Jackson’s Grant on Williams Creek
As evident to anyone who uses Spring Mill Road, there’s been a lot of activity at the property north and west of the 116th Street roundabout. Seven distinct but complementary neighborhoods, along with a Community and Recreation Center, are being developed by Republic Development LLC in a community called Jackson’s Grant.
The land comprising this new addition was deeded by President Andrew Jackson in 1834 to a local family. Since that time, the land has only been transferred one time and passed down the family line by heir. Republic Development LLC partnered with the current family owners to develop the land, which features 261 acres north of 116th Street between Spring Mill Road and Clay Center Road. For years, the site hosted foxhunts and a variety of riding events centered on the Hobby Horse Barn.
Conscientiously planned and developed around the centrally located Williams Creek and its tributaries, large areas of woodlands will be left untouched. Instead of retention ponds, there will be 61 strategically placed rain gardens.
With each neighborhood showcasing varied high quality home with unique design, Republic Development LLC assembled a team of home builders including Wedgewood Building Company, McKenzie Homes, Old Town Design Group, Custom Classics by David Weekley Homes, Executive Homes and Design Gallery by Drees.
A groundbreaking ceremony with local dignitaries on May 11th marked the construction of the Community and Recreation Center. It will feature a variety of amenities to serve the needs of Jackson’s Grant residents and serve as their social and recreational hub. The two-story, 7,543 square foot clubhouse will include the following:
· Grand Room with fireplace, bar and warming kitchen
· Deck overlooking Williams Creek Nature Preserve and Aquatics Center
· Card and game room
· Fitness center with locker room and shower/changing area
Adjacent to the clubhouse will be:
· Three outdoor pools (main, wading and lap)
· Tennis court
· Fire pit
· Play fields
· Pathways connecting to the community trail system
