The Story Behind The Assemblage

It was early 2013 and the Fulton County School Board had been shopping for a new school site for Heards Ferry Elementary. 

I contacted them about a 9-acre estate that I had for sale in the district (which I have since sold) to see if it would suit their needs.  The school board had been chased off by sellers from several attempted assemblages. They were not keen on using imminent domain and were learning just how difficult it was to find and assemble land in North Buckhead/South Sandy Springs.

After several phone calls with their real estate director and consultants, they described to me exactly what they wanted and where they wanted it. I saw an opportunity and set out to find and assemble the land they needed.

Fast-forward 1.5 years to today. The Fulton County School Board could not wait for my project to come to fruition. Due to inability to find the acreage they needed, they ended up purchasing a vertical office complex nearby and are in the process of converting it into a school. Meanwhile, I finally convinced all of the necessary property owners to sign on to this assemblage, and the property is available!
