Weeping Willows Traditional Neighborhood Development

Preserving History in a Traditional Neighborhood Development

Weeping Willows, a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) of single-family homes, townhomes, apartments, and a Town Center with apartments over retail, consists of six phases that will soon be developed on a 200-acre property in Aiken County, SC.

The site dates back over 170 years – a cultural site with farm buildings, a plantation home built in 1850, former slave quarters, a walnut tree grove, and magnificent magnolia trees and other hardwoods that provide shade and essence to the immediate area. The plantation home will be restored as a community space, the slave quarters will be preserved as historic structures, the farm buildings as food and beverage facilities, and the planned tiny homes as short-term rental.

When complete, in addition to the cultural site, the Weeping Willows TND will have 342 single-family homes, 107 townhomes, 150 apartments, a mixed-use Town Center of about 100,000 sq. ft. with apartments above retail, alley access, a looping trail, and connected sidewalks.

LaBella’s landscape architects led the planning and design, and overall project management. Current services provided include landscape architecture, civil engineering, building systems, and architecture to all phases.

Weeping Willows Groundbreaking Ceremony

On August 18, 2023, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for Phase 1 of Weeping Willows, a major redevelopment and historic preservation project in Aiken, SC.

The 200-acre property will be transformed into a Traditional Neighborhood Development through six carefully planned phases. Upon completion, in addition to single-family homes, townhomes, and apartments, the 200-acre property will feature a Town Center, parks, trails, and an amenity center to cater to outdoor recreational needs.
