Commission approves plans for new apartment complex
Dec. 31, 2013 PLYMOUTH EAGLE.
Young professionals, empty-nesters, young couples and others looking for new, high-end residential options in Plymouth will likely have one more choice now that the Plymouth Planning Commission has given approval to Starkweather Station luxury apartments.
The commissioners voted unanimously to allow developers DevMar Development LLC. and Burton-Katzman LLC. to build a 93- unit apartment community along Plymouth Road east of North Holbrook during their regular meeting Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Mark DeMaria, principal for DevMar Development, said he is optimistic that the city commission will see the benefits his project offers their community.
“Plymouth is a great town with so many attractive qualities,” he said. “The restaurants, the shops and the events all offer people a real sense of community. That has great appeal for young professionals, empty-nesters, and young couples, but the type of residential set- ting they seek is in low supply here. They want to live in places with modern amenities, new construction, open spaces and still be part of the city. Starkweather Station offers all of those features.”
Starkweather Station will consist of two, four-story apartment buildings that will be connected to Plymouth’s Old Village through a lush open green space with many large, mature trees, a walking path and a pavilion. This community will offer loft apartments with shared hallways and town-lofts with their own private access. Each will be 800-1,330 square feet and have 10-foot high ceilings, high-end amenities, including wood flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, in-unit washer and dryer, and outdoor patios or balconies, a spokesman said.
The project will now go to the city commission for approval in January. With that approval, the project would be on track for ground breaking in the spring. The project is expected to be completed by 2015.
