Developer Issa To Hold Public Meeting On Project At 9700 East Brainerd Road

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Developer Bassam Issa of the ANT Group said he is inviting community members from East Brainerd to come to a meeting next week to learn more about his latest project.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, June 19, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Christ United Methodist Church at 8645 East Brainerd Road in Room A-12.

The vacant and undeveloped 53.9-acre site is located at 9700 East Brainerd Road.

He said, "The project will provide complimentary retailers to the area as well as upscale family-sized apartment homes."

Mr. Issa said plans call for the low-density homes to be built in two-story buildings with no more than 10-12 buildings in the apartment neighborhood.

He stated, "With significant landscape architecture and thoughtfully planned construction, the $25 million project promises to be an asset to the East Brainerd community."

Mr. Issa, who is also a resident near the proposed project, said, "Great care is being given to this development. Our project will provide smaller neighborhood retailers that will be a natural fit for the community. The sizes of these will be less than 40,000 square feet per building. We’ve paid attention to every detail of this project to make sure it’s a good fit both now and in the future. We’re looking forward to sharing information about the project and answering any questions the community may have.”
