A multi-million dollar development in Downtown Nexton is currently underway.
The $300 million development, which is being developed by Sharbell Development Corp. out of New Jersey, will include everything from restaurants, apartments, hotels and retail stores. In addition, outdoor amenities like walking trails and parks will also be available.
The development will cover over 99-acres in total between Sigma Drive and Brighton Park Boulevard.
Tom Troy, president of Sharbell Development Corp, said “Our intent with this project is to provide residents with their own version of a downtown where they can find everything they need, from groceries and dining experiences to fitness classes and boutiques, without having to ever get in their car.”
Construction on the development will occur in phases over the next five years, starting with an apartment complex that will offer units from studio apartments up to three bedrooms.
Officials are hopeful this development will continue to revitalize the area.
