MIDLAND - Housing in the north and west sides of town continues to develop with the approval of zone changes for a hotel and apartment complex by the Planning and Zoning Commission.

The apartment, planned to be located at the intersection of Briarwood Ave. and Spence Dr., will be 250 units at 21 units per acre, said Ken Van Dyne, senior planner for the city's planning division.

The apartment complex will be a mixture of one-, two- and three-story units. The buildings closest to Briarwood Dr. will be three stories, the buildings in the middle will be two stories and the buildings on the northern part of the lot will be one story.

The apartments also will feature a two-story clubhouse, a swimming pool, a spa and a sand volleyball court.

The hotel, located on Starboard Dr., west of South Loop 250 West, will be a Four Point Sheraton, according to Sara Higgins, city spokesperson. The hotel will be five stories and is being built near the upcoming Cinergy Cinema movie theater on Liberty Dr.

Earlier this month, Planning and Zoning approved zone changed for two other new hotels — and the possibility of at least 180 new hotel rooms — near the Scharbauer Sports Complex.

The week before, in February, the Midland City Council approved zone changes for two other hotels in the area — a Hilton Home 2 and Staybridge Suites.
