According to pre-application materials presented at the meeting, the next phase of development is slated to occur on the Mary’s Woods campus on the undeveloped southwest field. If it comes to fruition as planned, the new development will include four three-story buildings with about 114 units of retirement/independent living and common amenities, including dining and activities. There will be below-grade parking for these buildings.
In addition, plans call for a Village Center, which will include two senior independent living apartment buildings totaling 86 units, along with three separate buildings of service oriented commercial uses, such as a restaurant and a fitness center. There will be above- and below-grade parking for this section of the development.
According to one neighbor present at the meeting:
“Approximately 20 people were in attendance at the meeting. Issues raised included increased traffic, potential loss of dark sky at night due to lighting, higher noise levels due to restaurants offering entertainment, and storm water management. This development will occur between the two existing roads on the campus, leaving the northwest field adjacent to Glenmorrie as it is, at least for the time being. The density could be much higher, but the Sisters (of the Holy Names of Jesu and Mary) have chosen to scale it back.”
