Plans have been submitted to the City of Apopka for a new, 43-unit luxury apartment complex. The proposed project carries the name Meadow View Apartments and would be built just west of the intersection of Vick and Welch roads and would overlook what was the 7th fairway of the Grove portion of the Errol Golf Course.
The 9-hole Grove course was closed several years ago. Six of the holes lie to the west of Vick Road and three of the holes are on the east side of Vick.
AHO Holdings has proposed to build an entrance to the 4.3 acre parcel on Vick Road approximately 500 feet south of the intersection of Vick and Welch. The entrance would not be gated. Fire suppression sprinklers would be installed in the 43 apartments.
The concept plan shows five separate two-story buildings and a clubhouse with a pool.
The City's Development Review Committee discussed the apartment project with the developer and his engineer on Wednesday. The committee asked several questions and commented that certain aspects might need further attention including the removal of the entrance island, the spacing of the buildings, and the stability of the slope above the parking lot and along Vick Road, especially near the proposed cul de sac.
In 2008 a condominium project called Villa Tuscany was approved to be built on the same parcel. The project was subsequently abandoned.
