Construction

The team here at Uplands is anxious to begin vertical development of homes and public spaces. However, there is critical underground and horizontal infrastructure that must be built to support the new neighborhoods, retail, and commercial spaces that will make up the Uplands community. 

In total, Uplands is providing about $40 million in public improvements – including sewer, water, and storm drainage systems and road, traffic, and bike/pedestrian enhancements. 

We’re on track to receive administration approval from the city to begin construction this summer of 2023. This page will host the ongoing and upcoming construction updates, so be sure to check back often. We appreciate your patience with any inconveniences or temporary disruptions that may occur during this process.
