The Lakes at Green Valley

The Lakes at Green Valley is a 570-acre mixed use development located along the Georgia Highway 16 corridor (Arthur K. Bolton Parkway) at the intersection of Rehoboth Road in Spalding County, Georgia. This property was selected due to the great potential of utilizing the natural features to establish a unique "green" development. The property’s geographical location was also a primary factor in this site selection. It is located three miles east of Griffin, Georgia and conveniently along a four-lane highway approximately seven miles from Interstate 75. The Park is also located in close proximity to other industrial areas that house such names as Caterpillar, Inc.,Norcom and many others.

The Lakes at Green Valley contains nicely wooded areas with streams as well as over 48 acres of lakes. An additional 30 acres of natural area will be dedicated to green space. A public walking trail of 1.1 miles with its spectacular vistas will be constructed around the largest lake for citizens to utilize during daylight hours.  An existing cabin overlooking a beautiful 25-acre lake will be renovated to become a nature and meeting center for companies in the Park  This lake is also home to some of the best bass fishing in the southeastern United States.  Plans are being made to allow both companies and the general public to enjoy some of the fishing benefits of this fine lake.  .Planning for this development, through restricted Covenants, include many safeguards to ensure preservation of the natural beauty and environmental features of the property.

The Lakes if the first "eco" mixed-use park in Georgia.  Construction within The Lakes will require all site development and building construction to achieve a certain eco rating of the Griffin-Spalding Development Authority ratings system providing a standard for environmentally sustainable construction.  Each achieving company will be rewarded for compliance.  The ratings system was created through a partnership of the Authority and Georgia Tech..  Each lot has been designed to incorporate water quality grading features to help minimize the escape of sediment from the sites.  The existing lake dams have been modified and renovated as necessary to enable the utilization of the lakes as storm water retention ponds.  Each site's storm water runoff has already been designed. 

As a part of the initial phase of the development of this project, a two mile industrial parkway has beeen constructed to connect all phases of this project. In addition to the roadway construction, all of the industrial sites in the main Park have been rough graded.  Each site has been tested for soil compaction along with other soil tests.  Other infrastructure has already been designed and funded.  This includes water, sewer, gas, telecommunications, and electricity.  The majority has already been completed.  A Phase I Environmental Report has been completed indicating a clean park.  A Cultural Review along with An Endangered Species Review has also been completed with no issues.

The conceptual development consists of a site set aside for a hotel and conference center.  The hotel will accommodate approximately 110 rooms at 900-1,000 s.f. per unit with the building totaling 150,000 s.f. In addition to the hotel, the facility will include 75,000 s.f. of conference area, 61,200 s.f.of cottages yielding approximately 70 additional sleeping rooms, and a 50,000 s.f. pool, spa, and tennis facility.

Other mixed use parcels include an 11-acre commercial center with five 1.5-acre lots which should be utilized for those businesses serving the park such as a restaurant, bank, dry cleaners, etc.  Amenities include lake views and access to the walking trail system of the nature center.

 Another component of the development includes a 43-acre residential town center that will contain seventy percent green space. This community will include twenty-seven half acre lots in a new town development style. The lots will have minimum front yards, and the streets will be lined with sidewalks providing a unique neighborhood atmosphere.

The industrial component of the development will be composed of 360 acres of the property and provide approximately 2.5 million square feet of industrial building space.  Each industrial site is rough graded and will have utilities to their property line.

The Lakes at Green Valley is an exciting development for many users who will love to call it home for either working, playing, relaxing, shopping, or living. It is being developed by The Griffin-Spalding Development Authority as the result of a successful SPLOST vote by the citizens of the Griffin-Spalding community in 2008.
