A prominent Gwinnett County homebuilder is dangling proximity to downtown Atlanta, the city’s airport, Six Flags Over Georgia, and even a popular shooting range in an attempt to lure city dwellers beyond the OTP limits to relatively inexpensive homeownership.

Alternately called “Kingsland in Atlanta” and “Kingsland in College Park,” the Fulton County community is coming together a few miles west of Historic College Park, beyond the Perimeter’s southwestern rim.

While it’s not likely to grace the pages of Dezeen, the Paran Homes project is meant to blur the lines between urban options and suburban comfort with home prices beginning in the mid-$200,000s, per officials.

“Kingsland offers intown convenience in a desirable OTP setting,” Michael Rosenberg, Paran Homes president, said in a release.

The announcement points out a variety attractions within a short drive, beyond those mentioned above, that include Camp Creek Marketplace’s shopping hub, Sweetwater Creek State Park, 492-acre Boundary Waters Park, Wolf Creek Golf Course, and a municipal skeet and trap shooting range, Tom Lowe Shooting Grounds.

Paran officials hope the community will be “representative of what will become a growing trend,” by which they appear to mean building houses south of Interstate 20.

The 30 homes of Phase 1 are now selling. Here’s what to expect.

The Southport, at $267,000.
A version of the Bedminster plan, from $260,990.
The Oakmont, $253,000.
