A plan to build 49 units of high-end townhouse in Hendersonville is proposed on a property where there is also interest in building a parking lot, according to the landowner.
Nearwater Place is the working name of the development on just over six acres at 1090 W. Main Street. The site is located at the northeast corner of West Main and the State Route 386 interchange.
Lynn Ealey is part of the family that owns the land on which Nearwater Place would be built.
The plan includes larger townhouse units that will have floor plans ranging from 2,000 to 2,400 square feet.
Back garages with carriage-style doors, a gated entrance, private cobblestone streets, community outdoor living space and a community dog park are part of the plans for Nearwater Place, Ealey said.
“A bigger, more stylish townhouse (that’s what’s included in the plans),” Ealey said.
It is not certain whether the townhouses will be rented or sold, Ealey said. If they are sold, he expects the cost to be over $ 400,000 per unit, he said.
Ealey also has an offer on the property from a buyer interested in putting it in a parking lot, he said.
The site is immediately west of a Waffle House.
The discussion about Nearwater Place at the Planning Commission meeting included concerns about access, which Ealey acknowledged.
The Hendersonville Planning Commission approved a land use modification application to authorize the townhouse project by 6 to 4 votes. The site is in close proximity to other multi-family residential developments.
Planning commissioners also recommended rezoning for Nearwater Place which must pass two readings by the Hendersonville mayor’s and aldermen’s council for approval. The mayor’s council and aldermen approved the plan at first reading.
Ealey is working with the owner of the Waffle House property and said steps are being taken to improve access.
A public hearing and second reading on Nearwater Place are scheduled for December 14.
