PB Bell Companies wants to redevelop land at the southwest corner of Baseline and Cooper Roads in Gilbert into a new 205-unit apartment complex.
The multifamily developer is asking the town of Gilbert to rezone 47.99 acres and to approve a General Plan amendment for 8.63 acres on that parcel to allow for the new apartments.
The property is currently home to a 97,000 square foot retail center and is zoned for commercial uses.
The Gilbert city staff had recommended denying the rezoning but the Gilbert Planning Commission ultimately recommended 5-2 for approval for the application.
The Town Council is scheduled to look at PB Bell’s request on March 24th.
