Crain’s Grand Rapids Business: Sable Homes completes first building in second-phase Harvest Meadows condo project in Leighton Township

On July 20, 2023, Sable Homes will celebrate the completion of the first building in the second phase of the Harvest Meadows condominium project, at Butternut Drive and 142nd Avenue in Leighton Township, near Wayland.

Sable Homes has completed the first few units in the second phase of a condominium development halfway between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

In a statement to Crain’s Grand Rapids Business, Sable Homes said it will host a July 20 ribbon cutting to celebrate bringing online the first four condos of the 100 units being added to the approximately 25-acre Harvest Meadows neighborhood. The project is located at Butternut Drive and 142nd Avenue in Allegan County’s Leighton Township, near Wayland.
The company completed phase one of the Harvest Meadows condos in August 2020, and all 50 units sold out that year.

Construction began on phase two in early 2021. The first of 28 planned buildings in phase two is now complete.

With units starting at $285,000, phase two — the final phase that’s planned, according to a spokesperson for Sable Homes — is expected to be finished in 2026.

The 2,242-square-foot condos are designed with two bedrooms, two baths with zero-step entry doors, a ground-level patio, and one- or two-stall garages.

“An important aspect of our mission at Sable Homes is to build quality housing for West Michigan families without pushing a hefty price tag,” said Sable Homes President John Bitely in a statement. “We take pride in watching families enjoy the homes we’ve built for them as they grow and live their lives year after year. The condo units at Harvest Meadows (give) potential new homeowners the opportunity to live comfortably and enjoy the conveniences of modern amenities, all while not being strapped to a high mortgage.”

The neighborhood will feature paved roads and easy access to U.S. 131. The condos will all feature Sable’s hybrid technology to provide homeowners savings on energy costs.

“We are excited to have Sable invest in our community,” said Steve Wolbrink, Leighton Township supervisor, in a statement. “The Harvest Meadows neighborhood has stood incomplete for many years and now offers an option for those wishing to become part of the greater Leighton Township community.”

Harvest Meadows was initially started about 20 years ago by another builder who completed 48 homes and left dozens of lots undeveloped. Since taking over the project, Sable has completed 38 more single-family homes and plans to build another 78. The single-family homes start at $315,000.
