MIDDLETOWN, NY-Construction is expected to begin soon on Woodside Knolls, a 261-unit housing complex on Cottage Street here. Baker Residential purchases a 120-acre site across from Orleans Homebuilders’ Wildflowers adult community project site where it plans to construct 216 townhome units and 45 single-family homes.

Brett Tinney, NJ/NY director of sales for Baker Residential, which is headquartered in Pleasantville, says site work is scheduled to begin in a few weeks on the venture. No financial details on the land purchase or the projected cost of the development were released.

“Orange County has long been a popular destination for first-time buyers, young families and empty nesters from northern New Jersey and New York City who have been priced out of the escalating housing markets in Manhattan and Bergen, Morris and Essex counties,” Tinney says. “They are turning to these suburban areas where newly constructed homes are still available at affordable prices.”

Single-family homes will be priced from the mid $300,000s, while the townhomes will be initially priced from the mid $200,000s. The median single-family home price in Orange County in May 2007 was $319,900, according to statistics from the Orange County Association of Realtors. Planned recreational amenities at Woodside Knolls will include a pool, tennis court, recreation center and a half basketball court.

Baker Residential is a division of Baker Cos. Inc., which has regional offices in Danbury, CT; Morris Plains, Princeton, NJ; Philadelphia; Charlotte and Raleigh, NC. Baker Residential has built more than 14,000 homes in 106 communities on the East Coast.
