Homes to start surrounding Gold Hill Mesa community center soon

       As the 20,000-square-foot community center takes shape at Gold Hill Mesa, observers of the property are waiting for the first homes to appear. Look for this to start happening in “three to four weeks,” according to project spokesperson D. Wendal Attig. He said that “administrative delays” have slowed the start of construction by John Laing Homes.
       The development has city approval for 168 homes in Filing 1, just north of Lower Gold Camp Road. The homes will be built in the area near the center, named the Exchange Building, on which construction began last summer.
       “Barring any more weather delays, it should be ready for occupancy by the end of November,” Attig said.
       The first occupant is to be the Gold Hill Mesa development group itself, which currently leases space in an office building on Eighth Street.
       In addition, the Exchange Building has about 5,500 square feet of office space available, according to project development manager Bob Willard. No tenants have yet signed on, although a coffee shop is expected to open next spring, he said.
