Olivette City Council Approves Apartment Development Near I-170 | Subway

Larry Koenig, of Hilltop Drive, called for mitigation of potential issues during construction, such as the construction traffic ban from using Hilltop to access the project area, construction by the developer of a entry to Price at the start of construction and maintenance of noise, dust and debris from unwelcome neighbors.

Barb Grzenczyk, of Olivette Drive, said she was concerned about traffic exiting I-170 and many additional cars entering the residential area. But she said she felt the project was needed.

Sue Rich, of Hilltop Manor Drive, said she was concerned about traffic and the need for crosswalks. “I am one hundred percent for the development, but the density is too high,” she said.

Ryan Carlie of Opus Development Co., who will be the developer, contractor, architect and engineer for the project, said feedback from neighboring residents has been incorporated into the project.

Carlie said the work will improve traffic flow, especially at Price and Olive. He said there will be 281 surface parking spaces, of which around 60 are covered. The building’s amenities will include a swimming pool, fitness area, home work area, club room, yard and more.

A six-foot privacy fence will be installed along the edge of the parking lot, 19 feet from neighboring properties on Hilltop. Additional landscaping will be installed along the buffer zone, he said. A sidewalk will connect Price and Hilltop. An additional southbound left turn will be installed at North Price and Olive, Carlie said.
