The project for an 81-unit apartment complex called Chelsea Square is moving forward in the planning process with the Township of Sylvan.

A public hearing was held at the Township Planning Commission meeting on September 23 on the final site plan for the multi-family residential apartment complex. The developer has received recommended approval.

The final site plan will now need to be submitted to City Council for an official decision.

At the Township Board of Directors meeting on October 5, Sylvan Township Supervisor Kathleen Kennedy said the final site plan had been approved by the Planning Commission and the lawyer was currently working on a development agreement for review by the township board of directors.

There is no timeline for the final board review yet, but Kennedy said she expects it to be an upcoming board meeting of the canton.

According to the township staff report on the project, the site plan provides for 81 units of multi-family apartments at market price. The zoning of this new project will use two plots as a multi-family residence according to a consent judgment filed in December 2016.

The report states that the developer’s description indicates that the project is proposed to be built in a single phase and includes the construction of 17 buildings that will have access from Pielemeir Drive, which is a public road. The development would have public services provided by the Sylvan Township water and sewer system, and would also have an internal private road network unless accepted by the Washtenaw County Road Commission. The apartments will be owned and managed by Group 10 Development.

The development is proposed to be located on 16 acres of land. It is expected that there will be 37,800 square feet of open space while each apartment unit is expected to be approximately 1,300 to 1,500 square feet.
