Older homebuyers will be the target market for 37 new units to be built as part of the latest part of Cornerstone of Centerville North.
Phase V of Cornerstone will be built on about nine acres in the northeast corner of the development off Brown Road near Interstate 675, city records show.
The development will not be age restricted, but will be marketed toward older buyers, said Robert Hall of Oberer Land Development.
The homes will include mostly duplexes and be priced in the $300,000 to $400,000 range, according to the city. Phase V is expected to start construction sometime this year, but no date has been set, a city official said.
It would be adjacent to Cornerstone Apartments, Dogwood Commons and other commercial and park elements of the Cornerstone development, according to city records.
Cornerstone is a 156-acre mixed-use development that also has retail, restaurant, hotel and medical office users.
Phase V “aligns with multiple goals and principles that create the vision, enhance pedestrian experiences – the hiker/biker trail connecting the park also goes through this development,” Centerville City Planner Mark Yandrick said.
“The economic health will be strengthened and the residential development will exhibit strong neighborhood qualities,” he added.

Phase V is the last site plan on Cornerstone North, Yandrick told Centerville City Council before it approved final development plans last week.
“I think we’ve really been pleased at how Cornerstone North has developed,” Centerville Mayor Brooks Compton said. “It’s really coming together fantastic.”
Three-bedroom homes are proposed to be single-story with a second-story option available, according to the plans.
Each unit will be about 2,100 square foot each, containing vaulted ceilings and gabled roofs that give the appearance of a second-story, according to plans.
The city council approval comes with 18 conditions approved by the planning commission. Those conditions are relatively minor and deal with on-site infrastructure and architectural details, according to the city.
The site north of the Wilmington Pike/Feedwire Road intersection includes an 8-foot asphalt hiker/biker path that transects the development and connects Brown Road and Cornerstone North Boulevard, records show.
The neighborhood will have two access roads - Belfast Drive and Kilkenny Court – from Brown, according to city records. Both will connect with Ellason Court, the other street in the plat.
Developers are working to expand the usable area of the 9 acres to 35%, the required amount, Hall said.
“We’re looking at some different ideas….perhaps push Ellason Court a few feet further north,” he said. “That has some minor impacts on some setbacks.”
Belfast and Kilkenny both would be 24 feet wide with no on-street parking, he said. Ellason would be 28 wide and allow parking on the street, Hall said.
