Frank Brock has moved his "planned community for active seniors on beautiful Lookout Mountain" to the Dade County side.
Mr. Brock, former Covenant College president, previously had sought to locate his Chapelbrow development on Lula Lake Road in Lookout Mountain, Ga. However, there was some citizen opposition and it was withdrawn.
He is now launching a new Brow Wood development on 150 acres about a mile south of Covenant.
It is designed for active adults age 55 and older.
The Western Brow portion of the development includes 26 custom brow lots and 26 cottage lots, nestled along a meandering mountain road.
The Eastern Woodland portion is a "front porch" neighborhood of 47 cottage lots with streets designed for walkability and integrated green spaces.
The neighborhood plan includes a market and bisto as well as retail spaces for a salon, sundries, coffee shop and bookstore, and a flower and gift shop.
A planned business center and small business incubator will be managed in conjuction with local college business and community development programs.
There will be independent living monthly rental units designed both for those needing a temporary place to stay and for those needing assisted living or help with mental impairment. There will be food, nursing and therapy services, it was stated.
The Brow Wood brochure says, "At every level, trained staff will provide custom assistance with daily living activities, helping you preserve the quality of life you have grown to enjoy."
Twenty acres of the property is on the brow.
There is over 100 acres of green space below the brow and 26 acres on the woodland side.
The brochure says, "The neighborhood is being developed with particular attention to the need for green spaces, preservation of existing trees and vegetation. Access to well-lit pathways and sidewalks are a priority within the community, and offer the opportunity to connect with other Lookout Mountain amenities."
The first phase is the lot pre-sales now underway.
Home building and home sales are set to begin in 2012.
