By a unanimous vote, the council approved phase one of the Woodland Cove development at their August 19th meeting. The Woodland Cove subdivision is located generally north of T.H. 7 and east of Kings Point Road.
Mattamy Homes is the builder for the first phase of the project. Mattamy comes to Minnetrista with over 35 years of experience and has built more than 60,000 homes in 150 integrated communities across Canada and the United States. Mattamy Homes is Canada’s largest new home builder; the company is represented in five metropolitan areas in the United States: Minneapolis, Charlotte, Phoenix, Jacksonville and Orlando. The first phase approved sets up the development and the framework for future phases. The total development site area is 490 acres. This plat creates 214 new residential lots in phase one which encompasses 123 acres. Their plan includes 174 single family lots and 40 multifamily lots. Mattamy Homes could potentially purchase 70% of the overall site which would result in future phases.
Construction has already begun with grading efforts. The developers plan to work through the winter on construction of a homeowner’s association clubhouse, sales office and eight to ten model homes. The first phase roadways will also be constructed on the site. New home prices are expected to range from about $185,000 to the high $400,000 in the first phase. Already underway, is construction of a roundabout on Hwy. 7 and the reconstruction of Kings Point Road. Please watch the Current Projects and Developments page of the City website for updated information, maps and more.
