At Tuesday’s meeting, the Fort Worth City Council approved a zoning change that will allow for the creation of a cottage community at 5591 Altamesa Blvd.

The property is located at the southwest corner of Altamesa and Granbury Road. The applicant, Kroger Texas LP, plans to create a cottage community, a multifamily use that will include multiple individual, separate structures on one lot, shared community space, and a leasing office on site.

The proposed development consists of 230 detached dwelling units, each with a back yard. There is a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, with two-bedroom units making up approximately two-fifths of the unit count.

The applicant has explained that this multifamily form provides an option to the typical large building multi-family structure by creating individual “homes” with small yards under a rental structure and no maintenance. Some garages and carports may be provided, but otherwise all parking is in parking lots accessed through internal private driveways.

“This is a very difficult piece of property because of the railroad tracks and the water easements, so we’re anxious to see how this project works,” District 6 Councilman Jungus Jordan said. “It’s a very inviting project.”
