Ribbon Cutting Marks New Residential Development in Oceola Twp.

7/11/14 - There was a time when residential development projects were being abandoned, homes were being foreclosed upon and building activity and permits were plummeting across Southeast Michigan and Livingston County. But that’s no longer the case as evidenced by not only the numbers but a new project along a development corridor in Oceola Township. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the new Maple Square development on Latson Road near M-59. The project is bringing both investment and a different type of residential housing option to the area, which combines the amenities of apartment and condo living with the experience of owning a home. Oceola Township Supervisor Bill Bamber tells WHMI the project is moving along rapidly and this is something new that will benefit the municipality, as every community needs a mix of housing options. The developments tend to attract empty young professionals and empty nesters. Friday’s ribbon cutting marked the first units becoming available and the project from Redwood Living is on track for completion this fall. Chief Administrative Officer Kristopher Conwill says they offer a type of living that's unique in the industry with a condominium feel. He says they tend to be a place where people who are renters by choice call home for a long time but also don't want to deal with all of the maintenance work typically associated with home ownership. A number of local community leaders and officials were in attendance at Friday's ribbon cutting, which was followed by model tours. (JM)
