Plan for apartments near Fairacres stalls

A North Carolina-based firm’s plan to build apartments near the Fairacres neighborhood appears to have stalled.

City Councilman Pete Festersen said Campus Crest Communities Inc. told him it would not seek Planning Board approval of the controversial proposal in March.

It’s unclear whether the developer is revising its plan or scrapping it altogether.

Neighborhood opposition quickly surfaced after the firm unveiled a proposal for 10 buildings on an eight-acre site not far from 72nd and Cass Streets.
