PENDLETON — The planning commission approved Thursday a local company to build a 12-unit apartment complex on Southwest Fifth Street.

Gary Zimmerman, of Zephyr Management Group LLC, aims to open the complex Dec. 1. The middle income housing apartments will include energy saving appliances and solar panels to power on-site services such as laundry and outdoor lighting.

Ambient Architecture of Bend is designing the building. Zimmerman also operates the neighboring Village Apartments.

The commission reviewed the plans as a formality, and received no public testimony.
