Grant Park Development, just south of Waukee High School, has transformed what once was cornfields into one of Waukee’s hottest neighborhoods for professionals, young families and the retired. Perfectly situated just west of the future Alice’s Road corridor and two blocks from the new middle school, the high demand for housing in the area and the future economic growth slated for Alice’s Road makes the neighborhood not just friendly, but also a sound investment.

With an average sale price this year-to-date of $233,938, the new construction homes in Grant Park are targeted to moderate to upper income families and individuals. Most of the vacant lots have already been snatched up by custom builders, in fact, there are no lots currently for sale. For example, Mark Behr with Behr Construction currently has two proposed homes on the market and plans to build more. Behr says he has invested in the neighborhood because of the highly desired walk-out lots, the quality of building and diversity of builders, as well as the history of sales.
