Building Mat-Su: Wasilla creek commons

WHAT: A two-phase development made up of about 150 lots on 110 acres along Trunk Road. The first phase is 77 lots, unbuilt, with roads, water and on-site septic, developer Jerry Neeser said. The subdivision has a water theme due to its creek-front location, Neeser said: Entry is on Tributary Avenue, there’s a Downstream Drive and an Upstream Avenue. That proximity to water also means the subdivision falls under new local requirements regarding flood hazard mitigation. Lots range from 30,000 square feet to 3.5 acres and from $60,000 to $150,000.

WHO: Developer is Neeser Construction Inc., an Anchorage firm. Neeser is doing all the work, chief executive Jerry Neeser said. The firm has worked on various school, military and public works projects and is working on the Anchorage Civic and Convention Center construction.

WHERE: Just south of North Marcell Loop, along Trunk Road.

WHY: The subdivision is near a planned intersection under the state’s Trunk Road realignment proposal, Neeser said. It’s also “right in the center of what’s going on” in the Valley — within a mile and a half of Mat-Su Regional Medical Center, close to Eagle River and Anchorage as well as Wasilla and Palmer, he said.

WHEN: Phase one is expected to hit the market in late October, Neeser said.
