What is happening now on the Eco Cottages?
After revisiting our site plan and proposal, we have resubmitted our rezoning application to the City of East Point.  The Planning & Zoning Commission is August 17, 2017 and the City Council hearing is September 18, 2017 (each at 7:00 PM at the City Annex at 3121 Norman Berry Drive, East Point, Georgia 30344.)  Thank you for your patience and support in the meantime!
 
How much will they cost?

The pricing will vary depending on what is approved during zoning and permitting, but below are our best estimates based on the information that we have currently.  You will be able to select from a variety of customization options including layout alternatives, a variety of finishes and a net zero upgrade.   

  • 500 sf  (20 units) 1 or 2 BR/ 2 BA – $100,000-$175,000 
  • 750 sf  (10 units) 1 or 2 BR/ 2 BA – $150,000-$200,000 
  • 1000 sf (10 units) 2 or 3 BR/ 2.5 BA – $175,000-$225,000 


What happens next?
Following the zoning we will begin the permitting process.  This takes about 60-90 days, so we are looking at late 2017 for the permitting to be complete.
 
What are you doing in the meantime?
In the mean time we are working with architects and designers to come up with both the exterior elevations and the revised interior floor plans.  
 
We are working also on getting the pricing for the site development costs.  These include many things such as the water lines, sewer lines, grading of the lot, and a whole lot more.
 
When will you know the final pricing of the homes?
As soon as we get the site development costs and the floor plans we will be working on the pricing of the homes – later in 2017.
 
Will there be a homeowners association and what will be the cost?
There will be a homeowners association and the cost will be determined as we work on the site development and the common area amenities.
 
Can I design my own home?
No, the designs of the homes will be set – however, there will be a number of options that you can select.
 
Can I have a tiny home on wheels in this community?
With this development there will not be any tiny homes on wheels.  All of the homes will be on permanent foundations and will be connected to the sewer, water and electrical systems of the community. 


Can I rent my house if I buy in the Eco Cottages @ East Point?
Keeping the Eco Cottages a primarily owner occupied neighborhood is extremely important to us and the surrounding community.  Our homeowner's association will have bylaws which restrict rentals to 10%.  You will need to be on the list of approved renters, which will be a first come first serve basis and will be further outlined in the bylaws.
