A developer wants to build residences at 7171 Forest Lane.

A developer has requested a zoning change to replace a commercial property on Forest Lane with 208 villas, condos and townhomes.

Centurion American, the prospective buyer, wants to replace the office spaces at 7171 Forest Lane with multifamily units. The nearly 20-acre property, which is surrounded by single-family residences, limits commercial buildings to a height of 120 feet. With the amended planned development district (PD 381), new housing would be limited to a height of 36 feet with the exception of the condo structures, which would be limited to 70 feet tall.

There would be 108 front-loaded villas, 48 rear-loaded townhomes and 52 condos. Both the villas and the townhomes would include two-car garages, while the condos would be built within two four-story structures on top of a parking garage.

The project calls for the creation of a homeowner’s association that would “create the individual units for sale and address common area and amenity maintenance.”

According to the application, Centurion American is working with the neighbors to create private deed restrictions to address issues such as access, security and maintenance.
