Housing developments abound in AbernathyHousing developments abound in Abernathyhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=63342013-09-23T10:31:00Z2013-09-16T00:00:00Z

ABERNATHY, LUBBOCK COUNTY - The 59-lot Parkview housing development is currently under construction, while construction plans are set for the Legacy Acres housing tract. Abernathy is located just north of Lubbock on I-27.

The Parkview neighborhood homes will range from 1,400 sf to 2,500 sf while prices will be in the $120,000 to $200,000 range, according to developer Stephen Qualls.

Construction is in early stages of nearby Buffalo Court, where sewer lines have been installed and other utility installment and street work is underway. Houses are anticipated to follow next.

When work on Buffalo Court approaches completion, developers will begin the third phase of the project — Elk and Antelope Courts.

Most houses in the new neighborhood and the rest of Abernathy are selling fairly quickly, said Rhetta Riley, a local realtor.

About four blocks north of Parkview, construction will begin in September 2013 on Legacy Acres, a separate home development project.

“We can see with the business expansion in North Lubbock and the gas and oil play that is starting in Abernathy — plus wind and solar energy projects and the planned expansion of Antelope Station — there’s going to be a tremendous housing shortage in Abernathy,” said Qualls.

“We’re continually building — we’ve used all our lots, and it’s time to add some more,” said City Manager Mike Cypert.
