For those of you looking for a new construction home in East Montgomery, New Park is an interesting option – interesting for two reasons.

1) The developer (Jim Wilson & Associates) has already brought Montgomery notable developments such as the Wynlakes neighborhood and country club, and the huge Eastchase shopping area.

2) The newest East Montgomery elementary school, James W. Wilson, Jr. Elementary School is being built inside New Park.  At this point, there is not another public school built inside an East Montgomery neighborhood.

Since it’s a brand new neighborhood, you have to build a home.  Phase One is paved and landscaped.  The total development will encompass 1,400 acres.  (To put that in perspective, Deer Creek, across from New Park on Ray Thorington Road, is built on around 800 acres.  Do the math.  The place is going to be big.)

new-parkBased on the New Park website, it looks like there are 5 builders to choose from to build your home.  You can use one of their house plans, or bring your own.

It will be interesting to see how quickly New Park grows once Jim Wilson Elementary school opens.  As of this post, Montgomery Public Schools has not finalized zoning plans for Wilson Elementary, or Carr Middle School (also under construction and next  to New Park).  Students in this area currently attend Blount Elementary School.
