Mebane Gives Green Light for More Townhomes and Apartments
Monday night the Mebane City Council approved a request by Meritage Homes to construct 51 additional townhomes as part of a soon-to-be-built subdivision at the intersection of East Washington Street and Mattress Factory Road. Meritage had already received approval for the construction of a development named Oakwood that would include 134 townhouses and 175 single-family homes. The project is on the Orange County side of Mebane. The additional 51 townhome units will be named Oak Grove Trail. The Mebane City Council also approved a rezoning request that makes way for a 48-unit apartment complex to be built on South Eleventh Street. The complex will have three two-story apartment buildings and each building will house eight one-bedroom apartments and eight two-bedroom units.
