This project is currently under construction with a delivery slated for late spring 2017. Once complete, it will feature 132 residential units, 64 of which will be multi-family condos, 38 will be townhomes, and 30 will be "two over two" stacked condos. An existing apartment complex will also be redeveloped.

3. Paulvi VI Catholic High School

This project is still in the conceptual stages, so don't be surprised if it gets a few tweaks here and there. What is currently planned for the 18-acre site is residential and commercial space.
