Groundbreaking was held for the new Hillwood H.S. in Bellevue. The $100 million project on 274 acres at 8001 Highway 70 South will be 3 stories tall in sections, and will serve 1,600 students.  Hastings is the architect.  Messer Construction is the contractor.  An Aug. 2023 opening is planned.

Wow!  Really 274 acres? What are the minimum land reqs for schools in Davidson? Looks mostly wooded. Conservation easement doesn’t apply here but any commitment from MNPS to keep the remaining land undeveloped? Or is that slated for a park?

It used to be a church, the undeveloped land has trails and such. It's very hilly but could support a subdivision like Saddle Ridge. Given that Metro is moving Hillwood HS six miles away from Hillwood expressly to sell the high-value land and pad their budget I wouldn't expect them to keep this for long. I missed the public meetings though so not sure what they promised.

Poplar Bend will be an 11 building, 329 unit affordable residential project at 0 Newsome Station Rd. at McCrory Lane. I'm guessing the structures will each be at least 3 stories.  ECG McCrory, LP is the developer.  No word on the architect or contractor.  

Here is a diagram I found online:

Good to see they're keeping the wall, but I have the same concerns as with Giarratana's Alcove tower on Church with that stone wall... how long will it hold the earth behind it? If it were to shift or collapse, then what would that do to the building?  More of a concern with this project than with the tower.  I'm sure the pilings will keep the building from being compromised, but the road behind the wall looks very iffy!

it is only a matter of time before more traffic lights and cross walks pop up along centennial, especially given the population density is going to go through the roof with all apartment complexes. I would contact Mary Carolyn and ask her what the city's plans are.

Sometime in the last two weeks or so, it would seem that the intersection of Centennial and 51st has been changed, though not in the way I was expecting. They created a slip lane for turning right when approaching southbound on 51st Ave N. This would probably mostly benefit oil trucks, I would imagine. The crosswalk is therefore now split into two legs with the triangular island in between. I'll try to grab a photo. I didn't see any other changes to the intersection at a glance.

These are turning out great, with the nice little crown. Love the concrete construction.

Agreed. Speaking of concrete: I wonder what impact the dramatic surge in lumber prices has had in building cost calculus for concrete vs timber for the ubiquitous 3 - 6 story apartment/condo construction?
