Glendale apts development meeting
by Alan Hague
posted: Jun. 14, 2019

Kite Realty Group held a community meeting at the old Glendale Macy's on June 4th. There were around 30 in attendance. Kite showed the latest plans for its proposed 7-building, 267-unit, apartment project. Six of the buildings would be on the overflow parking lot east of Glendale Town Center, across Rural Street. The seventh, and largest, building would be built in the parking lot south of BW3, between the old Macy's and Rural Street. The development would only go as far south as the cinemas. The portion of the lot east of Lowes is owned by Lowes, not by Kite. Any development on that property would be announced by Lowes.

Residents had many questions, including why the old covenants restricting development in this area are being violated. It was explained that those were not traditional covenants on the deed, but zoning restrictions the City placed on the property back in 1969 when pre-Kite Glendale rezoned the east lot.
It was also announced that new retail tenants are in the works for the old Macy's space.
The new buildings are scaled so as to place the taller one near Macy's, with the shorter buildings across Rural, closer to the neighborhood. This scale then steps down to the existing wall between Glendale the neighborhood. Residents were concerned about the lack of any new barrier plantings along the wall. Kite explained that while landscaping, including trees, is planned for the rest of the development, it is felt that the wall and the existing plantings on the west side of that wall are sufficient to screen the new development. After a discussion, Kite agreed that further talks with the residents are needed to work out an acceptable landscaping plan. More public meetings will follow.
