The first parcel, sold to Hillpointe, LLC, consists of 20 acres that can support up to 284 multifamily units. The second parcel, sold to D.R. Horton, consists of 36 acres, or approximately 140 lots intended for the construction of single-family homes. A third parcel, consisting of 7.88 acres of land slated for commercial use, is being sold. 

“Walton Global is always pleased to support the increasing growth in the outer-Atlanta area,” said Anthony Sparrow, EVP of Real Estate for Walton Global. “The ability to provide land helps to promote housing solutions and build sustainable communities for many years to come.”

The community provides convenient access to Atlanta and I-85 and boasts 1,000 feet of frontage on Tom Miller Road and 600 feet of frontage on Roxey Maxey Road. The property is located in proximity to Apalachee High School, Haymon-Morris Middle School, Yargo Elementary School and Cadence Academy Preschool, making it a great place for families to live, work and play. Previous housing developments in the area by D.R. Horton and Lennar feature amenities such as swimming pools, playgrounds, dog parks, and nature trails. 

Barrow County has restructured zoning regulations for this community, allowing for the establishment of a High-Density Residential zone, supported by a special use Master Planned Development designation to promote a diverse mixed-use community.
