Highland Real Estate is proposing a multi-family, multi-generational housing development south of Mount Vernon on Newark Road. 

MOUNT VERNON — Another potential residential development is in the works, this one on the south side of the city.

Highland Real Estate is interested in developing slightly over 200 acres on Newark Road and plans to submit initial sketches to the city's Municipal Planning Commission soon. Highland will proceed with more detailed engineering specs if the commission approves the concept.

The developer, Highland Real Estate, plans to preserve the existing tree lines. A 1.5-mile perimeter walking path is also planned.
