Condo project on Livernois backed by planners
Preliminary plans for a 57-unit single-family condominium project on the east side of Livernois, just north of M-59, was recommended for approval on Tuesday, May 15, by the Rochester Hills Planning Commission.
The project, dubbed Cumberland Village, is being proposed by Shelby Township developer Lombardo Homes, which hopes to build on 23 acres of land on Livernois, between Hamlin and M-59.
The project will go before the Rochester Hills City Council for consideration on Monday, June 4. The project, if approved, will then require a final site plan approval from the planning commission and city council.
Rochester Hills Planning Director Kristen Kapelanski said in a memo to commissioners that in August of last year, Lombardo met with neighbors at the Rochester Hills Library to discuss the proposed development.
Existing homes at the project site have already been razed. New homes would vary in price and style, from ranches and colonials ranging from 2,200 to 3,800-square-feet, with pricing beginning about $380,000.
The preliminary plan process allows the developer to propose uses, a layout of streets and lots, provide an environmental impact statement and present current site conditions. The second phase requires the development of final site plans based on the approved preliminary plans.
