The Pointe apartments ask for expansion

BLYTHEWOOD – A request for an expansion of The Pointe at Blythewood, a low income apartment complex that opened last year on Main Street, across from Blythewood Consignment, will be heard by Town Council Monday evening during its regular monthly meeting. Council will also hear from a developer who is proposing a second senior living facility in the Town on acreage behind the Food Lion Shopping Center next to Cobblestone Park.

“We received a letter from Prestwick Developers asking Council to approve a letter that would allow 32 additional apartments to be built on two acres behind the current Pointe complex,” Mayor J. Michael Ross told The Voice on Wednesday. “We’ll just have to see what Council wants to do after they make their presentation,” Ross said.

The senior center proposal will be presented by the developer’s representative, Mark Richardson, a Cobblestone resident.

“What they’re proposing is different from the senior center proposed next to the IGA,” Ross said. “This one is more of a town house style.”

Council will be voting on approval letters for both the expansion for The Pointe and the senior living center.
