Centra Homes Detached Townhome Development/Local Street Improvements

Coon Rapids-based Centra Homes is developing 136 one-level and two-level detached townhomes on 43 acres of formerly City-owned land generally between Egret Boulevard and Avocet Street. It is expected to take a few years to complete the entire development, with several homes completed by fall 2020. A handful of model homes are expected to be completed by July 2020. Multiple rambler and two-story floor plans will be available, ranging from about 1,400 to 2,300 square feet. The rambler floor plans will include walk-out, look-out, and slab-on-grade units. Prices are expected to start in the high $200,000s. For sales information, visit the Centra Homes web site. 

This project has involved removal of the frontage road on the south side of Coon Rapids Boulevard and realignment of several local streets in the area. Access to existing neighborhoods will remain open during the time of construction, but slight detours may take place at various times. Public street and utility work in this area is expected to be complete by fall 2020.

Coon Rapids Boulevard Improvements

The City is also working with Anoka County on improvements to Coon Rapids Boulevard in this area. The work includes replacement of asphalt pavement, curb and gutter work, access modifications, and a revised lane configuration. It also includes new pedestrian-scale lighting and landscaping along the corridor, along with a sidewalk on the north side of Coon Rapids Boulevard and a trail on the south side of the boulevard. Traffic signals at Avocet Street and Egret Boulevard will also be replaced as part of the project. Construction began in the spring of 2020 and is expected to wrap up in the fall of 2020. The City is also working to secure state and federal funding for a future pedestrian bridge to help connect the north and south sides of Coon Rapids Boulevard.
