A planned unit development of 26 single family homes for sale on two large existing lots totaling about 9.2 acres on the vacant property between Wendell and East 43rd (18-03-16-20-00700 and 02800) was the subject of discussion on Tuesday night. The homes being planned are contemporary style, predominately one-story with low-pitched roofs. They will be approximately 1,700 to 1,800 square feet with high quality finishes throughout.
The homes will be grouped on the areas of the property with the least slope (areas that are about 8 to 10 percent slope) and will be placed to be the most sensitive to the existing slopes and drainage. Some areas of the overall property have wooded slopes exceeding 20 percent and some areas contain wetlands; those areas will remain wooded and the wetlands will be preserved.
Density of the project will be about 2.8 homes per gross acre. They hope to begin construction in the Spring of 2016.
A formal neighborhood meeting to discuss the project in detail will take place in July.
