Emergency tape block off an condominium building that was destroyed in a fire in late December. Owners for the property are requesting permits and zoning to rebuild the lost units.

Owners of a Sherman condominium development are looking to rebuild following a fire in late 2019.

C&G Properties, owner of the Creekside Condominiums, is expected to request permission from the Sherman Planning and Zoning Commission to build two new building to replace units that were lost in the December Blaze. The commission is expected to consider this when it meets at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Sherman City Hall.

The owners of the property, located at 1225 Park Place, would like to build a three-story, 12,600 square-foot building that will feature about 700 square-feet of space per unit. A second, two-story building will also be requested. In total, this will add 30 units to the complex.

The land being used for the project is currently zoned one-family residential district and the city’s master plan designation lists it as a natural area that is undeveloped.

Firefighters were called to the Creekside Condominiums shortly after 11 p.m. on Dec. 20 on reports of a possible fire.

The fire was extinguished within a half hour, but multiple units were destroyed or damaged in the blaze. No injuries were reported at the time.

In other matters, the commission will return to previous business when it reconsiders a request to build three duplexes at 1201, 1203 and 1205 S. First Street. The commission previously considered this request by Tobar Properties in May, but tabled the request to give the applicant time to create alternative parking plans for the site.
