Rezoning request - 120 and 116 Hearthstone Dr.

Post Date:11/17/2017 2:54 PM

RZN17-0008 Request to rezone 3.729 acres from RM-48 (Medium Density Multiunit Residential) to PR (Planned Residential) at 120 and 116 Hearthstone Dr. (Tax Parcels 226-(14)-5 & 226-(A)-307) by Mike Beck on behalf of Hearthstone LLC (owner). 

The Blacksburg Planning and Building Department has received a request to rezone approximately 3.729 acres from RM-48 to PR at 120 and 116 Hearthstone Dr., which is the existing Hearthstone Apartments and one additional property, respectively. The redevelopment entails the demolition of one apartment building and a single-family residential structure, and construction of one building containing residential units and structured parking and a new multi-story apartment building. The applicant seeks the rezone order to allow a higher Floor-to-Area Ratio than what is permitted under the existing RM-48 Zoning District. The total build-out will consist of 154 bedrooms (41 br/ac), which is less than the allowable 180 bedrooms (48 br/ac) under the existing RM-48 zoning. The proposed request does not increase the allowable density under the Future Land Use Designation. 

The following meetings have been scheduled to discuss this project:  

Neighborhood Meeting: Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017, 5:30 p.m. in the Blacksburg Motor Company Building Production Room at 400 S. Main St.

Planning Commission Public Hearing: Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018, 7:30 p.m. in the Roger E. Hedgepeth Chambers of the Blacksburg Municipal Building at 300 S. Main St.

Town Council Public Hearing: TBD The Town Council will schedule the public hearing after the Planning Commission makes a recommendation to Council.  Please visit the Hearthstone PRD page for updated schedules.
