A $65 million upscale apartment complex planned to overlook the Trinity River at Northside Drive awaits possible rezoning approval at the April 16 Fort Worth City Council meeting.


Pre-council begins at 8:30 a.m., with the regular meeting starting at 10 a.m. at City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St.


Results of a traffic study led the council to table action at its April 2 regular meeting. Savant Group Inc. conducted the study to determine whether a site featuring 500 apartments, as well as area roadways, can handle anticipated traffic volume.


Legend Bank owns the 15-acre property along Northside Drive near Interstate 35N. Plans for the tentatively titled Northside Apartments call for two phases: the first featuring 300 apartments and five stories, with parking at ground level. Phase two would feature 200 units and four stories, also with parking on the ground level, as well as surface parking.


With council approval, the property would be rezoned from planned development specific use to planned development with high-density multifamily designation.
