Johns Creek Walk Participates in New City's Founders Day Parade

John Creek Walk Realty represented the Johns Creek Walk community in the first Founders Day Parade for the new city. The event, held Saturday, Dec. 1, 2007, was part of a day-long holiday flavored celebration of the first anniversary of the city's incorporation.

Those from Johns Creek Walk riding in their signature 1947, fire engine red, Chevrolet pickup truck were complete with a large representation of children and jingle bells were Jan Daniel, director of development of Atlantic Realty Partners, developer of the community, and his family; and broker Meg Thompson, John Thompson, and on-site agent Brannon Justice and his family from Johns Creek Walk Realty.

"We are excited to participate in this inaugural parade.", said Meg Thompson. "Johns Creek Walk is a focal point in this new city, and we are committed to supporting the community as it continues to grow."

The 1.3-mile long parade took place on State Bridge Road and included a variety of floats, marching bands and other participants. The day's events also included a family-oriented event, highlighted by a visit from Santa Claus, at Newtown Park and a tree-lighting ceremony at City Hall.

Johns Creek Walk, a mixed-use community, is North Fulton County's first true live, work and play neighborhood, offering a unique blend of sophisticated manor homes, Arts and Crafts-inspired townhomes, luxury rentals and specialty retail.

The 26-acre community will have a mix of housing choices, including 17 custom-built single-family homes and 44 three- and four-bedroom townhomes and 210 luxury apartments with condominium- grade finishes when complete. Amenities currently in place include a swimming pool with outdoor kitchen and cabana, state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour Wi-Fi equipped cyber cafe, business center, pocket parks, pond with ambient water feature, sidewalks on both sides of the streets, park benches, period streetlights and sign posts.
