Lomax Properties Plans 288 Unit Apartment Complex

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Lomax Properties Plans 288 Unit Apartment Complex

Lomax Properties is planning up to 288 apartments at North Elm Street and Bell Orchard Drive in north Greensboro.

Through an entity named North Elm Associates LLC, Lomax Properties requested to rezone 9.37 acres at 4108, 4110, 4112 and 4114 Bell Orchard Drive and 3619 N. Elm St. to a planned unit development. The PUD designation allows for a maximum of 288 apartments with a six-foot tall opaque fence between the apartments and adjacent property, and the rezoning request was approved on June 9, said Mike Kirkman with the city’s planning department.

Lomax Properties has the property under option and is “excited about that project,” said Patrick Woods, vice president of development. Other developers have considered that acreage for a variety of uses in the past, Woods said.

“We were fortunate enough to be able to assemble a little bit more land than the previous developers who evaluated it,” he said. “It makes a little more sense with a little bit more land there.”
