- Option B: 33,200 sq. ft. of office space and 234-bed assisted living facility, or
- Option C: 160 multi-family residential units.
• The 19.17± acre site is located on the east side of I-75 and west of Town Center Parkway. The site is zoned PDMU/WP-E/ST (Planned Development Mixed Use/Watershed Protection Evers/Special Treatment Overlay Districts), within the MU (Mixed Use) Future Land Use Category (FLUC), and a designated Entranceways of the County (I-75/SR 70).  
• The site has been developed according to the approved layout of PDMU-98-02/FSP-01-61(R), with the incorporation of the minor changes approved by the PDMU-98-02/FSP-11-43. The previous approval includes a total of 20.42 acres which are part of a condominium figure. The current application excludes 1.25 acres that are under a different ownership and where are located four (4) buildings (33,628 square feet of office space).
• The proposed uses are included in the range of potential uses allowed within the MU FLUC, consisting of non-residential uses such as retail, wholesale, offices uses and light industrial, as well suburban and urban residential uses. The maximum gross and net density allowed within this future land use designation is nine (9) dwelling units per acre and twenty (20) dwelling units per acre, respectively.
