‘Millwood Landing’ coming to Hwy. 532

By Paige Nash

Chad Still, owner of Timberland Services and Micah Hanson, Senior Vice-President at B1 Bank, are partnering to bring Webster Parish a new 52-lot subdivision.  

Hanson and Still have been working alongside each other since 2008 when they began a real estate holding company. Throughout the years, they have purchased and sold several properties. With the housing market in Minden being so limited, they decided to play a role in solving this issue.  

A new lumber mill that is also under construction in Taylor, Louisiana is something that both Hanson and Still feel will spur economic growth in the Minden area. As a way to show recognition for the positive impact this new industry will have here in the city, they chose to name the subdivision “Millwood Landing.” 

Millwood Landing Subdivision will be located on Highway 532 between Interstate 20 and Highway 80. 

“The property location was chosen due to its proximity to the City of Minden and its ease of access to Interstate 20, allowing homeowners who may work either to the east or west of Webster Parish a quick commute each day,” said Hanson. 

This property is still considered Minden but will be outside of the city limits. This may be a huge plus for homeowners who want to enjoy all that Minden has to offer without having to deal with the high utility costs within the city limits.  

According to Hanson, electricity will be provided by Entergy. CenterPoint Energy will be providing natural gas, while Dixie Overland Water System will be providing water throughout the subdivision.   

The plan right now includes 52 lots ranging in size from 1 to 2 acres with trees, and an elaborate entrance with asphalt roads throughout. The plans include green areas and a small family park, as well.  

“These lots lay extremely well, giving homebuilders many options for house styles and sizes,” said Still.  

Purchasers will have the option to use their own contractors although plans must be approved by the Architectural Control Committee before construction can begin. Hanson and Still have also been in talks with several local builders who are interested in lots for spec house construction.  

In these instances, builders construct move-in ready homes that are usually up with current trends, upgrades and amenities to appeal to buyers in a way that they will sell easily for profit.   

The project is currently in its final planning stages and at this time there is not an exact estimated completion date. They are under an agreement with Benton and Brown to complete the road construction on the property weather permitting. Once it begins, it is expected to be completed within 60 to 90 days.  

After the road construction is completed, the lots will then be surveyed and available for sale.  

Many have already shown interest in building on the property.

“We have a list of potential buyers to contact on a first come, first serve basis,” said Hanson.  

A draft of the Millwood Landing Covenant agreement is in the works and will include regulations that will preserve and improve the properties within the subdivision in a way that they will hold their value, making them saleable for the foreseeable future.  

“Our intentions are to develop a clean, safe and family-friendly atmosphere for homeowners of all ages,” said Hanson.  

If you may be thinking about building in Minden, please contact either Hanson or Still to discuss your options. They are available to give tours of the site to anyone before work begins or answer any questions that potential buyers may have.
