A development large enough to accommodate a small city is moving ahead in southeast Alexandria across from the new high school near Lake Burgen.


Not everyone is welcoming it with open arms. Residents living near the lake are worried about the magnitude of the development and its impact on the lake.

LBR Properties is pursuing the development known as Stonemanor. It consists of two parcels, totaling 54 acres, and is located east of Pioneer Road (Highway 106).
