Kolter Homes and KLP Close on 1,422 Acres for New 55+ Cresswind Community and Master-Planned Development

Land development will soon begin on one of the largest new master-planned community developments in the Greater Atlanta Metro area

HOSCHTON, Ga., Feb. 28, 2019 – KOLTER HOMES – a leader in developing next-generation, highly amenitized, master-planned active adult communities in the Southeastern U.S. – has closed on 1,422 acres in conjunction with Kolter Land Partners. The property, bordered by the Mulberry River to the south and located along Highway 53 less than a mile from Hoschton’s historic downtown, will be comprised of multiple sections including one of Kolter Homes’ Cresswind 55+ communities.

“We are excited to bring our third Cresswind community to the Atlanta area,” said Kolter HomesSenior Vice President Tony Adams. “With the experience we have gained at both Cresswind Peachtree City and Cresswind at Lake Lanier, we have a deep appreciation for what active adult homebuyers in the Atlanta market want. With this new Cresswind, we have another great opportunity to deliver it.”

Plans for this new age-restricted Cresswind community include a resident-exclusive clubhouse overseen by a full-time lifestyle director with an indoor pool, demonstration kitchen, ballroom, fitness center, yoga studio, art & crafts studio, billiards and various social clubs. Planned outdoor amenities across Cresswind’s 940-plus acres include a large pickleball complex, walking trails, outdoor pool, event lawn with amphitheater and tennis and bocce courts. Residents will also be able to fish the property’s two lakes, and details are currently being finalized on boating usage.

The overall master-planned development, which has been named “Twin Lakes” in honor of its 11-acre and 39-acre waterways, is located approximately 40 miles northeast of Atlanta. A total of 2,600 homes are approved, with current plans calling for 1,300 single-family homes to be built in the gated Cresswind community. The property’s origins date back to the 1800s and include ownership ties to well-known local philanthropist and developer Scott Hudgens who gained acclaim for developing several major Atlanta-area shopping centers, including the Mall of Georgia, as well as his extensive charity work and involvement with the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games in preparation for the 1996 games.

Cresswind communities feature amenities and homes specifically designed for 55+ active adults.
