Two access points into the development will occur on Road 156, providing a circle drive connecting part of phase 1, and all of phases 2 and 4. Phase 3 will include 10 separate commercial buildings with 1 remaining lot for a stormwater retention ponding basin in the event of extreme rainfall. The total sf buildout for phase 3 will be 104,000. Phase 4, the final phase, will include 13 commercial buildings with 1 remaining lot for a second stormwater retention pond.
