A quick update on the proposed Greystone Inn apartment complex:

The project at Duke Street and Morehead Avenue was scheduled to come before the Historic Preservation Commission today, but Ron Horvath of Horvath Associates, the civil engineering firm working on the proposal, asked for a continuance until December. The HPC granted the continuance, the second for the project. Lomax Properties of Greensboro is the developer.

The architect is redesigning the site to break the 140 apartments into smaller buildings, Horvath said. Currently, the plan calls for three apartment buildings. City-county planning staff has criticized the project for its mass and density, which is inconsistent with the Morehead Hill Historic District, where the apartments would be built.

There is a chance that the controversial project will be withdrawn completely in December, Horvath said, “if the timing isn’t right.”
