Affordable Housing 

Ryan Companies and our partners continue our commitment to executing the vision of the Master Plan for Highland Bridge, which calls for 20% of the housing on site to be affordable, with half of that 20% being targeted to individuals and families at or below 30% of area median income.  

Project for Pride in Living, one of the non-profit affordable housing partners at Highland Bridge, is planning for their first development on site. Located along Mount Curve Avenue, the development will feature two buildings: 75 units geared towards affordable workforce housing with a mix of unit types and 60 units for women in the Emma Norton Program.

Construction Update

Our infrastructure work at Highland Bridge is underway and on schedule.  A few notable updates: 

Phase 1 mass earthwork is approximately 90% complete and will be completed yet this fall.

Phase 1 utility infrastructure including water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer are nearing completion. There is approximately 2.75 miles of watermain, 2.25 miles of sanitary sewer piping and 3.75 miles of storm sewer piping in the Phase I scope of work.

The Central Water Feature pond walls have been installed which equates to 2,050 lineal feet of  cast-in-place walls and footings.

The below grade stormwater filtration and storage structures will be set by the end of November. This below grade stormwater storage and filtration system, along with other open-air enhancements, ultimately connect to Hidden Falls Regional Park and the Mississippi River. The enhanced stormwater design reduces the runoff from Highland Bridge to the existing Hidden Falls Creek by as much as 98% in a 2-year rain event.
