PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Developers have proposed a new apartment complex in Portsmouth.

The Portsmouth Herald reports Clipper Traders LLC presented housing development plans to the city Planning Board during a meeting Monday. Developers want to rezone a 10-acre piece of land near North Mill Pond for the proposed 120-unit apartment complex.

Tim Phoenix, an attorney for Clipper Traders, says the company wants to make sure the development fits with the zoning designation. Phoenix says the new zoning would allow developers to build as high as 55 feet if the company includes a public greenway along the water.

Councilor Doug Roberts says he has concerns about the size of the building.

Board members will decide on the rezoning request next month.
