Mission Boulevard project launches to new heights in Fayetteville
Construction crews recently began digging a retention pond and moving a mound of dirt developers of the long-abandoned Ruskin Heights subdivision left behind nearly a decade ago on a site south of Mission Boulevard. A sign posted on the property, across from Westwood Gardens and about a half-mile west of Crossover Road, proclaimed last week a new development called Mission Heights, is "opening in 2016." "I think it's really hitting the market at a time when the pendulum is finally swinging back from the downturn," said Lawrence Finn, managing partner of East Mission Boulevard LLC, the developer of the project. East Mission's plan for the entire 29 acres is unclear. The company is starting with 63 detached dwellings and six row houses on about 16 acres in the interior of the site. Developers plan to have the row houses and a dozen of the detached houses available for sale next year.
