Cascade Development Features Classic Style
GRAND RAPIDS — “Classic English-inspired cottages and gardens combined with the big city feel of Brownstones” is how the developer describes Cascade Township’s newest planned residential development, Turnburry of Cascade. Residency is slated for 2009.
According to a news release, the English cottage and Brownstone architecture highlight this project and new "green" building standards and energy efficient choices make Turnburry environmentally friendly.
Turnburry’s vertical architecture eliminates sprawl and allows for almost 70 percent of the site to be designated open space, according to developer Doug Maas. Designed to create an urban feel with a more compact physical plan, Turnburry encourages more social interaction and pedestrian activity. Turnburry will be located at the southwest corner of Burton Street and Kraft Avenue in Grand Rapids.The development is served by the Forest Hills School District.
Developer, Maas JNA Group, plans to construct 106 total single family residential units, consisting of 90 Brownstone condominium homes and 16 cottage condominiums. The cottages, from $350,000 will offer two different floor plans, while the Brownstones, from $240,000, will have three plans to choose from.
Maas JNA Group, is a collaboration of Denis Johnson (JNA) and Doug Maas of Retirement Living Management & Maas Development LLC. Maas Development currently owns and operates 12 retirement communities throughout Michigan.
