Apple Valley looks to future impact of bus rapid transit line.
Wish it was going to be a 5 Guys instead of Smashburger.
Apple Valley is sort of an anomaly amongst the outer suburbs in that it's far away from the core but because it has a large transit center AND is investing in continued transit and TOD (transit-oriented development) it is uniquely "urban-suburban" in certain areas like Cedar/Cnty Rd 42. I'm not sure there should be ANY set limit to building heights as that only seems to prohibit developers from building sites in the most efficient way. Most likely there won't be any proposals for anything over 10 floors anyways, and the tallest buildings currently are 6-8 story offices that would be as tall or taller than a 10 story apartment building. Otherwise, I like this plan and I like seeing a suburb really embrace urban living and amenities like this.....it makes suburban living more of an option for urban dwellers who want the best of both worlds!
