The move to continue construction of the Durham Lakes area advanced Nov. 13 as Fairburn City Council approved the final plat for Durham Lakes subdivision, Unit II, Phase 2.

The section is composed of 38 lots with a minimum lot size of 11,200 square feet, said City Administrator Jim Williams. Homes prices are expected to be in the $250,000-300,000 range.

The majority of the lots are situated to the west of Durham Lake Parkway and bordered on the north by Virlyn B. Smith Parkway. A smaller section of lots is located south of Durham Lake Parkway as it takes a westward turn further into the development.

The original concept of the Durham Lakes development called for construction of 872 homes. With a significant portion of the homes already built, prices range from $200,000-400,000.

The Durham Lakes development is located on the northwest side of Roosevelt Highway and Virlyn B. Smith Parkway.

Also on the agenda was an informational review of the planned Southpark Industrial Park on the southeast corner of Oakley Industrial Boulevard and Ga. Highway 92. The only building currently identified for the 38-acre site is a proposed 400,000 square-foot warehouse distribution center already approved by Fulton County prior to its recent annexation. Due to its prior approval no action was needed, Williams said.

Owned by M.D. Hodges, the Southpark Industrial Park property, the temporary name for the project, is a part of the overall Southpark Master Plan. The property was zoned M-2 Heavy Industrial when recently annexed. That zoning excludes Solid Waste Disposal and Collection facilities.
