On March 21, the Blaine City Council granted a final plat approval allowing three parcels of land to be combined into one, which will be the location of a new apartment complex.

Cedar Point Apartments, which will be located at 1145 116th Ave. NE, will have 138 apartments, with 18 studio, 57 one-bedroom and 63 two-bedroom units.

Other amenities will include a large patio recreation area, main floor common space, a fitness area and an upper floor event room with panoramic views of a nearby lake in Hidden Ponds Park. The project will bring in $613,962 in park dedication fees, which the city can use for parks projects.

Last August, the City Council granted preliminary plat approval and a conditional use permit for the Cedar Point Apartments project.

The apartment complex will sit on 6.5 acres of land. Work is estimated to start early this summer.

Planning and Community Development Director Bryan Schafer said the owner, Peter Stalland, is getting ready to close on the property and has almost completed plans for the project. He said building permits should be issued soon, but the final plat needed approval first.

Schafer said that since the preliminary plat was approved, two new cul-de-sacs have been added.

“This changes nothing that we’ve already talked about and approved,” Mayor Tom Ryan said.

Council Member Julie Jeppson asked Stalland if four homes on the site would remain or be demolished. Stalland said they’d be demolished.

Stalland said he would also remove some oak trees in the area.

Council Member Jess Robertson asked if Stalland’s team would notify residents in the area that trees will come down.

“I know the neighborhood meeting was a packed house, so I think it’s good to let the neighbors know what is happening during construction,” she said.

Stalland said he would notify local residents.

The City Council approved the final plat 6-0. Council Member Andrew Garvais was absent.
