A planned apartment development on the site of a former Livonia mall appears to have an additional hurdle if it’s to become a reality.

The city’s planning commission recently recommended denial of a rezoning request at the lone vacant property at the site of the former Wonderland Mall site on the southwest corner of Plymouth and Middlebelt roads.

The proposal would see more than 200 apartment units built as three-story buildings on the land west of Walmart and Target, which has been vacant for many years.

The commission reviewed and voted on the plan during its meeting Oct. 19, several months after the project was delayed when the developer requested more time to retool the plans.

The plans, said Jeffrey Schostak of Livonia-based developer Schostak Brothers & Company, said they’ve taken several issues into consideration when looking to develop the site, including the desires in the newly-adopted Livonia 21 master plan.
