ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) – The Rockingham County Planning Commission will consider several projects on Tuesday evening, including the expansion of a luxury student housing complex.
The proposal comes from the owner of the Altitude at Stone Port apartment complex, who hopes to add a number of single and two-bedroom units.
“They are using the vacant lot that joins the existing Altitude one they are calling, to add an additional 102 units, so it will be a free stand-alone building with all parking in the back,” the county community development director said. from Rockingham. Rhonda Cooper.
Although the complex is mostly student accommodation, the new apartments could change that if approved.
“These will be attractive not only to students but also to probably young professionals, perhaps empty nesters, we think it could be attractive to people working in the hospital as well,” Cooper said.
The commission will also consider an application to expand and change the zoning of Mulligan’s Golf Center on Carpenter Lane in Harrisonburg.
“They’re expanding their pro shop and they’re expanding the food service area, so with that comes the addition of parking spaces and so on,” Cooper said.
The planning committee meeting began at 6.30am Tuesday evening.
