Creekview homes may be done in August

Developers say they are moving forward on motel plans

Construction worker Robert Area looks over plans Thursday at the Creekview development in Hayden.

— The first section of Hayden’s Creekview development should be finished by about mid-August, developers Stefanus and Louis Nijsten said.

The segment includes one building with seven retail units on the first floor and eight condos on the second floor, and a set of six townhomes. In early April, all of the condos had been reserved.

“We’ve lost some of the reservations because they were really low-priced, and it was a time when people were just buying,” Stefanus Nijsten said. “We are getting more buyers, and these are people who are actually going to live there.”

Four townhomes, four condos and four retail slots are available, he said. The three-bedroom townhomes cost $310,000 to $320,000, and the one- and two-bedroom condos range from $180,000 to $205,000. Retail spots cost $120,000 to $300,000.

The development, which includes the Creekview Grill, sits on 3.21 acres south of U.S. Highway 40, east of Dry Creek and west of an alley between Fifth and Sixth streets. It is slated to include two more sets of five townhomes each, which are under construction. The Nijsten brothers hope to finish the whole project by the end of the year, Louis Nijsten said.

The development eventually could include a motel, Stefanus Nijsten said.

“We are having conversations with a party that would like to have a motel,” he said. “I’ve got a design for it, and right now, we’re basically in the contract phase where the job is going to get contracted and the price negotiated. The goal with that deal is to break ground this fall.”

Annette Hall is co-listing the units with Louis Nijsten through Mount Werner Realty. The retailers will include a tile and wood flooring shop, an appliance center and a sales office for the Creekview development.

The partners also are setting up a Mount Werner/Creekview office at 131 W. Jefferson Ave. in downtown Hayden. They signed a deal on that office Thursday and plan to open Tuesday, Hall said.

Hall said she thought both offices would keep busy. She said she is showing spaces at Creekview almost daily.

“We’re pretty proud of the project,” she said.

Louis Nijsten said he thought construction of the next 10 townhomes would move quickly.

“The buildings are so similar, it’s going to be easier to just get them done,” he said.

If all goes well, the crew could move on to construction of the motel during the winter, he said. Stefanus Nijsten still plans to move into one of the townhomes.

“Myself, I’m getting pretty excited about it, too,” he said. “It’s all taking shape. : I’m really looking forward to moving out there. It’s just another motivation to get it done.”
