Another development in Branson...
This just in from the Branson Daily News -
A $300 million development is getting under way soon in northern Branson.
At a Branson Planning & Zoning meeting Tuesday, the commission gave initial approval of a planned development in Branson Hills that will include 800 homes, senior housing, retails stores and a golf course. According to Rick Huffman, managing partner of Branson Hills Development Company, LLC, the development will respond to heavy demands from the community.
"We've had an enormous response, just from those who are already in the Branson community and Springfield," Huffman said.
The development, which will get under way as soon as December, will be developed in three phases and feature homes that range in price from $150,000 to $2 million.
"It's one-and-a-half miles from Branson Landing," Huffman said. "It's right by (U.S. 65) so it's an easy trip to Springfield; there's going to be new shopping close by at Target and Home Depot; it's close to schools and the new recreation center. It's a community place."
