The Hailey Planning and Zoning Commission approved on Monday a preliminary plat application for a 26-unit townhouse development at Sweetwater Community in Woodside subdivision.

    “We are ready to move forward with our building permit,” said Momentum Development Group Project Manager Matt Watson.

    The units will be the latest expansion of Sweetwater Community, which was planned in 2005 as a 421-unit, $200 million housing development on 20 acres of land straddling Countryside Boulevard. To date, 71 townhouse units have been completed and sold. The property is subject to a planned-unit-development agreement established in 2005 and updated most recently in 2012.

    The new development phase on 2.4 acres will consist of 13 three-story duplex homes on the corner of Shenandoah Drive and Maple Leaf Drive. Each of the 26 units will be about 2,796 square feet in size.

    Momentum Development Group President Mike Bradshaw said in January that the individual units would sell from $355,000 to $380,000 each, available for purchase sometime this summer.

    The new duplex units will border a park and receive amenities under the Sweetwater Homeowners Association, including access to a $2.5 million commons building, with a theater, kitchen, pool and spa, and athletic facility.

Bradshaw said his partnership company, Sweetwater Community LLC, owns the entire remaining 12 acres of the original Sweetwater PUD. He said he is also working on development of an additional 70 units on a 1,400-foot-long parcel on the west side of Shenandoah Drive.

Bradshaw said an additional parcel that could accommodate about 28 units to the north of Sweetwater Park could be ready for development in two years.
