A large tract of land has been clear cut on Vernon Jones Road, behind the Timberview Plaza office complex on Old Fannin Road (near the Hindu Temple). Rankin County land rolls indicate the owner of the approximately 380 acres is LK Skyline, LLC, out of Ft. Worth, Texas. During the expansion of Old Fannin Road, some of the dirt used on the road came from this tract.
Now the intended use of the tract shall be for a subdivision tentatively called "Forest River," with 180 some-odd anticipated parcels. The first phase is being constructed now. It is believed the quality of house in Forest River will be akin to Magnolia Place, which is being built across Old Fannin in the Farmington Station subdivision.
