The Miramar City Commission may rezone land for the development of a rental apartment complex with 650 units.

The company behind the rezoning request and proposed apartment project is Boca Raton-based Altman Development Corp., part of the Altman Companies, led by chairman Joel L. Altman.

City commissioners on Wednesday are expected to consider rezoning the proposed Miramar development site from rural to mixed use.

The 30-acre site is at the northwest corner of Miramar Parkway and Red Road, where Altman wants to build apartments plus 50,000 square feet of retail and commercial space.

The two residential components of the proposed development would be called Altis West and Altis East.

Altis West would have 320 garden-style apartments and Altis East 330 mid-rise apartments. Some of the ground-floor apartments would have attached garages.

Shared amenities would include a clubhouse at the center of the development and an adjacent linear park. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
