The Cove at Turkey Creek sees growth


The creators of the Colonial Pinnacle Development at Turkey Creek are developing a housing addition near their retail lifestyle center.

Turkey Creek Land Partners is building The Cove at Turkey Creek, an upscale housing addition behind the Regal Cinemas Pinnacle18 theater.

Jim Nixon, a partner in Turkey Creek Land Partners, said they have 74 lots set up in the 35-acre development.

“Most of the lots average eighty feet by one twenty,” Nixon said.

Phil Cobble of Realty Executives is handling the sale of some of the sites in the development.

“So far we’ve sold about twenty-two lots out of the seventy-four,” Cobble said.

Cobble said the lots that have been sold went to four builders. Cobble is representing the homes being built by Construction Planners Inc. and Harrigan Homebuilders.

“The homes will average about thirty seven hundred square feet,” he said.

The average price, he added, would run about $850,000.

“The area will have a club house and a pool,” Cobble said. “The homes will have comprehensive ground maintenance, so owners won’t have to worry about lawn maintenance ever again. The cost for that is paid through homeowner association dues.”

Cobble said the appliances and interior design may vary slightly due to the different builders, but in general all the homes should have stainless steel amenities.

Nixon said gas, water and electricity would be available in the homes as well as fiber optic connections for Internet, telephone and television through TDS Telecom.

Cobble calls the development a concept-driven neighborhood. Situated in the middle of Turkey Creek’s three miles of upscale shopping and fine dining, the community is a new brand of optomism.

Homes at The Cove at Turkey Creek will have verandas and private courtyards.

Other endeavors

Nixon said Turkey Creek Land Partners also has plans for a third phase of development for the Colonial Pinnacle project. It would take place on 20 acres of land between Belk and Gander Mountain, a project which Nixon predicts would open in September.

“I was just in there [Gander Montain] and they are putting up shelves and stocking items,” Nixon said.

The store is under construction and Phillip Kim, director of marketing for Gander Mountain, said a tentative opening date of Tuesday, Sept. 19 has been set.

“We’re planning on having a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Sept. 29,” he said. “We’ll have our C-E-O Mark Boher there. These are generally three-day events over a weekend. We give out hats, T-shirts and water bottles to the first two hundred fifty guests each day.”

There will also be opportunities to earn extra bargains back in the archery department. Kim said customers would have the opportunity to shoot arrows at balloons of different colors. Each color balloon represents a different percentage discount. A red balloon, for example, might represent 20 percent off a purchase.

“Customers generally have a lot of fun,” Kim said.

Kim said the store would carry the Columbia line of clothing as well as the Three Forks Ranch Edition merchandise for fishing, hunting and camping.Three Forks recently named Gander Mountain as the sole distributor for its merchandise.

This new line of top-quality merchandise includes fly rods and reels; and a complete line of fly fishing clothing and waders.

and limited edition custom rifles.

; big game and upland hunting apparel; leather and canvas luggage; and wall tents and camping equipment.

Nixon and partner, John Turley were the architects behind the Colonial Pinnacle development, a partnership between them and Colonial Properties Trust Retail.
