Project Spotlight | Washington
The Villages project is a master-planned community development in Black Diamond, Washington. Once complete, The Villages will provide residential, commercial, office, retail, educational and recreational uses to the small city of Black Diamond.
In 2014, GBI was contracted to clear more than 100 acres of forest and mass grade the site. Now, in 2016, GBI is completing the initial phases of the development, which includes clearing and grading another 75 acres of land and bringing 11,000 linear feet of water main from offsite to the development. GBI is also constructing a sewer lift station, two residential plats that total 268 lots and more than 60,000 linear feet of onsite sewer, water and storm drain lines. In addition, GBI will be building a 4.5-million-gallon storm water holding pond and a 10.4-million-gallon storm water infiltration pond.
This is a small portion of the master development project, which will continue to expand over the next 10 to 15 years.
