New residential development coming to former Mark Center Hilton site

After some zoning changes at the Mark Center Hilton last year, a developer is hoping to build a new 367-unit residential building on the site (5000 Seminary Road).

Applicant Mark Center Residential, LLC — aka The Requity Group — has submitted a development special use permit (DSUP) application to build the new multifamily building called The Rutherford on a recently subdivided 4.5 acre lot in the Beauregard Small Area Plan.

The development falls within the density limits laid out in that lot, but the applicant is seeking a DSUP for a parking prediction, a penthouse that will exceed a 15′ height limit, and a few other requests.

“The project is consistent with the applicable Beauregard Small Area Plan guidelines including many urban design and architectural guidelines, one level of underground parking, and high quality open spaces, streetscapes, and landscaping,” the DSUP application said. The proposed plan includes frontage improvements facilitating 4 bus bays directly across from the existing transit center on Mark Center Ave. The Applicant also will provide on-site affordable housing.”

The DSUP is up for review at the Tuesday, May 2, meeting of the Planning Commission.
