Council OKs development near Arthur Place

Staff report

The Enclave at Adalee development moves forward after Delaware City Council approved the final plan and subdivision plat earlier this week.

Located to the west side of South Houk Road and north of Arthur Place homes, the development will consist of 96 single-family attached units on about 15.18 acres zoned as a multi-family residential district. The minimum unit size is 1,350 square feet and would have a two-vehicle garage with a driveway that can accommodate parking for two additional vehicles.

The design requirements are to mimic the Arthur Place ranch-style attached units with a stone wainscoting with an earth tone color to be harmonious and compatible with the adjacent neighborhoods, according to a city-prepared fact sheet.

The Enclave at Adalee is located at what was originally planned to be Arthur Place. In 2007, a portion of the Willowbrook planned development was subject to be rezoned. It was coordinated with the initial submission for what became Arthur Place. But Arthur Place switched sites, the following year, to what became its current location.

The development site’s history goes back to 1999 when Medrock LLC received approval for planned mixed use development that permitted residential, multi-family, commercial and industrial uses. A large portion of the area was built out to include the following developments: Adalee Park, Millbrook, Braddington Commons, Arthur Place, Village at Willowbrook Farms and Willowbrook East.
