A new multi-use development that will be smaller but similar to River Ranch and Sugar Mill Pond is in the works in Scott.

The Advocate is reporting the unnamed development was announced by Robert Daigle, co-owner Southern Lifestyle Development, at Thursday night’s Scott City Council meeting. Daigle is also co-owner of Cottage Developers, the company he owns with his son, Jordan Daigle, that was established to build smaller scope developments like this one.

Daigle says it will have a layout similar to that of River Ranch.

“The town center revolves around a town square, which is the heart and soul of the community. On the town square we’ll have three story mixed use buildings with some commercial on the bottom floor, residential on the second and third levels, and then the highest density residential product comes off of the town center, so you transition to a commercial to high density residential and then as you get away from the town center the residential becomes larger lots larger homes,” says Daigle.

The development will be built along the new Apollo Road Extension, which will run from Old Spanish Trail to Rue du Belier. It will be built on 78 acres near Provost Road and will have a mix of differing homes, apartments, commercial and office space all around a central town square.

Current plans show around 150,000 square feet of commercial spaces, about 200 condominiums or apartments and more than 200 single family homes.

The expected timeline for the project is about five years.

“I would love to be in the ground by the end of the year putting in infrastructure with home construction taking place at the end of next year. The entire project will be fully built out in four and a half to five years from today,” says Daigle.
