Hunters Walk South approved for development

By LANCE ALLAN

The Daily News

Construction will start in late fall on a 35.2-acre planned residential development located on the east side of Germantown Road north of U.S. Highway 70.

Hunters Walk South will have 67 lots with homes averaging in size from 2,500 square feet to 3,000 square feet, said developer Angelo Lagonia.

Development cost for the lots hasnt yet been determined.

We havent really put a pencil to it, Lagonia said. At this point, we have estimates, but its too early to tell.

Lagonia hopes to have lots ready by early summer 2004.

The Bray-Davis Firm Inc. is the engineer for the project, a partnership between Lagonia and Ron Sklar.

The subdivision, which was approved last week by the Memphis City Council, is located in an agricultural (AG) zoning district in the Brunswick section of Shelby County within Bartletts annexation reserve.

Lots in the neighborhood start at 13,500 square feet. Minimum lot width is 90 feet, and overall density is 1.93 units per acre.

The development joins several projects already completed or underway in the area.

To the south of the site are the Brushy Creek Estate and Craven Haven subdivisions, both of which feature 2-acre or larger estate-size lots.

East of the development is the Hickory Estates subdivision, which features lots 3 acres and larger.

According to a city-county Office of Planning and Development staff report, the site currently is vacant, with natural features including mature trees and a drainage stream running east/west through the development.

Instead of replacing the stream with an underground drainage system, developers will make it a featured part of the development. A greenbelt of up to 50 feet on each side of the stream will feature a walkway that will run the length of the stream and intersect with Germantown Road.

Because of flood precautions, lots near the stream will be larger than others in the development.

To keep it safe against flooding, theres more green space on the back of the lots that back up to the creek, Lagonia said. Were leaving it natural, saving as many trees as we can.

The subdivision adds to existing planned developments Hunters Walk and Hunters Walk first addition, but with slightly smaller lot sizes. The 30-foot setbacks and 50-foot street widths found in those neighborhoods will continue into Hunters Walk South, providing a smooth transition from one development to the next.
