More housing may be coming to River District

More redevelopment in the River District could be coming as the Planning Commission on Monday voted to recommend approval of a special use permit that will allow multifamily dwellings at 501, 505 & 539 Craghead St.

If approved by the City Council, the former Imperial Tobacco Building would be converted into approximately 250 one and two-bedroom apartment units as part of a phased project.

The first phase will consist of renovating the wings of the building to include 110 units, followed by renovating the middle of the building during phase two for additional apartment units as well as the possibility of commercial space.

Developer Garrett Shifflett sought the permit. The City Council will vote on the Planning Commission’s recommendation of approval at its meeting on March 7.
