It seems like it is not just Suncrest either. Pretty much as soon as they build something around here, somebody wants to locate there. People are recognizing the potential that is Morgantown.

Yes very true, you can go around anywhere in morgantown and see construction. For example I'm living by Mario's fishbowl area and they are finishing up on some apartments and getting ready to construct more

Yes, Morgantown is growing rather fast, except the infrastructure.

Construction is everywhere.

I havent seen anything like it since I left Austin Texas.

Before too long I think development will take over that farmland next to Stewartstown and Copper Beech. Same goes for the old Easton School site and farmland behind it.

They are expecting growth of at least 1,000 people per year for the foreseeable future. I realize that is only 4 people per day, but the cumulative effect over time is enormous and those people have to go somewhere.

Umm no, more like 2.74 ppd. But yes, you do have to worry about the cumulative affect. Will Morgantown start building high rises?

Morgantown wont build anything. It is a city in a capitalist society. It doesnt provide housing. It also doesnt zone.

Developers are building midrises. Compare Morgantown now with 10 years ago and there is a lot less 1-3 story houses and more 5-12 story apartment buildings.

I would imagine if the growth continued at some point you would start seeing high rises but that would be a ways off.

Lol, I deserved that for being a smart arse to CT.

You are right. Tons of large apartment complexes have gone up.

Question though. Are there any nice two houses for people looking for modern creature comforts? Such as health club, tennis courts, pool, etc
