JONESBORO– Infrastructure construction has begun for Greensborough Village, a 200-acre mixed-use development at Hilltop.
The Jonesboro City Council approved zoning and conceptual plans for the development in 2014, but after some initial clearing, nothing has happened on the property since.
Workers for KEG Construction began work on the site Wednesday, said Gary Harpole, a principal at Halsey Thrasher Harpole, the commercial real estate company that’s developing the land.
Work will include a major east-west worad to connect with Arkansas 351, some side streets, drainage improvements and installation of water, sewer and electric utilities.
All of the acreage for single family, multifamily, mixed-use, commercial, hospitality and office south of Greensboro Road will have access to streets, drainage and utilities at the end of construction. Work is scheduled to be completed by the end of summer, weather permitting, Harpole said.
He said 30 acres, or 15 percent of the total acreage, is under contract. Builders of single family homes are also preparing proposals for construction of that phase of development, Harpole said.
As many as 2,500 people could live on the property by the time construction is completed in seven to 10 years, developers said when the plan was announced.
