The South Fulton area of Atlanta is all the buzz with new communities, retailers, and businesses abounding in every corner of the area. It’s no wonder why some of the nation’s largest builders are making their way to the South Fulton area. To say the least, residents are flocking to the southside of Atlanta by the droves, which also makes sense why Pulte Homes’ Princeton Lakes Estate subdivision is Metro Atlanta’s top seller.
Located just a short mile from the new Camp Creek Marketplace off of I-285, Princeton Lakes Estate Subdivision sold over 300 homes in 2006, the highest number sold by any one Atlanta area subdivision. The subdivision is made up of five neighborhoods of a total of 701 homes with different price points starting from the $160s to the $350-400,000 price range. The large community also includes a 2-story clubhouse, Junior Olympic pool, children’s pool, tennis and sports courts, playground, pavilions, and nature trails. Best of all, it’s located within walking distance of the new and bustling Camp Creek Marketplace, Southside Atlanta’s equivalent to Midtown Atlanta’s Atlantic Station. The May 2007 issue of Builder Magazine has ranked Pulte Homes number three among Georgia’s top 100 builders.
Princeton Lakes’ success certainly had helped. The City of Atlanta created the Princeton Lakes Redevelopment Plan and Tax Allocation District, which was used as an incentive to help spur the development of an ambitious live, work and play community in Southwest Atlanta. Of course, its close proximity to the 1.2 million square feet office and retail space of the Camp Creek Marketplace boosted the subdivision’s popularity. Now, residents in this and other new communities in the South Fulton area have major shops just minutes away from their home.
South Fulton county is on fire right now. New businesses, new homes, and new residents bring a breath of fresh air for this once stale community and will help the area prosper and growth as other Atlanta neighborhoods have.
