St. Cloud set to vote after public hearing on major development

(KNSI) – St. Cloud has delayed a decision on a major development project in South St. Cloud. Klein’s planned landscaping unit development off the 4000 block of South 33rd Street has been tabled until the next City Council meeting. The project includes four apartment buildings, an assisted living facility, a fitness center, offices and shops.

A public hearing was held Monday at City Council. Developer Larry Klein spoke at the hearing and said he was building fewer but nicer apartments.

“We are targeting higher-end multi-family housing. We had a higher density ratio of about 353 units. With the investment group we deal with, they have a preference for larger units as well as more common space. The count is therefore down to 287.

He says the area will include green spaces, a pond and landscaping.

“Some of the concept plans show somewhat heavier landscaping improvements on the property, since we are in this business.”

The 42-acre site is expected to spark new growth in St. Cloud.

“With the new Tech High School being completed. We think there’s going to be a lot of growth along 33rd Street and we think that’s a good place to start.

The developers say plans could change as tenants and businesses commit to the project. The proposal was tabled because some board members were absent from Monday’s meeting.
