Last spring, W.C. Smith received approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment to redevelop the former Sanford Capital-owned Terrace Manor site in Randle Heights. Now, the developer is going a little bigger.

In a quest for more height and more density, W.C. Smith filed a planned unit development (PUD) application yesterday to replace the 12 vacant buildings at 2270-2272 and 2276 Savannah Street SE and 3341-3353 23rd Street SE (map), which house a total of 61 units, with a 130-unit building. All of the apartments will be affordable to households earning up to 60 percent of median family income.

Although the unit count has changed negligibly (123-133 units were previously proposed, including 11 three bedrooms), there will now be 65 one bedrooms (instead of 78) and 54 two bedrooms (instead of 39); the two bedrooms will also have larger footprints.

The Stoiber + Associates designed development will also include 60 vehicular and 40 long term bicycle spaces in a below grade garage; a fitness room and a club room are among the amenities.

The Zoning Commission has not yet scheduled a hearing.
