You may or may not know that there is a new development on Johnson Ferry Road at Blair Circle – named Brookleigh. You can’t miss it if you are driving down Johnson Ferry Rd. – across the street from Oglethorpe Crossing Shopping Center (Publix).
Brookleigh is a 56 acre, mixed-use, master planned community of neighborhoods, centrally located just north of Brookhaven, on Johnson Ferry Road, on the site of the former Johnson Ferry East public housing project.
Adjacent to Blackburn Park, the site is owned by the Housing Authority of DeKalb County, which is re-developing the property through a partnership with The Norsouth Companies and The Collaborative Firm.
Inside the park is a nice open area with a paved walking loop. The turf and the trees are not quite established yet, but Spring is on the way and this should prove to be a nice addition to the green space in our community.
