Brookfield Residents Responding Well to Sutter Creek Apartment Plan
Residents are not opposing the proposed Sutter Creek project but are providing feedback for revisions.
Brookfield residents seem to be responding well to the Sutter Creek apartment proposal, reported Brookfield Now.
The large-scale apartment complex has been proposed for a location that's long been pegged for redevelopment. After three years, a developer is inching closer to constructing a 144-unit upscale apartment and condominium complex at Barker Road and Greenfield Avenue.
The project, titled Sutter Creek, would be built atop a 27-acre contractor yard. The land owners, Richard Walters and Kevin Thompson of BRP Holdings, LLC., initially proposed a 186-unit development in March 2010. They have since trimmed the size of the development.
Over 100,000 cubic yards of fill would be shipped to the site to reclaim the quarry at the contractor yard, and the project would be constructed in three phases. Plans call for 12 condominium units, and 132 apartments. Leases for one to two bedroom units would range from $1,140 a month to $1,771 a month. One-bedroom apartments are roughly 840 square feet, and two-bedroom units would be about 1,352 square feet.
Brookfield Now reported that some Poplar Creek residents are worried that Sutter Creek about storm water drainage issues. Residents also said at the public hearing that they don't want the height of the development to be higher than the properties in the neighborhood.
Some residents also suggested eliminating phase three — 12 owner-occupied condominiums — and instead add a fourth story to the two residential structures.
Developers say the project will add roughly $20 million in property value to the city once all three phases are complete.
A presentation will be made on a revised plan on April 8.
