Home-builder Jim Chapman Jr. is looking to transform a 7.69 acre parcel in Historic Downtown East Point into a 40-house community of 250 to 700-square-foot homes.
The development, Eco Cottages at East Point, would be a self-sustaining community of tiny-houses complete with amenities like a community garden, walking and bike paths, fire pit, picnic space, and a yoga area.
“The Eco Cottages at East Point is a new type of community that is a culmination of sustainable structures, new urbanism and micro agrihood,” according to the development’s website.
“We are redefining the idea of a neighborhood by encouraging relationships between neighbors physically and socially through the design of the neighborhood layout and the engagement through community activities.”
The Eco Cottages at East Point would be the first “tiny home community in metro-Atlanta.”
