Bachman Realty prepares to rezone 17 more acres near the Moorings

WICHITA — Brothers Kurt and Brad Bachman of Bachman Realty are proceeding with rezoning 17 more acres in their 28-acre development along Meridian south of 53rd Street North.

“Everyone seems to think it’s pretty positive,” Kurt Bachman says.

That’s because the Bachmans have been working with neighbors at the Moorings, where their family has been in development for 30 years, since last year when they tried to get general office and multifamily residential zoning for an independent living center, townhouses, twin homes and triplexes along with an office and medical plaza.

Initially, only 11 acres were approved.

“We had some concerns from the neighborhood, so we’ve changed the plan a little bit,” Bachman says.
