Q: What is The Lake District?
A: The Lake District is a walkable, luxurious community threaded through five premier districts: the inline retail district, the Main Street district (chef-driven restaurants, cafes, curated retail), hotel district, pad sites & office district (75,000 sq. ft. of office space) and the residential district (age-restricted apartments, down-town style luxury apartments and custom single family homes). The Lake District will offer luxury living at its finest! Learn more about each district with these downloadable fliers!
Q: When will construction begin?
A: Demolition of existing site structures has been completed. Site prep and work is well underway! After completing the purchase of all land needed for The Lake District, our crew has been hard at work securing permits and licenses with the city. We’re clearing brush and taking the needed steps to assure that grading is done while minimizing mudflow and erosion.
The main road, Lake District Drive will be constructed first. Every section of the new road will be a compacted surface with 10″-12” of gravel for stabilizing the road in the event of downpours. We have stockpiled 28,000 cubic yards of gravel, all of which come from the old mall that once stood on The Lake District’s site. After Lake District Drive is complete, we will move on to temporary seeding to stabilize other areas and protect against erosion. This process will minimize the project’s construction schedule which will resume after late April.
