A San Rafael developer is seeking the city’s permission to build 180 apartments on a vacant Terra Linda hillside.
Dennis Hart, who has developed several high-density housing sites in Marin, hopes to build the apartment complex on an 11-acre plot on the west side of Los Gamos Road. The city’s zoning rules allow for a maximum of one home per every two acres on the site. Hart is seeking a zoning designation change to allow what the city considers “high-density residential” development.
“It’s a great opportunity to provide what Marin really needs more of,” said the project architect, Colin Russell. “We’re so short of housing.”
