Peachtree City prepares for 1,329 new residences

A new map detailing the emerging landscape known as Wilksmoor Village on Peachtree City’s northwest side has been provided by the city’s planning department. The map gives a breakdown of both new and existing subdivisions and the route of the MacDuff Parkway extension and the link to North Kedron Drive at Ga. Highway 74.

The three subdivisions approved for construction total 1,329 units. Existing subdivisions, including one apartment complex, have a total of 1,454 units. In total, Wilksmoor — the city’s newest village — will eventually have 2,783 units.

[The pdf file of the full-size map is available for download at the bottom of this story.]

To date, there is one way to access the existing south side of Wilksmoor, that being MacDuff Parkway at Ga. Highway 54 West. Once constructed, a second point of access will be at North Kedron Drive along Ga. Highway 74 after MacDuff Parkway is extended to connect to Kedron Drive and a bridge is constructed over the CSX Railroad tracks adjacent to Senoia Road.

Approved but not yet under construction are three new subdivisions on the north side of Wilksmoor Village. Those include:

• Cresswind subdivision (Kolter Homes) with 650 age-restricted units for persons 55 and up.

• Everton subdivision (Wieland Homes) with 204 age-targeted units that have no age restriction.

• Legacy subdivision (Wieland Homes) with 475 units.

Potential plans call for a tunnel under the parkway situated a short distance from the existing north side of MacDuff.

Also situated in Wilksmoor Village, and located in the area adjacent to and on the west side of the CSX Railroad line is approximately 13 areas of industrial-zoned property. One of those tracts, of approximately 6.4 acres, is being proposed as the site of Massana Construction. The Massana property is located adjacent and to the south of the MacDuff Parkway extension while a tract of similar size is located immediately north of the future parkway.

The existing parkway is approximately one mile in length and ends at the Chadsworth and Centennial subdivisions. Once complete, MacDuff Parkway will extend approximately three miles.

The developers of Cresswind and Everton were given recent City Council approval to have up to 100 certificates of occupancy each before the parkway and bridge over the CSX line are completed.

That might be easier to accomplish for Overton since the south side of the subdivision is close to the current ending point of the parkway. But that is not the case for Cresswind which is situated further to the north.

Once the parkway and bridge permits are in-hand, developers have 14 months to complete the two projects along with the installation of water and sewer lines.

Senior Planner David Rast said Brent Scarbrough and Company is expected to grade and construct the MacDuff Parkway extension. City engineering staff is currently reviewing the parkway construction plans, Rast said.

Pertaining to the railroad bridge immediately to the west of Senoia Road, Rast said CSX has been in possession of the bridge plans for more than a year. He said discussions with CSX are underway to finalize the details for the bridge. It is not immediately known how much time will be required for CSX to give final approval of the bridge project.

There is also an issue with a small section of land consisting of less than an acre on the east side of Senoia Road in the vicinity of Kedron Drive. City attorney Ted Meeker said though the city owns the property, there is some potential for litigation on the issue due to discrepancies relating to the former owner of the property.

Wilksmoor is the city’s sixth village, according to the official city map. The others are Aberdeen, Glenloch, Braelinn, Kedron and the city’s industrial park.

There are a number of existing residential developments on the south side of Wilksmoor. Those include:

• Centennial subdivision with 350 units.

• Camden apartments with 399 units.

• Chadsworth subdivision with 86 units.

• Wynnmeade subdivision with 401 units.

• Cedarcroft subdivision with 218 units.

Peachtree Corners is getting a new luxury apartment community that is designed to appeal to millennials.

The new Echo Lakeside community will be located in Technology Park Atlanta area, taking its name from the two adjoining lakes that it will sit on. Once completed, it will offer 295 one and two bedroom units that are expected to fall in the $1,000 to $1,900 price range.

“Echo Lakeside is an important investment for our city in terms of livability for our millennial workforce, many of which hold technology-based jobs in Technology Park and surrounding office parks,” Mayor Mike Mason said in a statement. “The convenience of nearby residential rental space will ensure that the city continues drawing a dynamic workforce to fill these important positions.”

Peachtree Corners and Brand Properties officials broke ground on the development on Thursday, and the city has announced the residential community is expected to be open by next summer. The complex, which Brand Properties is developing, will be located on 14 acres at 510 Guthridge Court, which is off Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and Reps Miller Road.

The development is expected to have a number of features ranging from traditional apartment complex amenities, such as a clubhouse, fitness center and pool, to some less traditional offerings, including as a cyber cafe and an Uber lobby. It’s location on the lakes will provide it with a boat dock, a dog park, hiking and biking trails and, of course, lake access.

The apartments themselves are expected to have stainless steel appliances, 9-foot ceilings and designer cabinetry.

“We are thrilled to bring Echo Lakeside to Peachtree Corners,” Brand Properties CEO Brand Morgan said in a statement. “We think the serenity of the surroundings, coupled with the high-end amenities will make Echo Lakeside the community of choice for the growing job market.”

Whole Foods Market, restaurants and retail to open at Chamblee’s Peachtree Station in August

Whole Foods Peachtree Station To Open August 18 | What Now Atlanta

FILE – In this Friday, June 16, 2017, file photo, groceries from Whole Foods Market sit in a cart before being loaded into a car, outside a store in Jackson, Miss. Some small and mid-sized food companies are wondering how Amazon’s planned purchase of Whole Foods might affect them. The unknowns include whether Amazon might change the grocery chain’s food offerings, which now include thousands of products from small and mid-sized businesses. A key question for many companies is whether Whole Foods would place less of an emphasis on buying locally produced and innovative foods in the future. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis, File)
