The Grove @ Talmadge Farm would be off both sides of US Highway 19 / 41. The land is between Hampton and Lovejoy, shown in red on the map. It proposes a mixture of single-family, multifamily and commercial uses.

The project is proposing 7,160 total dwelling units and two million square feet of commercial space. More details, such as the breakdown between multifamily and single-family units, are not yet available.

The land owner and applicant, Henry County Land Company LLC and Geosam Capital US, purchased the property in March 2022. They are seeking a rezoning request and comprehensive plan amendment. They have also applied to amend the unified land development code.

Geosam Capital is a residential development company with properties in Georgia and Florida. Previous work in Henry County includes Hamilton Pointe and Parkside at Avalon subdivisions in McDonough, Derringstone Manor in Locust Grove and Clark Estates East in Ellenwood.

DRI Review

Henry County staff submitted an application for a development of regional impact (DRI) review this week. The DRI review — required because of the project’s size — considers any environmental or traffic impacts. It also allows surrounding counties and cities to comment on the proposal.

A DRI review can take several months to complete. During such time, the county can schedule the project before the zoning advisory board if it so chooses. The board of commissioners cannot consider the project until the DRI review is complete.
