Nonprofit organization Brookwood in Georgetown purchased 127 acres of land in Weir to build out Grace Place, a neighborhood for adults with disabilities, according to a Dec. 16 news release.

Grace Place will be located at 2148 CR 120, Weir, and will not be accessible to the public until June 2022, according to a spokesperson. The residential community will be built out in four phases; the initial $5 million phase will feature two homes that will house 16 people. The total cost of the project is $20 million and will feature a chapel and event center, an outdoor movie theater, a fitness center, a tiny home village, a pet resort and several additional houses. The community will house 80 residents, according to the organization's vision book on its website.
