On behalf of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust, Lynne Byrd gave a tour of the Dunwoody Farmhouse to John Wieland of John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods and presented him with a copy of “The Story of Dunwoody,” a book published by the Dunwoody Preservation Trust.
Wieland, who has developed 34 neighborhoods in Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, Raleigh, Nashville and Montgomery, anticipates breaking ground for homes in Dunwoody’s “PVC farm” this fall.
Born in Ohio, he has been an Atlanta resident and home builder for more than 40 years. Wieland described the Dunwoody development as a combination of townhomes and paired-homes, all in a mix of traditional style.
“I believe in urbanism. Homes close to 285, churches and schools,” said Wieland.
He feels that today’s homeowner’s enjoy front porch-style living whereby they are friendly with their neighborsand are able to walk from the front door to the side walk and the side walk leads to your neighbor.”
Wieland was a major supporter of the Fourth of July Parade, and looks forward to being involved in the Dunwoody community.
