Apartments possible for former Chapel Hill auto dealership

Developers asked the town’s Community Design Commission for guidance last week as they plan a potential apartment project for the Ephesus-Fordham zoning district.

Texas-based Leon Capital Group is in the very early stages of a concept plan for the former Crown Honda-Volvo site between Legion Road and the Fordham Boulevard service road. The 6.5-acre site is next to Rams Plaza on the south and Hong Kong Buffet and Quality Inn on the north.

An early concept plan for the Crown Honda-Volvo site – subject to change – shows a five-story apartment building wrapped around a parking deck and another four-story apartment building with parking underneath.
