ARCADE, GA-Jackson County, with a permanent population of 46,998 and a total land area of 342 square miles in rural northeast Georgia, will be getting another 100,000 sf of retail and office space if Lawrenceville developer Brand Partners LP can get his development plans approved by both the county and city.

Preliminary plans filed with the county and Arcade officials show Brand Partners plans a 1,279-acre golf course-oriented community that will offer a town center containing 100,000 sf of retail and office space on 15 acres along US 129, about 45 miles northeast of Downtown Atlanta. The planned community would also have 2,440 single-family homes. Arcade has an estimated permanent population of 1,700, according to area sources and the 2000 US Census.

For Jackson County, the rush by developers to create new ventures in small communities continues. Area brokers tell GlobeSt.com about $1 billion in new mixed-use projects have either been filed with the county in the past 18 months or will be coming off the drawing boards in 2005. Lower priced land and easy access to major highway arteries are the magnets drawing developers to this largely rural area, brokers say.
