The Olathe City Council has approved a rezoning request from Lenexa-based Oddo Development, which seeks to construct a 300-unit apartment complex near Cedar Creek Parkway.

The Olathe City Council voted 5-2 to approve the rezoning request.

Oddo has been awaiting approval from the City Council since their previous meeting in March. The rezone would convert over 14 acres of land from a C-2 (Community Center) District to a CC (Cedar Creek) District for mixed-use development known as Cedar Ridge. The site has remained vacant since 1988.

Cedar Ridge is located at the southeast corner of Valley Parkway and Cedar Creek Parkway.

The proposed development would include a four-story, 300-unit multi-family building, with two levels of structured parking and about 5,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. The project will also include a five-unit and a six-unit townhome building and three commercial buildings along Valley Parkway.

The project will be constructed in two phases. Phase one will focus on the multi-family building while phase two will focus on the commercial townhomes, according to Oddo.

Klover Architects Inc. is the architect, Schlagel & Associates is the civil engineer and Priority Engineers Inc. is the traffic engineer for the project.
