Austin Landing luxury apartments seek new signs up to 6 feet tall

New signs as tall as 6 feet are being proposed on the façade of a 276-unit luxury apartment complex at Austin Landing.

The Connor Group is seeking new signage for the east and west sides of the structure that opened in late 2016 after what was estimated as a project valued at $35 million.

“The original plan did not call for additional signage,” Miami Twp. Deputy Community Development Director Kyle Hinkelman said.

Hence, The Connor Group has applied for a major modification to the complex’s preliminary development plan, which was proposed in 2014.

The issue is scheduled to go before the township’s zoning commission on Nov. 19.

Building signage would include 3-foot tall lettering and 6-foot lettering, both “mounted internally lit with….acrylic face,” according to Miami Twp. records.

The application also seeks to install a smaller ground sign in front of the building’s leasing office at 10501 Landing Way west of Kroger, records show.

When plans initially were proposed for the 4.3-acre development, The Flats at Austin Landing was owned by The Fortus Group, an Indiana real estate development and investment group.

In June, two parcels at the Landing Way address were sold by Austin Landing VII Ltd. to Flats at Austin Landing LLC for an undisclosed price, according to Montgomery County Auditor’s Office records.

The combined value of those parcels is about $27.46 million, records show.

The Miami Twp.-based Connor Group, which has a portfolio of more than 13,000 apartment units in 14 markets, is “working under a confidentiality agreement” regarding its role with The Flats and Austin Landing, a company spokeswoman said.

The Connor Group features The Flats at Austin Landing on its website, advertising units for lease. They range from 496 square foot studio apartments starting at $1,049 a month to two-bedroom, 1,155 square foot units for $1,949.

“Our apartments in Austin Landing feature a wide variety of amenities,” among them manicured courtyards with built-in fire pit and poolside grills, an on-site bark park, fitness center, media lounge, and resort-style saltwater swimming pool with splash lounge and deck, according to the company’s website.
