A plan to convert 74 acres of undeveloped land at 175th Street and Pflumm Road to apartments, villas and shops had promise, members of the Overland Park Planning Commission said.

But in the end, concerns about its density caused commissioners to delay a decision on its rezoning until July 10.

What’s in the plan

  • The proposal, dubbed Schlagel Farms, called for 288 multi-family units, 174 villa units and 128,660 square feet of commercial buildings.
  • It would go on the southeast corner of the intersection of 175th and Plfumm, with single-family neighborhoods Chapel Hill to the north, Wolf Run to the south and Wolf Creek to the west.
  • Blue Valley Middle school is on the tract’s eastern edge.
