The Whitefish Corridor Community is proposed for 6.55 acres of land north of Edgewood Place between Texas and Colorado avenues, and the 146 units of housing would be divided among seven buildings on the property. Those buildings would range in height between two and three stories, and would contain a mixture of one- and two-bedroom apartments. The land in question is a combination of 2.33 acres of WR-4 high density multifamily residential zoning, and 4.23 acres of WR-2 two-family residential district zoning.
