A new apartment complex is headed for Center Ridge Road.

The planning commission granted preliminary approval Nov. 16 to The Krueger Group’s proposed four-story building that will hold 54 units. The planning commission waived three zoning requirements, granting three variances for a fence along the property’s south side, reducing the number of parking spaces and interior storage requirements.

The development will need final approval from the architecture board of review next.

The units are a mix of one and two bedrooms, with a majority of the units offering terraces. The 80,000 square foot building will also feature an amenity room, with an exterior courtyard and walking trail on the 1.4-acre site.

The Krueger Group’s proposed apartment complex at 22655 Center Ridge Road had faced pushback and concerns from surrounding neighbors.

The backlash mostly came from Riviera West Condominium residents, which was built in 1969 and features 1-3 bedroom units. Residents raised concerns to the commission in October about the construction itself, regarding heavy vehicles, noise and sewer impact. They also asked for privacy fencing around the complex to reduce noise and light pollution.

Since the October meeting the developers have met with the residents and neighbors to discuss their concerns.

Then at the last commission meeting, developers said that the meeting with condo residents and neighbors had gone well and they had addressed their concerns, including a tree near the back of the property that they wanted to remain untouched.
