Check Out the Latest Prairie Hill Site Plan!

This plan shows the commonhouse (turquoise) which will include 4 small apartments; four stacked fourplex flats (green and yellow); six duplexes (blue and violet); four townhouse apartments (brown); making 36 units in all.

We're so excited to break ground in the spring!
