A City Transforming

A vision of the future also includes scenarios with and without Plum Creek being able to develop its lands in eastern Alachua County, depending on approvals, with a possible agricultural research park and new housing along Hawthorne Road.

Plum Creek — which owns about 60,000 acres in Alachua County — hopes to develop nearly 4,200 acres in three different areas east of Newnans Lake for the research park, single-family and multifamily homes. Even without county approval, the company may be able to develop about 800 of the 1,362 acres the city of Hawthorne plans to annex, proposed to include up to 2.8 million square feet of light industrial space, 150,000 square feet of commercial development and 800 residential units.
