ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - The Roanoke Planning Commission votes unanimously to allow an apartment complex off of Orange Avenue.
A North Carolina developer wants to build more than 300 apartments east of Gus Nicks Boulevard.
The site is currently zoned as a commercial site not residential.
During a public hearing, three people spoke against the project some saying the traffic on Orange Avenue will be unbearable.
City council will vote on rezoning the site later this month.
