A Columbia County developer is hoping homes will prove to be more popular than office buildings on a long-vacant plot of Martinez land.

Joe H. Todd, president of JHT Construction of Evans, has applied for rezoning of a 3.25-acre site on Furys Ferry Road at Old Ferry Road adjacent to the Oak Brook subdivision to allow construction of 26 townhomes.

Currently, the manicured site – which already includes parking lots, curbs and landscaping – is zoned professional, laid out in 2008 for an office park. After being marketed unsuccessfully through various real estate agents, the land went into foreclosure last year without a single office being built.
