Sales at Biscayne Pointe are expected to top 125

Biscayne Pointe, The Knight Group's highly-successful residential development in the Rex area of Clayton County, is on a pace to record over 125 new home sales during 1999.

The community, which will have over 300 homes when built out, is located on Ga. Hwy. 42 just a few minutes from two interstate highways (I-75 and I-675), and the shopping areas in Stockbridge and the Mt. Zion area. The homes in Biscayne Pointe are priced from $99,900 to the $120,000s.

The Knight Group is offering 14 different floor plans, including ranch and two-story designs. Five of these plans have been entered in the current Professionalism Awards competition. The homes contain from 1,300 to 1,700 sq. ft of living space, and according to the plan, have one or two-car garages.

The exteriors are of low maintenance vinyl siding. There are six furnished models in the community, which features sodded lawns, sidewalks and streetlights.

The Knight Group, formerly known as Knight Development, is a family business based in Jonesboro. The company had its beginning in 1973, when brothers Scott and Perry Knight starting framing houses for Metro South builders. The Knight brothers got into the home building business in the late 1970s.

Perry's son Jay, who has been with the company since 1982, is now the president of The Knight Group. Scott's son Chris, who joined the company last year, is now vice president. At the present time, the company is building approximately 250 homes a year.

During the 1990s, the company has been a consistent winner of Professionalism Awards in the annual competition sponsored by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and the Greater Atlanta Sales & Marketing Council, bringing home two of these awards in 1992, five in 1995, one in 1997 and two in 1998.
