Payne Family Homes is proud to join McKelvey Homes in building at The Preserve, a community-friendly residential neighborhood on approximately 70 acres of surplus land at Resurrection Cemetery.
During a recent informational meeting at Affton High School, preliminary development plans were presented to the neighbors and the surrounding community with the intent of gathering feedback and to address any questions or concerns about the project before submitting it to St. Louis County Planning and Zoning Commission and the St. Louis County Council for their consideration.
“We are proud to be part of the efforts to preserve the natural beauty of this highly sought after site while bringing Affton a truly spectacular new residential community,” said Ken Kruse, President of Payne Family Homes.
The new community, named The Preserve, will include the preservation of more than 20 acres of existing trees and common ground to maintain the natural beauty of the site. The Preserve will feature walking trails, pocket parks, and two stocked lakes. Several agencies have been consulted for strategies to enhance the butterfly, bee, and bird populations on the property. The builders plan to erect both a bird sanctuary and bee pollination area to protect and enhance the current wildlife in the proposed community.
Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of St. Louis has a proven history of working with the Missouri Department of Conservation on efforts to protect and enhance the wildlife habitat throughout the metropolitan area. Catholic Cemeteries is pursuing the creation of a nature preserve area, adjacent to The Preserve, to present an additional 23 acres of wooded area bordering Shrewsbury Creek.
Designed for 190 home sites, The Preserve offers new homebuyers a chance to build in one of four distinct villages: the Estates, the Manors, the Glen, and the Villas. Each village will offer a separate series of homes, providing the housing market a wide variety of quality home styles and sizes, ranging from villas to luxury homes – all at an affordable price.
With an estimated completed value of $80 million, this addition to the Affton community will create numerous jobs for the construction industry and generate approximately $1.3 million in additional tax revenue to the county—including the school and fire districts–per year.
