Tricord wants to build townhouse community on Tidewater Trail
Tricord Cos., which recently scrapped its 5,900-home Summitt Crossing project after a majority of supervisors indicated the proposal was just too big and the proffers were too little, wants to build 150 townhomes on the east side of Tidewater Trail, just south of Arbor Glen.
The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at 7:30 p.m. on May 6, in the Holbert Building on Courthouse Road.
Tricord wants to rezone three pieces of land, 25 total acres, from residential 2 and industrial to residential 8. They plan to call this housing project Mallard Landing. According to the comprehensive plan, which is a guide for growth in the county, this area is targeted for mixed-use projects. The land use map shows this area as "low-density residential."
This project is in Gary Skinner’s Lee Hill District.
