The Mountain Brook Zoning Board recently approved a measure that paves the way for new custom homes to be built in the city.
The board has approved a name change for the Pilgrim Place community on Montclair Road, which is being developed as Village Place.
Wedgworth Construction will redevelop the property to offer 13 energy-efficient custom homes ranging in price from $850,000 to $1 million.
The gated community features cul-de-sac lots that are close to schools, shopping and Crestline Village, said Mike Wedgworth, president of the company.
Wedgworth, who has been in the home development and building business since 1979, said his plans for the neighborhood include an updated entrance and landscaping along Montclair Road.
“It will create a sense of place for this highly-visible community,” he said. “We’re excited to have this venue to showcase our work.”
Because the community is so close to Crestline Village, Mountain Brook Village and English Village, Village Place was the ideal name, said Tracy Patton, a Ray & Poyner Properties realtor who is marketing the project.
Patton said “the timing is right” for the redevelopment of the community.
