Lancaster County has 300 Indian Land apartments on the table and waiting for approval.
Lancaster County Council meets Feb. 12. On the agenda that night is a plan for 300 apartments in Indian Land, on the east side of U.S. 521 opposite Bridgemill. Six Mile Creek will be a mixed use development on 20 acres.
Land Design, on behalf of Pollack Shores Real Estate Group, submitted the plan Dec. 1. Six Mile Creek has the apartments, but also proposed small commercial uses. The county planning commission voted in favor on Feb. 1.
A traffic impact statement for the project recommended changes to the U.S. 521 and Marvin Road traffic signal, a southbound turn lane at U.S. 521 and Bridgemill Drive and a westbound left turn lane and through right lane exiting the site.

The planning staff recommendation was contingent on widening the paved crossover median on U.S. 521, widening of lanes and adding a northbound left turn lane at U.S. 521 and Bridgemill, too. County staff expects the state transportation department to look at the intersection there and determine a traffic signal is needed.
Six Mile Creek would be almost twice the residential density of townhome community Windsor Trace, immediately north. Other property beside the proposal is being developed as townhomes or projected to be “high-end commercial/retail/service” according to county planning documents.
The apartments will be spread over seven buildings, at four or five stories.
Rezonings in the works
In a separate decision, the county can start the rezoning process on more than five acres at S.C. 160 and Barberville Road from residential to business use. The application doesn’t give a plan for what would go on the property.
A little more than an acre on Charlotte Highway is up for rezoning, too, which would allow for a commercial building. An accounting firm and up to six more professional service tenants would use it. It’s near the intersection with Charles Pettus Road.
The county can start rezoning on more than five more acres at U.S. 521 and Louis Springs Road. The landowner is looking to build a home there, after developing part of a larger property as a small shopping center.
Another rezoning would allow for a Sam’s Express Carwash on Charlotte Highway and Shelly Mullis Road. Still another would rezone about 10 acres at S.C. 160 and Charlotte Highway, north of the RedStone development, to a regional business district zoning.
