Pending a change in the statement of intent for property at Brushy Creek Road near S. Suber Road, a new single family residential community on 19.96 acres will take root with 53 patio homes scheduled to be built.

The development was a double dose of good economic news for Greer today. Just hours after Honeywell announced a $25 million investment and 30 new jobs over a 5-year period, the residential community was moved forward by the planning commission, upon receipt of a new site plan. 

The Mungo Companies, based in Irmo, planned to build townhouses on the city property, but has changed its plan to the single family, patio homes. The typical 1,300-square foot home will be priced from about $120,000s and up. 

“The staff must recommend denial of the development until discrepancies are resolved,” Glenn Pace, city planning and zoning coordinator, said.

Brian Martin, commission member, moved to approve the planning commission’s recommendation of denial subject to the statement of intent becoming consistent with the site plan. The move was seconded and passed 7-0 by the commission.

“I plan on getting (the new site plan) to the planning commission tomorrow,” Chris Przirembel of Gray Engineering, said.

Once Pace receives the new site plan, it receives automatic unanimous approval and will be placed on city council agenda for first reading on Tuesday, Oct.25

Przirembel said Gray Engineering will move forward with its engineering plans. Grading is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2012.

Victoria Park in Simpsonville, said Przirembel, is a similar residential community built by Mungo. Typical one-story homes feature three bedrooms, two baths, a great room opening to a dinette area and kitchen. The master bedroom features a linen closet and walk-in closet. The secondary bedroom has a walk-in closet.

“The submitted site plan and revised plan meet all the requirements for the planned development,” Pace said. 

The planned neighborhood, “touches the backside and is adjacent to Lismore Park,” Pace said. “Things are happening there and it’s close to a build out.”

Two adjacent out parcels to the patio homes will remain zoned for commercial.
