CUMMING, Ga. — Perry Venable beamed with excitement at a groundbreaking ceremony on Sept. 18 of FrontDoor Communities' first Atlanta-based project.

Venable's 158-acre property, which now is farmland, will be undergoing a huge transformation in the next year as Traditions, a 400-home neighborhood, begins to take form.

"I will be living here," said Venable, who has signed up for one of the custom homes being built by Lamar Wakefield, of Lamar Beasley and Associates.

Wakefield is also the architect designer for the Avalon project in Alpharetta and the new courthouse and jail project in downtown Cumming.

The development is a partnership between FrontDoor and the Providence Group, which plans to complete about 90 homes in its first phase, with a move-in ready date set for spring 2014.

The Traditions neighborhood, along two-lane Ga. 9 and Majors Road west to Castleberry Road, will be north of Fowler Park and the Big Creek Greenway.

Forsyth County Commission Chairman Pete Amos and Commissioner Todd Levent were also at the groundbreaking ceremony.

"This will be a breath of fresh air," Levent said of the new community.

Amos added that the initial plans were much larger, but the developer has lowered the density of the project to fit with the surrounding communities.

FrontDoor Chief Executive Officer Terry Russell, President Mike Langella and Division Vice President of Atlanta Eric White were also joined by Warren Jolly, Kelly Kenton Fink, Tom Peterson and Lisa Brutvan of the Providence Group at the celebration.

Construction, expected to begin later this year, will bring hundreds of jobs over the next several years. Homes will range in price from the mid-$300,000s to $500,000s.

A 184,000-square-foot neighborhood marketplace anchored by a grocery store is also planned for the community.
