BRIGHTON – A proposed luxury apartment complex that would feature more than 200 units on the Mill Pond is back up for review by the city following several years of delays. Brighton City Council will review a revised site plan for Vista at Uptown at its regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at city hall, 200 N. First St. Lansing-based firm DTN Management has tweaked plans since originally receiving site plan approval from the city in 2018. An amended site plan was approved in 2020.

“Adjusting to the post-pandemic construction world, DTN Management has submitted another amended site plan which will help get the development started,” according to city documents.

The proposed apartment complex would be a four-story structure with 235 units on North Second Street between the road and Mill Pond, south of Advance Street. The firm increased the number of units from the previously proposed plan of 205.

The development would be an upscale complex featuring four different floor plans: 11 studio, 144 one-bedroom, 72 two-bedroom and eight three-bedroom units. The firm made a few other revisions to the plan, including reducing the size of the complex by about 15%. The revised proposal places parking below ground instead of above ground.
