Houston-based Johnson Development Corp, the developer of Towne Lake and BridgeMill, has already begun construction to complete a budgeted $64 million to retool 5,800 acres in Waleska, Georgia into Lake ArrowHead. The new Cherokee County development will include an 18-hole golf course, clubhouse, 40-acre festival area, Olympic swimming pool, trails, and no more than 5,000 housing units from $200,000 to $500,000+. The development will also include Lakeside Village – a mixed-use development along the waterfront.
Cherokee County had targeted this area for development years ago by zoning it to accommodate up to 80,000 housing units. This will be the most development seen around the 540-acre lake since 1974.
