A 200-acre planned unit development at the intersection of U.S. 61 and La. 964 in Zachary is set to go before the city-parish Planning Commission in December.
Southern Lifestyle Development — which also is developing the Settlement on Shoe Creek in Central, Conway in Gonzales and Atwater on River Road — has submitted plans for Templeton Ridge subdivision.
Templeton Ridge will have 692 single-family homes spread across a 128-acre site, along with a pool house/amenity building, walkways and a bike path.
“Zachary attracted our attention with its strong demographics, solid retail growth, great school system and wonderful sense of community,” Bailey said in an email. “I was fortunate to have a great piece of property brought to me which has fantastic access to both Baton Rouge as well as Zachary.”
Plans are for homes in Templeton Ridge to be priced in the $200,000 to $300,000 range. If all goes well, construction of roads and other infrastructure will begin in mid- to late 2018, with homes coming online toward the end of 2019.
The full build out for the development will take 8 to 10 years, Bailey said.
The Planning Commission is set to vote at its Dec. 18 meeting on changing the comprehensive land-use plan from rural to residential neighborhood and the concept plan for Templeton Ridge.
