BACKGROUND ON KENTON PLACE APARTMENTS
Kenton LLC of Huntersville is seeking approval to amend its site plan to allow a 108 unit multi-family residential complex on Lot 2, off West Catawba Ave., near the Palace.
The new three-story building would sit on an empty lot on the north side of Kenton Drive, opposite the site of another potential future three-story building. Plan call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom units. The developer proposes to reserve 1.5 acres of open space in the plan.
The developers held a community meeting on their plans in September.
