If you are shopping or eating in Addison Town Center, located on the southeast corner of Marsh Lane and Belt Line Road, then you may notice some new construction going on. That’s because there is going to be a brand-new two-story office and retail building right here!
At its Nov. 10 meeting, the Addison City Council approved a zoning change for a new retail/office development at 3820 Belt Line Road. The new two-story building will be next to the old Humperdink’s restaurant and will have approximately 2,500 square feet of first-floor retail and 720 square feet of second-floor office space.
According to the Town of Addison, the Town established the Belt Line District in 2006, requiring all properties along the Belt Line Road corridor to follow the envisioned standards related to items such as walkability, lighting and building frontages as they redevelop. Since the Town adopted the Belt Line District, only the Asbury Circle townhome neighborhood, located just east of this site, has been zoned to the Belt Line District. The Belt Line District also served as the foundation for the Addison Grove Planned Development district. In approaching this case, Town staff worked with the developer to apply as many of the Belt Line District standards as possible; however, some standards were not feasible on a small in-fill site such as this.
