So tough that Fleet Oil and Gas has signed a contract to buy two apartment complexes on Washington Drive with plans to tear them down and set up a drilling rig if the city approves the required drilling.
Reporter Susan Schrock reports that the two complexes, Madison Creek and Hampton Hills apartments, have 291 units between them and are among 22 apartment complexes in the city's Lamar-Collins zoning overlay. The city last year approved new zoning in hopes of attracting retail and office developments, as well as high-rise residential complexes.
