Plan for Tramway condos hits snag: Project will likely be revised because site’s not as large as was thought

Douglas County Commissioners on Thursday indefinitely suspended a plan to build 52 condominiums near the top of Kingsbury Grade.

Developers Nanuk Real Estate Consulting Inc. had proposed the construction of the condominiums on two parcels, totaling about 16 acres, at the northeast corner of Jack Court and Tramway Drive.

The commission heard the item at an Oct. 11 meeting, but it was held over to Thursday’s meeting because questions arose regarding the size of one of the parcels.

Thursday’s suspension came after it was confirmed one of the parcels is more than an acre smaller than considered under the original plans.

Potential revisions to the project’s site plan in light of the smaller parcel size could drop the number of condominiums from 52 to 40, said Douglas County Manager Dan Holler.

Nanuk had requested a change in residential height standards to allow construction of a 100-foot tall building, the elimination of the required Recreational Vehicle Parking and Storage, and a reduction in sidewalk improvement standards for the project.

Because of the indefinite suspension, residents in the vicinity of the potential development will be noticed before the item coming before the board again, commissioners said.
