A land disturbance permit application was filed on Monday for the construction of 16 townhomes at 183 Moreland Ave. in the Reynoldstown neighborhood, according to city records. The developer behind the project is Proxima Development, a rezoning application on file with the city shows.
The roughly half-acre site currently holds a vacant church building and parking lot at the northwestern corner of Moreland Avenue and Arkwright Place. The property was rezoned from MRC-1-C to MRC-2 in September after Proxima Development and project applicant McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture submitted the rezoning application and plans for the project in June.
“The current property is zoned MRC-1-C with a condition that it can only be used as an antique shop,” the application reads. “The current zoning severely limits the economic viability of the site, which is why it is currently vacant and not benefiting the residents or businesses in the neighborhood.”
Named the 183 Moreland Townhomes, units will sale for an expected average price of $400,000, plans show. The buildings will rise to a maximum height of about 40 feet, with plans calling for 34 parking spaces.
Proxima Development is also the developer behind a 60-unit Kirkwood condo project as part of the larger Pratt Pullman District.
