- The proposed development will be located near the intersection of Highway 316 and Highway 29.
- Plans for the center call for 364,760 square feet of retail space.
- The property is owned by the same group behind the proposed "Peak at University Parkway" live-work-play development in Dacula.
A request to rezone 39 acres near Highway 316 from RA-200 (agricultural) to C-2 (general business district) for the purpose of constructing a 364,760-square-foot retail center will go before the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners after the Gwinnett County Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the request on Tuesday, March 4.
"Given that development pattern and this being a major interchange along 316, we are supportive and have recommended approval," said Jeff West, Gwinnett County Manager of Current Planning.
During their March 4 meeting, the Gwinnett County Planning Commission also recommended approval with conditions for a request to rezone a 55-acre tract of land on Braselton Highway to R-100 modified for the purpose of constructing a 125-lot subdivision.
Citing two deferrals and the difficulty in obtaining requested information about the proposed project, district 4 planning commission appointee Clint Dixon motioned to deny the request.
