On October 11, the Leon County Commission will consider an item on their agenda designed to “conditionally approve” the Cawthon Multi-Family Residential development and its “development plan application.”
The location of the new development is on Bannerman Road southeast of Glenoak Trail.
The development will be adjacent to a commercial project, which will consist of a Publix shopping complex, being built at the intersection of Bannerman Road and Bull Headley Road.
The development will be a “244-unit multifamily apartment complex” on a “15.9-acre portion” of the zoned area. According to the proposal, the development will consist of 10 buildings, two carriage buildings, a clubhouse with a swimming pool and a bathhouse, seven garage buildings, and a maintenance building.
This multifamily residential development site is part of the overall Cawthon Property project, totaling approximately 180 acres in size.
The applicant, Mesa Capital Partners, LLC, is seeking the development be connected to the City of Tallahassee’s central sanitary sewer and portable water system.
The developers are asking to pay a fee instead of being responsible for sidewalk construction along Bannerman Road as part of the Bannerman Road widening project funded by the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency. If this is approved, the monies paid are set aside in a fund for future sidewalk construction in that neighborhood.
The agenda item for the development is a public hearing item and residents are eligible for offering public comment by going to the Leon County Commission’s website.
