Work is now underway on the new "Green Pastures" housing development near Latoka Drive and County Road 45 in west Alexandria.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held June 22. About 35 people from city officials to the general public attended the event.

Doug and Joan Wenzel's development will build 28 market-rate townhomes and a three-story, 56-unit apartment complex. The Alexandria City Council unanimously approved the planned unit development at its Feb. 26 meeting.

Although the homes are called townhomes, the consultants for the project, Hagstrom Engineering of Alexandria, refers to them as single family homes. They are stand-alone units with attached garages.

The development will have a large amount of common green space consisting of pockets of tuft areas and native plantings.

Also, two wetlands encompass eight acres of the center of property, which will be enhanced with vegetation. There will be benches for seating and a small public pocket park for users to enjoy.
