Pappas Development has a Name: Berewick
(November 17, 2002)
The new development planned off Steele Creek Road west of I-485 now has
a name. It's Berewick--pronounced BEAR-wick.
The 1,000-acre business and residential development is expected to
include over 2,800 homes in various price ranges, 2 million square
feet of commercial space, and a 215 acre district park. The
development generally contains three parts. In the middle is the
170-acre town center, containing offices, shops, and restaurants.
Western and southern sections will contain various communities of
detached and attached residences. On the northeast side will be a
215 acre district park. (See
story.) A site also has been reserved for a future school.
The first major
construction project is a sewage plant, which is necessary to support
the other development. Residences will begin to be completed in late
2003, about the time sewer service will be available. The town
center is planned to be constructed in 2005. Also planned for 2005
is the reconstruction of the Steele Creek Road/Shopton Road West
intersection. A new road will be constructed from this intersection
north between the Masonic lodge and Baptist Church into the town center.
Dixie River Road will be realigned through the development. (See
story with a map on the Dixie-Berryhill thoroughfare plan.)
