This construction update will provide an overview of the progress at the Newbury residential site as well as give an update on the new 84 Lumber site at Newbury Market. Work in the residential area has mostly focused on final grading and utility projects as vertical construction is set to begin.
Please consult the site maps below as a reference to photo location and direction.
(Point 1, Newbury)
We’ll start this update with a view from the top of the Newbury site. On the right side of the photo are the northernmost lots in the development, while on the left you can see the fresh pavement of the second cul-de-sac.
(Point 2, Newbury)
Amongst the lots on the right side of the first photo, Stambrosky Homes has begun site work for a Manor Home. This is the first lot to reach this stage and many more are set to take this step in the coming days.
The soil being excavated from the front of this low-side lot is being moved to the back and saved for future leveling purposes.
(Point 3, Newbury)
Here is a look at the cul-de-sac from street level, notice the Stambrosky Homes back-hoe at work on the left side of the shot.
(Point 4, Newbury)
Adjacent to the cul-de-sac are a series of Park home lots. As described in previous updates, the slope on these lots will allow homes to feature walk-out basements.
(Point 5, Newbury)
Across the street from these Park home lots will be a variety of home types, which can be seen here. Cottage homes will border the street, while Carriage and Courtyard homes will create a community as you move further into the middle of the development.
(Point 6, Newbury)
This photo was taken along the site drive and details much of the utility work. The orange and gray tubing houses the cable, telephone and electrical lines, and as you can see the trench holding these lines has already been backfilled. The black pipe along the bottom of the photo is part of the stormwater system, as is the gray inlet structure sitting on the road. The empty trench will soon be home to the gas line as the site crew continues to work their way up the hill.

Here is some pipe that has yet to be placed in a utility trench.
(Point 8, Newbury)
This photo was taken about halfway down the site drive and provides a great look at the views that will be a staple of Newbury.
(Point 9, Newbury)
Further down the site drive, a small excavator was putting some finishing touches on the backfill of this utility trench.
(Point 10, Newbury)
Before jumping over to Newbury Market, here is a look at the site drive as it intersects with Presto Sygan Road. The gray building located on the left of the shot is our sales center, which is currently open. We encourage you to stop by and get a better idea of the vision of Newbury or contact a sales representative for a more in-depth meeting.
(Point 1, Newbury Market)
As we wait for the surcharges to completely solidify the ground in the central area of Newbury Market, the construction of the new 84 Lumber has gotten underway. Above, you can see the beginning stages of the foundation for the showroom and office building.
(Point 2, Newbury Market)
Opposite the office will be parking, a warehouse and two large covered storage locations. The steel located on the left of this shot will be erected shortly as the footers for these structures have already been poured.
(Point 3, Newbury Market)
The first photo of this group provides a look at part of the footer for the warehouse. The second photo shows the stormwater pipe that will transport run-off from the top of the retaining wall.
(Point 4, Newbury Market)
The retaining wall will help to stabilize the slope and control the stormwater run-off along Presto Sygan Road. The compactor located on top of the wall is working the pack the backfill after being placed by the excavator seen in the second photo.
(Point 5, Newbury Market)
Here is a view of the entire lower portion of the new 84 Lumber site.
(Point 6, Newbury Market)
This update comes to a close with a panoramic photo taken from the edge of the 84 Lumber site looking at the rest of Newbury Market. As the surcharge time reaches completion, we will begin to see some more work on the retail portion of Newbury.
