The University Park City Council on Tuesday approved a developer’s plan to completely raze the 4500 block of Normandy Avenue and rebuild it. (That’s the block due east of the Tollway.)
A company called JTL Normandy is going to destroy the 10 buildings on the block, which include 54 multi-family units, and replace them with 36 single-family units that will be known as the Courtyards at Normandy. The development will include a cabana and a lap pool on its southwest corner.
Like most University Park residents, people living on the neighboring blocks may be worried about the parking situation. The plans approved Tuesday call for each of the 36 units to be provided with a two-car garage. In addition, the developer is planning to create 14 “inset” parallel-parking spaces along Normandy.
