Richmond American Homes is taking over the remaining development of Hager's Crossing, which is behind Walmart, off Garland Groh Boulevard.

The development sits on 230 acres. The company hopes to build 30 to 35 homes per year until the project is complete, said David Trostel, the project manager with Frederick, Seibert & Associates. At that point, the development will connect to McDade Road, he said.

I'm really glad to see this happening. The project has been limping along VERY slowly ever since the Recession. I'm surprised that it took almost 10 years to get it up and running again.

Here is the project site: https://www.richmondamerican.com/mar...r%27s-crossing

The state-of-the-art elementary school might be a selling point to young, prospective families (buyers) that of course wasn't there a decade ago:

Opening Day at Jonathan Hager Elementary School

And the Aldi's will provide a place to shop exclusively for groceries rather than having to battle with the throngs at Walmart.

It's definitely an attractive location. The neighborhood offers some amenities, such as a pool and clubhouse, as well. It's hard to believe that a neighborhood with so much going for it was basically put onto hiatus for 10 years.

I agree Dequindre, it's a head scratcher. Especially considering how fast Collegiate Acres is building down the street off of Salem Ave. That neighborhood is growing like crazy.

I know there are plans for more development beside the Wal-Mart and between the AC&T and Best Buy shopping center, but have not heard any news.

Is Collegiate Acres finished yet? It has to be pretty darn close.

There are plans for a Chick-fil-A and Aldi on Garland Groh too, but I haven't heard much about those plans lately.

I don't think it's finished yet. Still some land left back there, but....it's filling up fast.

Not sure what's up with the Aldi and Chick-fil-A. With Aldi building out by the new Wal-Mart, I sort of wonder if that one is replacing the one on Garland Groh?

I imagine the Aldi out by the new Walmart is replacing the Aldi currently downtown.
