A new apartment development has been proposed south of the metro.
The Cassgram reports Keeler Properties LLC brought its initial ideas for what eventually could be a complex of 52 apartments with some office spaces before the Plattsmouth City Council. “Keeler Proprties will seek local incentive funds to help finance the project,” wrote Plattsmouth City Administrator Erv Portis to the city council
The council’s approval of the memorandum of understanding does not commit the city to anything at this point but it does spell out the timeline and the process for Keeler to follow.
There will have be to a zoning change on the property in the vicinity of First Avenue and Highway 75 for the project to go forward which means reviews and hearings with the Plattsmouth Planning Commission before it comes back to council.
The project planners are proposing the use of tax increment financing and a grant from Community Development Block Grant Housing Reuse Funds which also require local government approval.
There would be several phases to the full project with the first phase consisting of a conversion of the Hidden Treasures building into a residential facility, building one additional apartment building and an office building.
The “Ridgeview” project now goes into the engineering and architectural stages.
