The Lark Development

Just a block West of downtown, a new neighborhood concept will soon take flight. The Lark offers residents the convenience of downtown living with the privacy of a neighborhood. While the homes will be new, the concept of community living harkens back to a simpler way of life that’s making a major come back. The Lark will be Edmond’s first pocket neighborhood and has proven to meet the demands of the burgeoning downtown. 

Enamored by Edmond

Downtown Edmond’s charm caught the eye of local developer Matthew Meyers. His family temporarily took up residence in an apartment near downtown in 2018. On morning bike rides and meetings over coffee, Matthew couldn’t help but see the potential unfolding right before his eyes. Matthew decided to lay down roots and made Vault 405 coworking space the official place of business for Switchgrass Capital. Matthew joined the Edmond Visual Arts Council with the intention of adding interactive art to the blossoming downtown. As soon as work began on the railroad quiet zones, he decided to go all in, selling off other assets across the state to focus on downtown. The Lark is the first of five projects to be spearheaded by Matthew and Switchgrass Capital. 

A Community Built for Connection

The Lark prioritizes people over cars, connection over clutter. Front porches will spill onto a common green space with covered parking provided in an adjacent, but out-of-sight alley. Shared amenities include a tool shed, bike share program, herb garden, outdoor movie space, centralized mailboxes and common dining area. The community is designed with the intention of providing ample opportunities for connection.

The Lark is a good fit for those who are interested in abandoning a life of clutter in exchange for quality. Matthew was sure to point out that simple doesn’t mean vanilla, and small doesn’t denote a compromise on quality. The homes feature high ceilings, lots of light, luxurious bathrooms, and stunning kitchens. Matthew has partnered with husband and wife designer and builder duo, Trey and Brett McPherson of Stone Ridge Homes. Buyers can choose from several floor plan options like the Bluebird, Sparrow or Hummingbird and curated design packages.

Edmond Living Reimagined

Downtown Edmond has become a place to live, work and play. The Lark will allow residents to walk to work, grab coffee, lunch or dinner and take care of grocery shopping close to home. “As I look around downtown now and with even more development on the horizon, I would want to live here and I know others feel the same.” Matthew says. 

The first phase of The Lark is set for completion in Spring 2021. This phase will consist of 20 homes and is close to selling out. For those interested, a $5,000 refundable deposit will reserve a cottage. For more information visit www.edmondlark.com.
