Cobb Hill Construction is pleased to announce that it has begun work on a significant redevelopment project for the Havenwood-Heritage Heights retirement community on East Side Drive in Concord. The project work began in early September 2013. The extensive redevelopment is designed to update more than 54,978 square feet of new construction while demolishing 4,658 square feet of existing older cottages in order to provide more living space, carports and a style that is more in keeping with the lifestyles of today’s retirees.
Specifically, the project includes the demolition of approximately 63 units, which will be replaced by an estimated 34 new, wood-framed cottages. The cottages will be a mix of single and duplex units with freestanding carports. The cottages will be larger and provide more living space than the previous housing units, and in some cases will include full basements. Additional site work will include new roadways, driveways, sidewalks, underground utilities, site lighting, and park-like landscaping.
“We have worked on many projects with Havenwood-Heritage Heights, but this is the most extensive, and one that will give the community more living space and a fresh new look and appeal,” said Jerry Kingwill, president of Cobb Hill. “We are excited to begin work and managing the process toward an expected completion date in the fall of 2014.”
