Development Program

During its 50 year history, the Merrill Trust Group (“Company”) and its affiliates have evolved into a diversified privately held collection of companies and Trusts based in Atlanta,Georgia which are principally involved in large master planned communities, mixed use developments and upscale resorts.

Our Mission

The business mission of the Company is to continue to acquire, zone and develop high quality sustainable master-planned communities and resorts which significantly uplift the communities in which they are located.

The Company has owned and currently owns a very powerful array of real estate assets for investment, planning, development, and long term ownership. In metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona and Atlanta Georgia, the Company (without partners) acquired, owned, planned and zoned 33,000 acres of master-planned communities entitled for over 132,000 lots and 2200 acres of commercial property making the Company at the time the largest private owner of entitled lots in the United States.

The Company is currently focused on Merrill Park which is a $10 billion 2000 acre mixed use master-planned community planned for 7500 residential units and 11,000,000 ft.² of commercial space located 17 minutes from Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport which is the busiest airport in the world.

Just a few minutes from Merrill Park, the Company is also developing the 1100 acre Foxhall Resort which is a beautiful and unique lifestyle and sporting resort with 16 lakes located on the Chattahoochee River. Foxhall is the western anchor of the $100 billion Georgia Aerotropolis Corridor which will become one of the largest economic development projects in the United States.
