Landowners seek OK for Duncan Hill Road apartments

Landowners are seeking a rezoning from low density residential to planned residential development to build an 84 unit apartment complex on nine acres of land in the triangle formed by Signal and Duncan Hill roads.

City planners scheduled a neighborhood compatibility meeting for 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15, in the council chambers at City Hall. Bobby Funk, Green Holdings LLC, and North Main Street Properties of Hendersonville, LLC, filed the application for the rezoning.

The property is made up of three parcels containing 8.7 acres and valued on the tax rolls at $423,300. The landowners, Green Holdings and North Main Street Properties, are controlled by the heirs of Pete Green, the longtime residential and commercial developer who died in 2010. Officers and managers are Thomas H. "Ted" Jacobson, Paul Bakke, the Dona B. Green Revocable Trust and the Phillip T. Green Jr. GST Family Trust, according to corporate records.

A site plan shows a community center and seven apartment buildings containing 15 one-bedroom, 48 two-bedroom and 21 three-bedroom units. The proposed development is compatible with the city's comprehensive plan because it meets affordable housing goals, is near shopping, other multifamily developments and workplaces and convenient to Four Seasons Boulevard, a major thoroughfare, Bakke and Funk, of Mills Construction Co. said in the rezoning application.

"This also helps achieve the goal of promoting the orderly development and annexation of Hendersonville's extraterritorial jurisdiction," they said. The development would expand housing availability at affordable rents, they added.

After the neighborhood compatibility meeting, the request would go the city Planning Board and then to the City Council.
