McBride Homes, one of the largest privately owned companies in the St. Louis region, is moving forward with plans for a major housing development in Manchester. Elite Development Services, which is a joint venture comprised of McBride Homes and J.H. Berra Construction Co., plan to begin construction later this year.
The $33 million development will see 60 new single-family homes constructed at a site near Manchester Road and Highway 141. The 19.7 acre site was recently approved for rezoning by the city of Manchester, paving the way for Elite Development to begin construction.
Zoning requirements have changed the original plan for the site, which was to build a 250-unit apartment complex. McBride and the city of Manchester were able to come to an agreement on the single-family home development as being more in line with the needs of the area. Elite Development will be constructing homes ranging from 1,570 to 3,000 square feet. The projected price range is between $400,000 and $700,000.
McBride homes has stated that the project has already generated a lot of interest since gaining the zoning approval. There are already 83 names on the waitlist for the development which will be called Arbors at the Highlands.
