Jim Chapman Communities, a major Atlanta-based developer of active adult communities, has submitted plans to build on 65 acres located off highway 20 in Hampton. The development is proposing two hundred fifty townhomes on fifty acres leaving fifteen acres for future commercial development.
The subject property is located south of highway 20 between South Hampton Road and East King Road. The applicant has applied for modifications to a master development plan to support their plans.
The developer plans to include several community amenities, including a 4,000 square foot clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis/ pickleball courts, community gardens and walking trails. Each townhome is projected to be a two bedroom / two bathroom one-story unit totaling 1,200 square feet. A one-car garage is also included.
No roadway access is proposed off state route 20. The applicant’s conceptual site plan depicts access for the townhome community off East King Road with a second emergency access point available via South Hampton Road. The future commercial development would front South Hampton.
The Henry County zoning advisory board will consider the request on Thursday, September 12, at 6:30 pm acting in its official capacity as the City of Hampton’s zoning advisory board. The Hampton city council will consider the request at a later date.
