• City leaders considering apartment complex proposals
By Linda Green

The small town, rural nature of Thomson-McDuffie County is becoming attractive to developers.
Development groups are finding the slogan “Country living, city style” to be a huge draw for constructing affordable housing complexes in the city and county.
Municipal leaders have been listening to and considering proposals to develop apartments on Harrison Road and Whiteoak Road.
On May 15, Realtex, an Austin, Texas-based development corporation proposed to the Thomson City Council a nearly $10 million, 72-unit, gated, multi-family apartment community on 10-acres at 1953 Harrison Road.
Thomson-McDuffie County entities recently heard from the Winston-Salem, N.C. -based Landmark Group about developing a $5.7 million, 48-unit apartment village at 808 White Oak Road, the former voter registration and human development center building.
The lack of affordable housing or more housing for newcomers has been a long-term concern for Thomson and McDuffie County leaders. The officials have been involved in various equitable housing studies in recent years.
