Three commercial projects and 18 new homes started between Feb. 7 and Thursday bring almost $4 million in construction work to Killeen.

Killeen issued two commercial building permits last week to Wylie-based D R Associates, a general contractor, according to a permit report.

The 9,100-square-foot buildings will be located at 4501 E. Rancier Ave. and 4102 Watercrest Road. Construction costs were estimated at $358,000 each.

The contractor’s office confirmed the building projects, but the construction manager was unavailable Monday to comment about site details.

A 5,555-square-foot space is being remodeled at 2100 S. W.S. Young Drive, Suite 1004, in Killeen at a cost of $240,000, according to the permit report.

Killeen issued permits to eight home builders for the construction of 18 new homes with costs ranging from $105,000 to $207,000 per home.

Harker Heights-based Carothers Homes was granted four permits for properties on Traditions Drive. Gatesville-based Tippit Homes received three permits to build new homes on Cosper Creek Drive.

Other homes are being built on Greyfriar Drive, Alabaster Drive, Serpentine Drive, Nyla Drive, Golden Eagle Drive, Sandyford Court, Eagles Nest Drive, Joe Drive, W. Little Dipper Drive and Siltstone Loop. Permits for Harker Heights, Copperas Cove and Nolanville were unavailable Monday because city offices were closed for Presidents Day.
