Russell Lands is building Russell Crossroads – that will be, as they put it, “a ‘town center’ in the heart of the Russell Lands family of developments on 44,000 acre Lake Martin.”
It is being built on Highway 63, just north of Windermere Road. The town center will serve as resource for the neighborhoods of The Ridge, Windermere, Windover, Trillium, Willow Point, and for that matter, anywhere else on Lake Martin. Judging from their plans, and the players that they have committed, my candid take is that this will be very good for the Lake Martin community. There will be a high end grocery called Catherine’s Market, which will also have a deli. The first phase will also include The Springhouse Restaurant – “fine dining in a casual atmosphere.” Future plans call for a Hot and Hot Restaurant.
If I understand their overall plan correctly, in the future all of their area developments mentioned above (except Trillium) will be connected by a trail system so that one could jog, bike, or ride a golf cart to Russell Crossroads, and also go back and forth in between each neighborhood.
I snapped some photos a couple of weeks ago. They are already out of date. I drove by a couple of days ago and saw that they had the roofs on Catherine’s Market and the Springhouse Restaurant. But I will post these here anyway.
