Chattanooga-based GreenTech Homes has launched its biggest-ever development as the builder has started work on a new neighborhood in Hixson called The Farmstead.
Jeremy Fitzsimmons, director of development at GreenTech, said in an interview Monday that plans are to build 240 single-family detached homes on a large vacant tract at 6909 Hixson Pike.
Slated to go up in three phases with the first encompassing 80 homes and called The Founders of The Farmstead, he put the project at about $128 million when fully built out in about three and a half years.
“This is our flagship,” Fitzsimmons said about the company started in 2008. “This is our biggest single development to date.”
Residences will range from 1,600 to 4,000 square feet, he said, with more than 17 home plans available including one- and two-story units and multiple exterior choices.
Homes will start with a mid-$400,000 price point, Fitzsimmons said, noting that no townhouses are planned.
“This development is the one with the most amenities,” he said of all GreenTech’s projects to date.
A square off which the model home that’s under construction sits will have a plaza with fire pits, he said. Amenities in the development include a centralized clubhouse with a full kitchen and exercise equipment, a large resort-style pool, a dog park, a pickleball court and other activities, according to GreenTech.
Elya Kurktchi, a future resident in The Founders of The Farmstead, said he’s excited for GreenTech’s vision and designs.
“We love the architectural designs of the homes and the community plaza that they have planned,” he said in a statement.
According to GreenTech, buyers can customize more than 20 structural features such as covered patios, bump-outs, fireplaces, parking options and others.
