The Landings

Fourth Avenue North and West River parkway

The city acquired this former railyard property in the late 1980s. In 1993, the city began contamination cleanup, totaling $1.6 million, to pave the way for an upscale housing project. Groundbreaking for Phase I of The Landings took place in 1995. Situated on 1,000 feet of riverfront frontage, the homes feature brick and stucco exterior, wrought iron fencing, large lots, historic street lighting and beautiful landscaping. Construction continues on this development, as the townhomes are in high demand.
