A new 12-building apartment complex with 285 units may be coming to the southwest corner of Matanzas Woods Parkway and Belle Terre Parkway.

The city of Palm Coast’s Planning and Land Development Regulation Board approved a master site plan for the apartment complex in a 6-0 vote at the board’s Nov. 20 meeting.

The 12 three-story apartments would sit on the northern side of a 188.5-acre lot of land in the Matanzas West Mixed Use project area, which extends along the western side of Belle Terre Parkway from Matanzas Woods Parkway south about six tenths of a mile, according to city documents. It is part of a Development of Regional Impact that was approved in 2004. Developments of regional impact are longterm projects that involve multiple years of planning.

The part of the lot that is developable is only about 29 acres, and the rest will be left natural, Senior Planner Bill Hoover told board members. 

The northern and southern portions of the development would have six three-story buildings each. The northern portion would have 141 one-bedroom apartments plus a clubhouse, and the southern portion would have 144 one-bedroom units and a clubhouse.

The master site plan will require the approval of the City Council. If the council approves it, the developer will then submit a technical site plan with engineering drawings, according to city documents.
