Deerfield Estates construction to begin in Union

UNION Construction of the first house in a new subdivision here is scheduled to begin Monday, and an open house for the lots is set for Friday.
Co-owner Rex Germany said the 200-acre subdivision called Deerfield Estates will be the third for the Union area. Jerry Cooley and Bill McCann are also co-owners. The subdivision is backed by NBC Bank of Starkville and the design and layout is by Engineering Plus.
Germany said he and the other owners decided to build in Union because they feel it's "poised to pick up a lot of growth in the next couple of years."
Philadelphia is growing with recent expansions to the resort casino and Union will fall into the Nissan plant's "Tier 1" supply zone meaning goods and services can be at the Nissan plant from Union in an hour.
People from the Meridian area are calling him, Germany said. With a commute of 26 minutes and Highways 19 and 15 on the Mississippi Department of Transportation's schedule for four-laning, more people may soon have the option of living in Union and working in Meridian.
Located about a mile west of Union on Highway 492 West, the subdivision will be built in three phases, Germany said.
In the first phase, 18-20 of the subdivision's 2 1/2- to 3-acre lots will be completed. The second phase, scheduled to begin in 18 months, will see another 15-20 lots developed, and about 15 more will be built in the third phase. The subdivision should be complete within five years, Germany said. Lots are priced at $25,000.
He said the subdivision is built on an eight-acre lake created for the subdivision. It's stocked with fish now and boating is allowed, but outboard motors are not.
The subdivision has city water, power and gas and fire protection. Mirrored after Meridian's Briarwood Estates, it has restrictive covenants such as regulations on required square footage, fencing and additional buildings on each lot.
Germany said two lots are sold and he has commitments on two others. The open house is set for Friday, 1 p.m.- 3 p.m. For more information, call 482-0990 or (800) 786-4762.
