More than half of all units at the new Chapman Stables development are already sold, as the condo complex nears a sellout.

Developers have since transformed the existing building and nearby space into two properties, offering up more than 100 new homes, as well as room for ground level retail.

At more than 180-acres in size, Glover Archbold Park presents a desirable alternative for many locals and visitors hoping to escape the more urban surroundings.
