Developer Of The Enclave Has Community Meeting Monday

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Developer Bassam Issa of the ANT Group will be hosting a second community meeting on Monday from 6-7 p.m. with East Brainerd residents about his plans for a small walkable community off Ooltewah-Ringgold Road.

Mr. Issa, who is a resident of Frost Creek neighborhood, has a vision for the vacant 53.9-acre property at 9700 East Brainerd Road to reflect the personality of the surrounding community. Mr. Issa’s plans include upscale apartment living for families and a small town center to meet their needs.

The Enclave at East Hamilton will be located adjacent to single-family homes. Drive-through restaurants and a Super Bi-Lo are to the west of the property. Small-scale commercial lots connect to the northwest corner. A manicured boulevard with native plantings will welcome friends and family entering from Ooltewah-Ringgold Road. Shops and boutiques that are smaller in scale than the neighboring grocery store make the Enclave at East Hamilton a thoughtful development for the area, said officials.

The developer is working with Greystone Properties from Atlanta to construct the high-end apartment homes.  To view their online portfolio visit: www.GreystoneProperties.net.

The meeting will be held at Westview Elementary School, 9629 East Brainerd Road.  To receive regular updates, answers to questions, photos and documents related to the project, find them on Facebook.
