Matt Caldwell is the real estate developer of Ladd Landing and Grand Pines on the Creek. Previous projects include Brentwood Landing, The Villages at Center Farms and The Highland Reserve. Ladd Landing construction began in 2002. Most amenities are built at Ladd Landing. Tennis courts, a boutique hotel and private boat slips are planned. 36% of the homes are built and we were told this lake community is virtually debt free.
On December 22, 2008, the Kingston Coal Fossil Plant had an accidental sludge spill from a collapsed retention pool. This created concern about the quality of water in the Clinch River, connected to a Tennessee lake. Clean up efforts aggressively continue to correct the situation. Beyond their control, the beautiful community of Ladd Landing has been negatively impacted.
UPDATE: As of December 2010, the clean up is complete of the TVA Kingston Coal Fossil Plant spill.
Matt Caldwell's commitment to Ladd Landing has not wavered. Instead, Caldwell campaigned hard and raised enough money to add 3.5 miles of additional lighted walking trails to the community enhancing their lifestyle amenities.
