Council OKs variances for Honda site

Monday, August 13, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

It looks like the old Honda dealership at 1301 W. Koenig Lane is headed for redevelopment. City Council approved flood plain variances Thursday that will allow for the construction of a multifamily building (and parking) within the 25- and 100-year flood plains of the Grover Tributary of Shoal Creek. It was the second time the matter was before Council. A previous vote was only enough to pass the variances on first reading, but after a 7-4 vote from Council with Mayor Steve Adler, Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo and Council members Alison Alter and Ora Houston voting against, developers can move ahead with plans to construct a four-story multifamily building with 383 residential units.
