Dirt Work Starts On New Villas of Holly Brook Facility

Ground work has started on the new multi-million dollar Villas of Holly Brook facility on Mt. Carmel's westside. Mayor Mayor Bill Hudson announced just before Christmas that Unique Homes based in Charleston, Illinois will build a multi-million dollar facility west of the Super 8 hotel on outer West 9th Street. The company has purchased property from Haase Farms for the facility that will employ 45 full time and 25 part time employees. Crews have begun the dirt work on the property. No timetable has been announced as to actual construction will begin and the facility will open.
