A metro Atlanta developer’s plan to build more than 100 townhomes off Highway 211 in Winder garnered support from the city’s planning board July 16 as the panel approved a rezoning request for the property.
The board approved a rezoning of 23.72 acres from Neighborhood Commercial to Multi-family Residential at 305 Hwy. 211 NW, adjacent to the Bellingrath Plantation subdivision. Duluth-based Rocklyn Homes plans to utilize roughly two-thirds of the tract to build 141 townhomes with a density of 5.94 units per acre, while the remainder will be green space.
The rezoning request heads to the city council for a vote at its 6 p.m. meeting Aug. 6. The applicants are seeking the rezoning because topographical conditions, along with easements, “do not allow for reasonable commercial economic uses,” according to the application.
