Bryan City Council met in a special meeting Tuesday and approved zoning changes for the $250 million mixed-use development. The development consists of towers of luxury apartment buildings and commercial space. Planning and Zoning Commission was previously split in a 4-4 tie to approve the zoning change.

The city staff recommended the new proposed plan during the meeting subject to the standard parkland development procedures applying to the project. Citizens that lived near the project expressed concerns over the potential decrease in residential property values and traffic congestion.

Council members expressed concern about the difference between the project’s initial presentation and plans submitted for the project. It was initially described as a “mini Arabella,” referencing a previously constructed building in Houston. The concept drawings submitted did not look like the Arabella and appeared to have significantly less glass.

The project’s website also shows a rendering different from the one submitted to the council.

The project is expected to take ten years to finish and is expected to be valued at $250 million. A venture capital firm will be financing the project.
