A large project with a mix of duplexes, triplexes, and apartment units is planned north of Franklin and east of Black Cat roads in Meridian.
Conger Group applied to build Newkirk Neighborhood that would stretch across 21.41 acres of vacant land.
“We have thoughtfully designed a mix of single-family and multi-family dwellings in this residential community on 21.41 acres that will add to the housing mix within the surrounding neighborhoods and will add diversity to Meridian’s available housing opportunities,” the application said.”…This Project will provide well-appointed homes and apartments on a property that will utilize existing utilities and roads that have been planned for developments in this area.”
The neighborhood that would be located within the Ten Mile Interchange would feature 44 two-story duplexes, 18 three-story triplexes, and 216 apartment units.
“The Newkirk Neighborhood will provide a mix of single-family homes and multi-family apartments. This will achieve a perfect mix of densities for the area and create additional residential housing near the commercial and retail developments near the Ten Mile Interchange,” the application said. “Residents of Newkirk will enjoy a walkable/bikeable community that is within a short distance to shopping, healthcare services, employment opportunities, and regional transportation arteries.”
The amenities for the single-family area of the project include a playground park, pathways, and seating areas. Multi-family amenities include a clubhouse, fitness center, dog park, and pool.
“Pedestrian pathways as well as internal sidewalks that will form a very connected and pedestrian-friendly environment for the homeowners and public.”
All single-family homes within the neighborhood would have a minimum of two-car garages and a driveway that would add two additional spaces. There would also be 38 on-street parking spaces. The Apartments would have a total of 450 parking spaces.
Conger Group is requesting approval of its preliminary plat, development agreement, and annexation and zoning applications from the Meridian Planning and Zoning Commission.
