Dreaming of living in Bluff Park? We can understand why and so does developer Lance Kitchens of CK Enterprises, LLC. Kitchens requested the final approval for the Smith Farm subdivision. However, he doesn’t plan to build the 44 approved houses, but hopes for home builders to buy the lots. Prices for the lots are expected to be $650,000 to $750,000.

For the Blackridge community, Scott Rohrer of Blackridge Partners, LLC received approval for 22 new homes. This will be part of the sixth phase of building for the neighborhood. If you want a water view, then you lucked out. Three to eight-acre lots will be available in Blackridge along the Cahaba River.

Townhomes galore on 280
