The controversial apartment complex proposed for Lake Miriam Drive near South Florida Avenue would have 33 fewer units and no four-story buildings, under an updated plan submitted by its developer. The new plans from Preferred Apartments Community call for 211 units instead of 244 and an increase in parking to 368 from 356, or 1.75 spaces per apartment, The Ledger reports. There’s no word yet on when the revised plan will be considered by the City Commission.

  1. Infrastructure should have been put in place first. I live east of Cleveland Heights Blvd/ Scott Lake Road, and I’m in the city but still on a septic tank. Why?

  2. This complex is still not compatible and traffic projections and parking spaces data is laughable. This will affect several neighborhoods not just those across street. No mention of Lake Miriam Circle neighborhood of 30 homes which is ALREADY held hostage by traffic..I have doubts as to how in tune developer is with Lakeland and thus the same question is to city staff..this project is laughable city should put an end to this farce.
