Richmond Heights City Council will hear a presentation by I.L.I., LLC on a proposed 203-unit apartment complex at Boland and Dale – as well as public comment on the project – Tuesday (Jan. 19), 7:30 p.m. at The Heights.
The proposed $34 million Boland Place apartment complex is proposed for the present site of the Richmond Heights Church of God in Christ and the vacant A.B. Green School, according to developer Joe Cyr.
Residents at the council’s Jan. 4 meeting expressed concern that the development would clash with the single-family residential character of neighborhood and overburden streets with traffic. Several questioned whether Boland Place would be the type of luxury complex developed by Cyr at other locations or whether covenants, proposed by developer to minimize adverse effects on the neighborhood, would be enforceable.
The public hearing on the proposed apartment complex had been scheduled for the council’s last meeting, but was postponed to this Tuesday at the request of residents who told Mayor Beck the rescheduling would allow more people to attend.
However, about 40 area residents turned out for the early January council meeting anyway; prompting Mayor James Beck and the council to take about 90 minutes of public comment on the project.
The Heights is located at 8001 Dale Ave. The city council meeting will be held in the Argus Room. See the full agenda.
