The first buildings are under construction at Hampstead, the 416-acre, 1,800-home development along Taylor Road. Office and retail tenants will occupy the first two buildings, which have a total of about 64,000 square feet and will cost a combined $13.6 million. The first residential buildings will start going up in early 2008 and should be ready by the end of next summer.

Anna Lowder and Harvi Sahota, who most recently developed lofts in Old Cloverdale, plan to move their office to Hampstead. As co-directors of design and development for Hampstead, they expect it to take up to 15 years to build out.

Work is now well underway on the first two buildings in the Hampstead traditional neighborhood development. Hampstead's High Street will run between the buildings, and will lead to 150 homes as part of phase one. Hampstead will eventually have around 1,800 homes, ranging in price from $150,000 to $1 million.

According to developers Anna Lowder and Harvi Sahota, the first two buildings at Hampstead, with 64,000 sq ft of class A office space, will be finished in October and all of the professional office space on the second floors has been leased. Leasing of the retail spaces is underway, with a couple of restaurants and a gym already signed up.

Home construction is set to begin this month, with 36 homes in a mix of large homes, starter homes and townhouses. The first phase will include four or five blocks of buildings.

Good urbanism -- the parking lot behind one of the main buildings is in the interior of the block, with space reserved for buildings facing the streets around the block.

Looking at the more zoomed out map, are the lighter gray lots at the right side existing homes or lots included in Hampstead? The lighter gray color is not on the legend is why I ask. I like the density and amount of greenspace of this project. The commercial building is perfect.

If I understand it right the grayed out areas in the master plan (first image) represent the second and third phases of development. The part in color is the first phase that's under construction now.
