UPDATE 11/8/2019: P&Z held a short workshop for 4800 Fournace on November 7th to discuss a possible new Zoning District to replace the Technical Research Park district.  To date none of the current applications from SLS Properties have been approved.  The developer has reduced the height of structures and multi-family is no longer included in the applications.  The next P&Z meeting to address this property is currently planned for December 12, 2019.     

Part of the discussion was a definition of what constitutes multi-family in our zoning ordinances and the Comprehensive Plan.  Perhaps it’s time to resolve that question. Do Bellaire residents want multi-story apartment buildings and condominiums adjacent to residential areas?  Or are we talking about an owner living above a business?

Here’s a link to the original SLS Properties zoning applications for this property.

The original requests include rezoning the property at 4800 Fournace Place and 5901 S. Rice Ave. property from TRP, Technical Research Park, Zoning District to CMU.

Written comments regarding the application can be e-mailed to zoning@bellairetx.gov or dropped off in person.  An environmental report and presentation on the property is also scheduled to take place at the October 10th meeting.  Find the report by TRC Companies, Inc. here.
