Woodstock City Council has unanimously put their stamp of approval on the zoning request of Windsong Properties for the proposed Garden Street Project. Located just off Main Street in Downtown Woodstock, Garden Street will bring 33 new homeowners to the city.
“We are very excited to get rolling with this project,” states Steve Romeyn, Managing Partner at Windsong Properties. “We feel the time is right and the location is excellent for our next project.” Situated on the corner of Rope Mill Road and Rusk Street, just two blocks north of Town Lake Parkway (Arnold Mill Rd.), Garden Street is within easy walking distance of the happenings in downtown Woodstock. Rapidly becoming a cultural hub, Woodstock will have plenty to offer new residents.
Proposed plans for downtown Woodstock include the relocation of the successful Towne Lake Arts Center; the creation of a visual arts center on Elm Street; 60 miles of Greenprints walking trails and the opening of many more shops and eateries on Main Street. Currently, downtown offers delicious restaurants, unique shops and a yoga studio. With the growing collection of shops and businesses, homeowners will find themselves located within walking distance of a wide variety of ways to relax.
The next step for the Garden Street project include engineering and redevelopment of the land. In addition, focus groups are being conducted with prospective buyers to finalize the product offerings. “No one knows better then our buyers what they want in a home. We like to listen to what they are saying in order to create the best product possible,” states Steve. “This type of research before hand insures we have a great product that people can really see themselves living in; which is essential in the current real estate market.”
Garden Street will feature a mix of single story ranch homes featuring both front and rear garages. The topography the property will allow for the construction of a handful of ranch homes with basements as well. “As we progress, we will know more of the specifics of what we are going to offer,” comments Steve. “Right now we have to work out the topography of the development and create the product to match.”
The city council’s unanimous approval provides an additional vote of confidence to an already predicted successful project. With a location so close to the old town feel being created in Woodstock, Garden Street is poised to become the place to live.
