Gravel Mine Development Update: Construction Has Begun on Orchard Place
Construction has begun on a new development called “Orchard Place” in the gravel mine that is located just west of Target on Pilot Knob. Pulte homes is constructing 101 units and the commercial site on the first 36 acres which will include a Lunds/Byerlys, a car wash, several restaurants, a coffee shop, a retail shop and possibly a medical building. Many more businesses will eventually be in the mix. 155th Street is to be installed at the end of the commercial area this coming Spring. The entire AVR gravel mine is 414 acres. This initial Orchard Place phase is a subdivided parcel. It will take many years for the entire 414 acreage to be developed as the remainder of the last materials of the mine are removed. The entire area is already fully planned with initial phases already having City permits.
