UMOM New Day Centers wants to develop a five-acre parcel at the NEC of 7th Street and Southern Avenue into a new 90-unit affordable senior housing facility. The site is close to the future South Central Light Rail Extension, which runs along Central Ave.
The vacant parcel, which lies within the South Mountain Village, must have a height and density zoning waiver in order for the proposed three-story building to be developed. The applicant, Aday Graff PC, who is representing the owner, United Group, LLC, is requesting this waiver, “…to allow multifamily senior housing with a height waiver for up to 3 stories and 38 feet, and a density waiver for up to the R-3A zoning district standards.”
