Platte Center subdivision now ready for houses

September 8, 2018

PLATTE CENTER — Highland Addition has streets.

The streets were poured in the Platte Center subdivision last week.

Gehring Construction formed a convoy of trucks Aug. 29 as the north-south and east-west streets were formed.

Rod Hassebrook, developer, said people can pick out lots, but lots cannot be sold until the streets are paved for and the village is satisfied everything is in place.

He is hoping after October, lots can be sold, with construction to follow, possibly this fall or next spring.

“It’s looking good,” he said of the development. “It’s a long process.”

The subdivision is being built in phases, and the first phase includes 15 lots for houses and two lots for duplexes, equaling four homes.

The average lot size in the first phase ranges from 12,000 square feet to 14,000 square feet.

The town will receive the tax benefits while taking care of the maintenance of the water and sewer system and snow removal.

Obrist Construction put in the water and sewer lines earlier this summer.
