Gordon Beal is seeking approval from Sackville town council to build an apartment building, reports Sackville Tribune Post.
The Sackville town council will once again consider a request by the company to rezone a portion of the former SGCI property where it plans to construct an apartment building.
This will be Gordon Beal’s second attempt at rezoning a parcel of land at the rear of the site at 131 Main Street from Residential Historic Commercial to Urban Residential 3 (R3) to allow for construction of a multi-unit residential building.
The company’s previous rezoning request back in 2010 was denied, with town council citing the design of the proposed building as the main reason behind the rejection. The initial building, which was said to be targeted toward professionals and seniors, featured two storeys that would have included about a dozen two-bedroom apartment-style units.
The new development is a proposed three-storey, 19-unit building.
A public hearing for the rezoning request is set for Nov. 12 during council’s regular meeting.
