NORMAN — City council members Tuesday will consider a request to rezone property on Campus Corner to allow for construction of a high-rise apartment building.
Mark Risser and the B3 Development Group want the property's official use to be changed from suburban office/commercial designation to intensive commercial with a special-use permit for a mixed-use building.
Risser is proposing a six-story building that would cover a portion of the 600 and 700 blocks of Asp Avenue and the 400 block of Buchanan Street. The building would feature a parking garage on the lowest level, with retail shops on the first floor. The top four floors would be one- and two-bedroom apartments.
The project has been on the council agenda numerous times in the past, but each time action was postponed at the request of the applicant.
City officials said developers plan to move forward with their requests at Tuesday's meeting. The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building's council chambers, 201 W Gray St.
