216-unit complex moves forward in Great Falls
The Great Falls planning board and zoning commission voted to recommend approval of a 216-unit apartment complex planned for the corner of Division Road and Smelter Avenue Northwest.
The 9-acre parcel is in the county and will require annexation into the city limits. The developer has requested R-6 multi-family, high-density zoning.
The board voted to recommend both of those actions, with the conditions of approval from city staff, which include sidewalk installation, pedestrian crossing, public water mains including fire hydrants and sanitary sewer on the site.
The project will next go to the City Commission for final approval in June.
Farran Realty Partners are developing the apartments and also developed the Talus Apartments in Great Falls. Construction on phase two of Talus is scheduled to begin in July.
The west side apartment complex will include nine 24-unit buildings, plus a clubhouse with a fitness center, pool and community space. The current plan include 319 surface parking spaced and 64 carports for a total of 383 parking spaces. Staff recommended that bike parking be included in the project.
TD&H Engineering completed a traffic study as part of the annexation and zoning application and found that the complex would generate an average of 6.65 trips per occupied dwelling unit on a weekday.
The west side complex will have a more modern design aimed at young professionals, Jim McLeod of Farran told the Tribune earlier this month.
Brad Livingston, head of the Great Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, and Kelley Aline, director of development for Great Falls Development Authority, both spoke in support of the project.
