Watershed Development, LLC Watershed Development, LLC opened its doors in 2000 as a speculative real estate company specializing in developing, designing and constructing homes. Watershed Development Team believes that Atlanta's new construction should reflect the styles that have historically been used in the intown neighborhoods. To this end, our projects incorporate period detailing, while they are also designed to meet the needs and lifestyles of today's market. This integrated approach and attention to detail, from design through construction, have resulted in a superior product and critical acclaim. Watershed Development Team continues with that mission today, creating projects that foster an improved quality of life and community for all Atlantans. We believe, that as cities such as Atlanta continue to experience explosive growth, we must not only structure suburban sprawl, but also increase the density of existing urban areas. We embrace the re-urbanization of the American City, focusing our attention on "in-town" neighborhoods such as Ansley Park, Morningside, Candler Park, Grant Park and Old Fourth Ward. By concentrating on infill development within the traditional neighborhood fabric of Atlanta, Watershed Development Team hopes to shape new, smart, conscientious growth in Atlanta, and in doing so, provide a richer living environment for its citizens. The Professionalism Awards is an annual program produced by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council to recognize the most outstanding professionals in the Atlanta homebuilding industry.

In addition to his leadership role with the company, Rick is responsible for the design of each Watershed Project. The result is that no two projects are the same. Each home is uniquely designed to its specific site and context, including views, orientation and architectural style.
