Construction of a sewer line has put the Arlo apartment project a month behind schedule, the developer says.

A contractor began installing the sewer line in January.

Kent Collins, with Centro Development, LLC, said he hopes the first units will be available for leasing in April.

“We’ve hit a slight problem in building the sanitary sewer line on Maple Street,” he said. “That’s requiring AT&T to do some investigation to determine what we need to do to overcome that.”

The development, located at East Trinity Place, will contain 210 apartment units when completed. Collins said he expects 11 to 30 units to be available for lease in April.

He said he’s not ready to announce any new retail tenants for the development, but said the one tenant that everyone knows about, the city’s beloved Dairy Queen, is still a go.

“I think they’re waiting to get their permit in order to start construction,” Collins said.

Collins said he thinks the development will be a good fit for Decatur.

“We’re very proud of what we’re doing there,” he said. “We think it fits into the city of Decatur, and we’re excited about it opening. We’d like it to be sooner, but that’s one of the risks of construction.”

Construction on the Arlo development began in September of 2014, following a dispute with DeKalb County over sewer fees that delayed the project.
