The City hosted a groundbreaking on Oct. 24 to kick off the long-awaited Montgomery Quarter project. Montgomery Quarter is comprised of approximately 21.5 acres on the east side of Montgomery Road at the terminus of Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway.
The City has been working with a private development team, Gateway Partners Montgomery, LLC, to create a new mixed-use neighborhood that complements the Heritage District and expands the City’s tax base.
Phase 1 of the project includes plans for a boutique hotel, office, retail and restaurant space, and luxury, lifestyle apartments. The Planning Commission approved a Final Development Plan for Phase 1A of the Montgomery Quarter project on Oct. 7 to allow for site preparation, including utility relocation, grading, installation of the stormwater detention, and the installation of the road network. Site preparation is the first step in the construction process and is expected to begin in early 2020. The Planning Commission will review more detailed information, including building size, height, and architecture, as the project progresses.
