Dana Point Development Corporation (DPDC) announced Friday that it is moving ahead with a housing project off of West State Street and Ebony Lane in Grand Island.
DPDC is a real estate investment and development firm headquartered in Turlock, Calif. DPDC’s projects have included both rental and for-sale units in about 20 communities in Nebraska, including North Platte, Kearney, Lexington, Columbus, Seward, Lexington and Aurora. To date, DPDC is responsible for over 500 housing units in the state, ranging from single-family homes to senior communities.
“The location is well situated being close to shopping, restaurants, schools, etc.,” Matt Thomas, president of Dana Point Development Corporation, said in a press release. “It will also transition well into the existing neighborhood of newer homes and townhomes and will be a substantially less-dense use than what is presently allowed. When all phases are completed, we anticipate having around half the units than what is currently approved.”
The yet-to-be-named project will be a mixture of single-story, duplex/townhome-style units and single-family dwellings. This will be a change from the existing development plan approved many years ago allowing for an extension of the multi-story Autumn Park Apartment buildings.
The first phase of development will include 30 duplex/townhome buildings. Future phases will follow with a mix of single-family and duplex/townhome plans.
Phase I will be a mixture of 3-bedroom and 4-bedroom units and will have fully-finished attached garages with extra storage. Interior floor plans will be light and bright, with vaulted ceilings in the living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms, as well as tray ceilings in the master bedroom suites. Energy Star appliance packages will include a range, oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer.
Exteriors will be unique with differing uses roof design/color, brick/stone placement/color and varying front elevations. Siding will be upgraded Hardie cement siding in different forms — lap, shingle, board-n-batten. Yards will be landscaped with sod, underground irrigation, plants and trees.
Project plans are in the initial design stages and are scheduled to be presented to the city this summer, the company said in the press release, with construction expected to begin in early 2019, if not sooner.
