The new neighborhood will be within walking distance of downtown Landrum and will be built along South Randolph Ave., West Jones St. and West Rutherford St. A total of 155 homes will be constructed. 

Over 18 acres of land were donated to the City of Landrum by South Tyger Properties, LLC, last year for the development of the property. The Claiborne development will be the first subdivision built in Landrum in twenty years. 

According to David Richey, a developer with South Tyger Properties, Spivey Creek will run directly through the property, with 72 homes on one side of the creek and the remaining 83 homes built on the opposite side of the creek. The sizes of the homes will range between 1,800 and 3,010 square feet. The neighborhood will include walking trails, pickleball courts, an open pavilion and a playground. 

Another separate development on South Shamrock Ave. just outside Landrum city limits will add another 170 new homes to the area.  

City Administrator Rich Caplan explained this subdivision is being developed by Liberty Communities, a Georgia-based company that performs construction in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. 

“It looks like they’re taking reservations for a waiting list,” explained Caplan. “We haven’t had much serious communication with them, but they will be annexing into the city sometime in the future. They’ve gotten all their approvals from the county government.”

Construction of the Claiborne neighborhood is scheduled to be completed in 2026.
