GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- A new Grand Island housing development promises to be the next community where neighbors become family. 

With a diverse range of housing options including condos, rowhouses, and single-family properties, Highland North vows to offers a lifestyle experience. 

Developer Amos Anson said he aims to make housing attainable and provide a wide variety of options. 

“I think it’s very important to have that," Anson said. "Otherwise, you’re missing if you don’t have something that doesn’t fit into a first-year school teacher's budget, which like our single bedroom condos. If you don’t have those things, then you’re missing those people.”

The designs of the neighborhood include a dog park/community space, butterfly garden, bike trail, water feature, and small commercial district. The district will also provide opportunities for office space, retail businesses, and food-truck-sized eateries. 

The 25-acre development is located off Independence Ave., just south of Highway 2. There are 140 lots.

For now, lots start at $22,000 and homes start at $291,000.

This is a five to seven year project.
