Washington County is poised for plenty of new development over the next few years, specifically in Woodbury, Newport, and Cottage Grove. So far, three major housing projects are currently in the works for these Minneapolis suburbs, and two of the three will already be starting construction in the very near future.
The new Bailey Meadows community, which represents the largest new development of the bunch, will encompass 64-acres and feature 189 home sites. Officially approved back on November 16th, this sprawling new community is being built by national home builder M/I Homes, and will be located right along Military Road over in Newport. Currently, plans call for 100 villa-style homes and 89 single-family residences, which are expected to price anywhere between $400,000 and $600,000.
In Woodbury, Creative Homes and David Weekley Homes will be building the bulk of the home in Glen View Farm, which will include 87 single-family residences and 54 detached town homes.
Kingston Fields is the other major new development in the works, which will be a 59-acre, 124 single-family home community from national home builder D.R. Horton. But unlike the previous two, Cottage Grove’s Planning Commission is still awaiting additional information about the development before officially giving it a green light. If approved, Kingston Fields will be developed along Jamaica Avenue just north of Rose of Sharon Lutheran Church.
