Low elevation brought the need to truck in clay.
We did this for a month straight!


  1. Acquire foreclosed property by paying all liens.
  2. Clear area.
  3. Truck clay in to raise elevation for proper sewer construction.
  4. Create a lake.
  5. Build road, curbs and water construction.
  6. Install underground utilities 
  7. Partner with Ryan Homes to begin residential construction.

Despite extreme challenges,
GD3 Ventures is ahead of schedule
and below budget!

Foreclosure To Gold Mine

The city had previously foreclosed on the property after the original owners of the land fell behind on tax payments. City Council then determined to turn the area into a tax increment financing incentive district. Construction is ongoing and estimated to be completed in July of 2020.
