East Village beginnings

East Village is a mixed use development in Monroe, GA that is being developed on my family’s farm.  There have been a few additions since the aerial shown here but this is basically what the property looks like today.  As you can see in the lower left corner of the project sits a large building.  This is the new Walton County Govt building which anchors the planned town center.  This building is 186,000 sf and houses 90% of the County’s personnel to include the Commissioner’s office, Clerk of Courts, Judges chambers and courtrooms, Planning and Zoning, Tax Assessor’s office, Tax Commissioner’s office, etc.  This is the anchor and focal point of the town center.  There are about 250 + employees and an average of 700 people visit this building every weekday and the County has enough land to expand to double the size of the current building.  Additionally there is a master detention pond that serves the County building and the entire Town Center. 

This property has been in our family since 1944.  My grandfather had a dairy and row crop farm on this property until the 1970’s.  To see more about the history of the farm and about East Village please visit our website www.eastvillagemonroe.com

Our first business to locate in East Village was Tim Stewart Funeral Home – www.stewarfh.com.  We hope to have a large office user soon and are in talks with several restaurants.
