A proposed zoning map change for a new high-end condominium and commercial development is expected to be heard at the Bullhead City March 5th council meeting.
DJL Enterprises, LLC is requesting a zoning map change from Public Land District to Residential Multiple-Family District and C2 General Commercial District, pursuant to the Mixed-Use Overlay District, in order to develop The Residences at Riverside.
According to a recent article in Mohave Valley Daily News, The City’s Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of the change request on Tuesday, with a vote of 5-0.
The Residences at Riverside will be a 623.2KSF, multi-phased development consisting of 293 high-end residential units and approximately 293KSF of commercial space at full build-out.
The development will sit on approximately 52.5 acres located on the west side of Highway 95 and north of Seventh Street. The property is bound by State Route 95 on the east and the Colorado River on the West. The northern limit is located north of the Airport Drive traffic signal while the southern limit is located at the north end of Malow’s Jet Ski Rental facility on Seventh Street.
The residential portion is currently planned to be developed in four phases. The first phase will consist of a sales office and 68 residential condominium units constructed in two clusters of 32 and 36 units. Each cluster will be 4 stories and will house an underground parking garage and a gated entrance.
According to the applicant’s submittal, “The typical residential units will consist of one, two, and three-bedroom units ranging in size from approximately 1,300SF up to approximately 2,000SF. There will also be some penthouse units that could exceed 2,000SF.”
The commercial portion will also be developed in four phases with the first phase consisting of 25.9KSF of commercial space and 42.3KSF of office space. According to the submittal, “the commercial aspect of the first phase will be developed as demand warrants.”
The submittal goes on to note that “the overall height of the structures will be limited to 60 feet, the maximum allowed in the mixed-use overlay district.”
Access to phase one of the development will be at the Airport Center Drive and Highway 95 Intersection.
The owner anticipates that estimated project build-out will take about five years.
