Developers have got the go from planning and zoning for a new outdoor shopping center and an apartment complex in Midland. Midland is in desperate need of housing to accommodate all of the relocating to Midland. 

The apartment couple will hopefully develop west of Tradewinds boulevard just off Business 20. It will consist of 300 units spaced over 16 acres of on average 24 units per acre. The estimated time for this complex once approved is 8 months. 

The new outdoor shopping center is also being taken into consideration. The shopping cent would be located off of Loop 250 near the Blue Ridge Apartments in Midland. The shopping center will be 50,000 square feet with glass front open-air area. 48 trees are required to be planted but the developers have chosen to only plant 26 trees and donate $300.00 to the Parks Endowment Fund for every tree not planted under the required 48. Midland officials are very excited for the development and cannot wait to start the project.
