-2 Commercial rezoning to R-M Multifamily Residential request was recommended for approval by the Travelers Rest Planning Commission on Dec. 30. It will now require two readings and affirmative votes by city council for the ordinance to pass. The first reading takes place at the Jan. 21 council meeting.
Based on a preliminary drawing presented at the commission meeting, the complex would consist of an estimated minimum of 48 "elderly" units in a total of two buildings. The drawing illustrates an estimated 34 parking spaces. (Updated - See above.)
