Manvel has much news in what is coming in the future, according to Manvel City Council.
The Las Vegas-based developers of the Meridiana subdivision have plans to expand into Manvel soon.
In 2010, the Council approved the developer’s plans, including a mechanism to reimburse the developer for their development and construction costs.
The developer decided to wait until 2017 to start the subdivision construction in Iowa Colony. Meridiana representatives are planning to meet with the city council during an upcoming regular scheduled meeting to provide an update.
The developers of the Manvel Town Center will be speaking at an upcoming city council meeting so they can provide a status update about the project.
The key anchor store of the Manvel Town Center is a grocery store with other big box stores planned in the development.
Representatives from the developer will provide more information about the timing of this 300+ acres commercial development planned at the intersection of Hwy. 288 and Hwy. 6.
At Bluewater Lakes, acceptance of sections 1, 2, and 4 – as well as the detention pond, sewer lift station and Pollard Boulevard is expected in May.
Bluewater Lakes received a six-month preliminary plat extension from the city council during a recent council meeting. The extension is for Sections 5 and Sections 6 will begin April 21.
The Lakeland Homes expansion is underway.
With the support of the PD&Z commission, the City Council recently approved a preliminary plat for Section 5 in the Lakeland subdivision. The plat is for a 17.4 acre-tract that will contain five blocks and 203 lots with 10 restricted reserves.
This is the final section of the Lakeland development and means the subdivision will increase to approximately 650 homes.
