Public Information Meeting

Edera at Coconut Point

coconut-point-holdingsRepresentatives for Edera at Coconut Point gave a presentation regarding their proposal to build 200 multi-family apartments on 6.62 acres on the east side of Via Coconut Point, just south of Williams Road.

The apartments would be situated in four buildings around the perimeter of the site and would include three stories over parking.  Apartments would range from studio, 1-, 2- and 3-bedrooms, and rentals would range from $1100 to $1900 monthly with an annual lease.  They also plan to include an amenity center and pool.  Target renters would be working professionals and active adults.  (Presentation)

Seven members of the public spoke of their concerns about traffic due to the single access to this site and proximity to the roundabout and Rapallo community, height of the buildings, and lack of open space between the buildings.

Since this was a Public Information Meeting, the Board took no action.
