Candelas Paired Homes Neighborhood Meeting

Candelas Neighborhood Meeting

Date: Wednesday, February 14th, 2019
Time: 6:30pm
Subject: KB Homes (Applicant/Builder) Paired Homes Filing No. 2
Source: KB Homes Slides used in presentation

 

Editor’s Note: There was a typo in KB Homes’ presentation when referring to W 94th Place, they intended to say W 94th Ave, which is located adjacent to Umber Way. Please nore that there is an W 94th Place that is proposed being built in addition. This causes a lot of confusion. Please take this into consideration when reviewing the layout.

Candelas Development Guidelines prescribe these parcels as an “Age Targeted” neighborhood.

Why is it designed this way:
“The site is located adjacent to the Town Center, which is easily accesible via the underpass through Central Park, ”

-And –
“The site is located in an area where topography dictates smaller pockets of development”

What is an “Age-Targeted Neighborhood”
“These homes are planned to be age-targeted as opposed to age-restricted, with designs that are conductive to the lifestyles of those 55 years old and up.”

Land Use: Currently Allowed

  • The original use is further reinforced within the approved Candelas “Outline Development Plan” – 6th amendement, amended December 2016.
  • This amendement adjusted the allowed number of units/density on Parcels 2-u, and 2-v (area of the proposed application)

The amendment adjusted the allowed lots on these parcels to the following:

– 2-u – Townhomes, 85 lots and a density of 5.74
– 2-v – Condominiums, 114 lots allowed and a density of 8.44
– A total of 199 lots on the 2 parcels, this was a reduction from the earlier ODP which allowed 297 lots.

  • This application proposes;
    98 lots (49 paired Buildings), and a density of 3.69 DU/Acre, A reduction of approximately 50% from allowed
    – KB Homes feel this will be:
    – A compatible use to the existing homes
    – Still meet the intent of the guidelines
    – Still be able to provide “age-targeted” elements

The application proposes to closely follow the current single family detached requirements for the proposed family attached development.

– This is an excerpt of a table in the “Residential Design Guidelines” (see below – left table)

– These are the Single Family Detached development Standards
– It is noted that single family attached standard will be provided with future PDP.
