By March 2, 2022Site plan

A site plan for a large apartment development next to Wildwood’s Millennium Park was approved by Special Magistrate Lindsay CT Holt with conditions at a Tuesday meeting of the Wildwood Planning and Zoning Board.

The site plan for the initial phase of the project calls for 278 apartments, 10 carriage houses and 42 townhouses on approximately 22 acres.

The plan is part of a $110 million mixed-use development proposed a year ago by Blount Development Group of Wildwood and Chance Wildwood, a Delaware company. The entire development comprises 320 one- to three-bedroom apartments with no age limit, 150 self-catering senior apartments and 100,000 square feet of medical and office space.

Holt said the issues need to be resolved before the site plan is approved by the city commission. They include easements for connections to access roads and easements for the construction of retention basins.

Apartments should include a mix of townhouses, duplexes, carriage houses and garden-style units. A resort-style pool, fitness center, clubhouse, outdoor barbecue grills, and walking paths are among the planned amenities.

The site plan shows apartment buildings arranged in a square around a central area with parking and landscaping. A dog park and dog wash can be found at the northwest corner of the site and several bike racks are marked.

The project’s location near the center of Wildwood means that tenants will have easy access to the Wildwood Community Center, Millennium Park and Brownwood’s shops and restaurants. Children can cycle or walk to school or walk to school.
