Plans have been submitted to redevelop the Sky View property in Sylvan Heights. The plan proposes 187 multifamily units at a density of 19.9 units per acre. The existing site currently has approximately 84 multifamily units originally built in 1980. The current owner, Skyview Apartments, L.P., has owned the site since purchasing it in 1998 for $2,700,000. The site is located at 307 Susanna Ct.
If approved, this will mark the 5th major multifamily development in the area. Located a few streets from Charlotte Pike, Sky View will join 4 other developments currently under construction. Here’s the quick rundown.
- What’s Now: Existing Multifamily
- What’s Next: New Multifamily
- Developer: Trent Development Group
- Architect: Smith Gee Studio
- Landscape Ragan Smith
- Capacity: 187 Units / 216 Parking Spaces
There are two main components to the plan which include 52 units spread across five “Manor House” buildings fronting Dakota Avenue and 38th Ave North, and a multifamily building with 135 stacked flats. There are two amenity plazas and a pool deck amenity located at the multifamily building. The plan also includes walking trails, dog park, new landscaping, park seating plaza, and vegetated stormwater detention basins around the site.
The Manor Houses are 2-3 stories tall and include 10-12 units. The semi-colonial style Manor Houses will maintain the character and scale of the neighborhood which primarily consists of single-family homes and duplex-style multifamily developments.
One of the main architectural features of the proposed plan is the “Grand Stair” that falls across the northern side of the property where there is a major elevation change. The stairs align with the adjacent 39th Ave N., and will serve as a community access point. The location of the site at the top of the hill will also serve as an architectural anchor for the neighborhood.
The development is scheduled for the 12/8/2022 Metro Planning Commission meeting.
