Hog Mountain is a traditional neighborhood development project to create a walkable community in Gwinnett County. Our master plan includes a wide variety of home types and prices that appeal to many. The town village will include small, neighborhood sized amenities to serve the immediate area with things like a small gourmet grocer, coffee shop, local restaurant or corner ice cream store along with small office spaces and civic institutions like a church and “neighborhood sized” school. All within walking distance to reduce traffic and save time, improving quality of life. Read more on the why of the project.

After studying the possibility of creating a traditional neighborhood development (TND) for a number of years, the land owners recently received unanimous rezoning approval for the Hog Mountain master plan.

BJM Properties is a group of three local families who own the 66 acre site within a few miles of our homes.  We desire to see our property become a community asset for generations to come.


Oak Hill Classical School is a growing, 12 year old Christian classical school in Dacula GA. Oak Hill’s leadership has been studying the potential for a long-term permanent campus by which the tenets of truth, beauty and goodness that are taught to their students may be physically exhibited to the students, families and community. Oak Hill plans to pursue Tom Low’s Learning Cottage initiative in the formation of a neighborhood-scaled campus.

A community church location is reserved on the town green as well.
