Two developments are moving forward after approval by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners on Thursday, December 16. Together, the projects will bring over 100 new residential lots in the southern Forsyth area.
Both motions were unanimously approved 4-0, with District 1 Commissioner Molly Cooper absent.
JWC Atlanta Holdings, LLC. requested the reallocation of the planned master district MPD and the commercial business district CBD to the master planed district on 23.8 acres from Mathis Airport Parkway for 16 connected units and 62 free-standing residential lots.
The project is expected to have a density of 3.29 units per acre adjacent to commercial buildings totaling 15,000 square feet and 67 parking spaces.
Michelle Horstemeyer, JWC’s chief operating officer, said they were looking for a “high street feel” to the project and adding a commercial area with amenities at the entrance to the development.
She also said the expected price points of the residential products would be different, with townhouses expecting a retail price of $ 600,000 and single-family homes selling between $ 700,000 and $ 800,000.
Horstemeyer said that while JWC hadn’t developed in Forsyth County in a while, the company was “focusing more on the more urban products” in places like Woodstock.
The board voted to approve the rededication request along with two additional conditions, including a traffic light at the entrance if warranted by a traffic study, and is working “in good faith” with the engineering staff to ensure that there is increased rainwater capacity and Outflow is supported.
