The projected $7.5 million development will add 84 affordable one, two and three bedroom apartments to the community.  Phase I of Meadowlark Place, totaling 120 apartments, unveiled its first units this past June and will deliver its final building on October 1.  Phase II is projected to be completed in spring 2013. Meadowlark Place features in-unit washers/dryers, designer appliances, patios, accent paint colors and spacious closets as well as state-of-the-art amenities including a clubhouse, fitness center, business center, media room, splash pad and detached garages. 

“As Phase I of Meadowlark Place wraps up, we are excited to break ground and move right into Phase II construction,” stated Saddoris.  “Leasing was well ahead of construction throughout Phase I, exemplifying the need for rental housing in the Grimes community.  We have no doubt the same will hold true for the second phase and are proud to continue investing in Grimes.”

Meadowlark Place is being built by Hubbell Construction Services and is managed by Hubbell Property Management.  For more information, visit
