A plan to increase the number of proposed apartment units at a new master-planned community in Sugar Land is drawing opposition.
The apartments would be part of the Imperial project, which is being developed on 715 acres on the northeast side of U.S. 90A and Texas 6.
The newest plans include 950 units on a 124-acre tract west of the Mayfield Park subdivision and 650 units on 46 acres just south of the subdivision and east of the Nalco Energy Services complex.
Those figures are higher than the 459 units that were included in a general development plan approved by the city in June 2007.
The current developer, Johnson Development Corp., is seeking city approval to more than triple the number of units. But that plan has suffered a setback with city planners, who on March 16 recommended not considering the preliminary plan as submitted after identifying what they described as deficiencies and concerns. They advised the developer to submit a revised plan.
The plan doesn’t sit well with some nearby residents, who fear it will increase congestion on area streets, cause school crowding and decrease property values.
