Approximately 9.44 acres of the Prescott Valley Entertainment District is scheduled to have a different zoning designation starting in late September, which will allow for the construction of new apartment buildings.
The zoning map change, requested by Fain Signature Group, switched those 9.44 acres in the town center from Commercial; General Sales and Services to Residential; Residential and Services – Planned Area Development, said Town Planner Carmen Ogden.
The change comes after the Town Council and Planning and Zoning Commission held a joint work study in January of 2014 to discuss an amendment to the general plan that would allow for a high rise residential apartment complex of about 214 units on that parcel of land, which is on the southeast corner of Main Street and Florentine Road, she said.
The preliminary development plan for the complex, called the Talking Glass Apartments, consists of 14 apartment buildings with 214 units, 393 parking spaces, 15 of which are designated for handicapped and a clubhouse which features a conference room, leasing area, maintenance room, theater, fitness and multipurpose room, second floor game room and rooftop patio, Ogden said. Further, accessory buildings include ramadas, a pool area, cabana, pool equipment enclosure, refuse structures and a dog park in the center of the complex, she said.
