The project now calls for 81 apartments. Not too long ago it was 45. The developer, William Jordan, has requested a Density Bonus, which is a state law and part of the Clayton municipal code (CMC Section 17.90), providing developers with a 35% increase in base density, hence the 81 units. This is contingent upon the provision of 11 percent of the units being affordable to households designated as very low income (7 units for this project). This Density Bonus law requires cities to grant incentives and concessions, such as parking reductions and reductions in development standards. This means each unit will have one parking spot per unit, and available guest and commercial parking can be reduced. The reduction in development standards could possibly mean cheaper and less aesthetics, smaller off-set distances from the street and height variances.
This sounds a lot like the Fulcrum project, except without the commercial and assisted-living component. Keep in mind, this is 81 high-density apartments. Perfect for the city’s parolee housing plan. It’s slated as senior housing, which is for age 55+, and up to 20% of co-inhabitants can be less than 55. This project was approved back in November, so construction could commence any day depending on completion of environmental impacts, other permitting and remaining public hearing requirements.

The developer has resubmitted revised plans, and those should be up on the City’s website in the next week or two.
