Doraville city officials joined local residents and dignitaries from Century Communities on Saturday, March 3 for the official ribbon-cutting for The Heights at Carver Hills. The new $35 million housing redevelopment is currently under construction just off Peachtree Industrial at I-285.
Guests were treated to a catered breakfast before gathering in the newly-created Jett Park for the ceremony. The park was named after the Fannie Mae Jett family, early residents of the original Carver Hills community that was created when the General Motors facility was built in the late 1940s.
Comments were made by Geoffrey Reid, Century Communities Land Acquisition Manager and Mayor Donna Pittman before the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Both speakers acknowledged Carver Hills' historic ties to Doraville.
The Heights at Carver Hills sit on a 36.5-acre site that will feature a mix of townhomes and single-family homes varying in size from 2,500-3,500 square feet. The townhomes and single-family homes will range in price from $432,990 up to $552,990.
Detailed landscaping throughout the gated community will create a sense of "country living" and walking trails will be woven around the perimeter of the property, as well as a dog park and dog stations for pet owners.
Plans also call for playgrounds, picnic tables, a clubhouse and swimming pool for residents and additional features include an abundance of sidewalks, accented by "pocket" and linear parks, providing connectivity to all points within the community.
