The City Council has approved a zoning change to allow an apartment complex to be built on North Fourth Avenue, replacing Maloney’s Tavern.

The project would include market-rate apartments and ground-level retail.

The project would be located at the southern end of Fourth Avenue at Eighth Street and Stevens Avenue on the west.

Their concept plan, filed with the city, shows the west side of the site, along Stevens Avenue, would have two buildings of a minimum 110 feet and maximum 160 feet in height.

A shorter building to the east would be a minimum of 80 feet and maximum of 110 feet in height, neighbored by a 50-foot building and a 30-foot building, the shortest of which would sit on Fourth Avenue.

The project would prohibit some types of retail, like a pawn shop, marijuana dispensary or anything with a drive-through.

This is the second major apartment project planned on Fourth Avenue.

Developer EdR, based in Memphis, Tennessee, is planning to build a multilevel apartment complex between Sixth and Seventh streets, called The Union on Sixth.

The property is mostly occupied by The Flycatcher bar and music venue.

In that project, the northeast corner would be three stories tall and the southeast corner two stories tall. The tallest part of the development, seven stories, would sit back closer to Fifth Avenue.
