The Sherman Planning and Zoning Commission will consider a 156-unit apartment complex adjacent to the Northside on Travis apartments during its regular meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers of City Hall, 220 W. Mulberry St.
The proposed development will include 156 total units divided into 84 one-bedroom units and 72 two-bedroom units to be called The Lofts at Liberty Hill. The apartment complex will feature amenities including a 24-hour fitness center and a luxury swimming pool with a spa.
The developers are asking for exceptions to the facade and parking lots from the board of adjustments. The request also includes a zone change from single family residential to multi-family residential, as well as a site plan approval for the apartments.
The board of adjustments will also consider exceptions to allow a metal building while the commission will consider a specific use permit to allow an auto body repair shop for Sherman Collision Repair, who is seeking to add a 3,600 square-foot building featuring five bays. One resident, Danny Hutchins, has responded to the city’s impact letter stating his opposition to any exceptions for the property.
