New St. George apartment complex planned

The St. George City Council approved a zone change request to accommodate a 12-acre complex of apartment buildings adjacent to the Virgin River in the vicinity of 500 South and 2200 East. If it gains final approval for building, the 244-unit complex would fit into an area designated for high density residential development between the river and a nearby church, school and the Dinosaur Discovery Site museum on Riverside Drive.

It would also be the first large conventional apartment complex to go up in the greater St. George area since 2006, filling a growing gap in the real estate. The Grayhawk Apartments at Rivers Edge plans include a dozen buildings, some reaching four stories in height, and be built to meet the architectural and design standards to fit the surrounding area, with high-end amenities including an outdoor pool and clubhouse.
