Maplewood Plan and Zoning Monday approved, for recommendation to the city council, a planned unit development for 19 acres south of Sunnen Products, next to the MetroLink station. The vote was 5-0.
The development, by Cozad Commercial Real Estate, includes 58 1-bedroom and 174 2-bedroom apartments ranging in rent from $1,000 to $1,600 per month.
President, G.T. Cozad, said the apartments would be in competition with Hanley Station, in Brentwood and apartments in Clayton and University City. He said they would be targeting professionals.
Some retail would be involved, and Cozad said a Maserati/Alfa Romeo dealership deal is being worked on. He said some hotels have been interested, but that they want to own the property, and it’s owned by Sunnen, which doesn’t want to sell. There will be no light manufacturing. The development will go next to city council.
The committee also approved Wise Warriors personal training to operate at 7403 Manchester Road and the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District’s request for a minor subdivision to expand the Early Childhood Center.
