Hastings Development

Surrounded by over 600-acres of preserved park land and hardwood forest, Hastings is an 80-acre residential and retail development site described by Charter Homes as “a neighborhood whose natural beauty is the perfect canvas for your new life.”

Working closely with Charter, Gateway provided an integrated solution to convert the sprawling former location of Mayview State Hospital into a build-ready site that will support 500 homes. To create a true sense of a neighborhood, the development features the “Crossroads at Hastings,” a walkable retail area that includes locally owned businesses such as a coffee shop, athletic club, day spa, pet grooming service and more. The space also includes a senior-living community of 130 well-appointed apartment units.

Beginning in 2014, Gateway performed a complete survey of the entire site, encountering historical and archaeological artifacts of a colonial-age Native American settlement. The proposed development required city, county and state permitting, a process that Gateway is no stranger to managing. In this case, Gateway had already established close working relationships with each of the development’s neighboring townships, which ultimately led to efficient approvals that allowed the development of the site to begin.

More than the site survey, Gateway’s solution incorporated nearly all of Gateway’s practice areas, creating streamlined cohesion within the broader project solution. From geotechnical analysis, surveying and landscape architecture in the design phase, to site civil, municipal engineering, construction administration and inspection services in the build phase, the development continues to grow toward its fully developed goal with Gateway supporting Charter Homes with each new construction phase.
