The Granite Falls Planning Board has voted in favor of a plan for a small housing development on Duke Street.

 

Rob Howard of Howard Real Estate said he plans to build 11 houses on a little more than an acre across Duke Street from Granite Falls Brewing Company just south of downtown. The development will be called Duke Street Cottages.

 

The neighborhood will have a private entrance and a pavilion surrounding a common area, Howard said.

 

The community will have sidewalks connected to downtown.

 

The projected cost of the houses will be $150,000-$200,000.

 

“The goal is to provide the home of the future, today,” he said. “Everyone deserves to live in the shade, with sustainable, healthy, durable, affordable and efficient housing.”

 

The board’s recommendation will go to the Granite Falls Town Council.
