How are the multi-family units being proposed different from a traditional apartment complex?

The Land Use Plan’s designation of this area as a Regional Activity Center provides guidance for development and restrictions on any new multi-family units. It states that no new stand-alone multi-family should be developed, and that any new multi-family should be part of a mixed use setting that includes additional uses, activates the pedestrian realm, and incorporates structured and shared parking.

The proposed “District at Sugar Creek” development consists of two Districts; District A and District B, to be developed as a mixed-use project including multi-family, live/work, restaurants, and retail. The proposal includes 387 multi-family units, including a mix of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom; and 15 live/work units, with a structured parking garage. District A also includes approximately 2,376 square feet of additional non-residential space located along the ground floor of the building. District B consists of three buildings proposed to be developed as restaurants and retail. It also includes an outdoor event lawn between the buildings and outdoor dining space to serve the restaurant development.
