After three hours of working hard for citizens at Alpharetta’s Nov. 15 city council meeting, the council was able to conduct a public hearing on a plan to build 58 ‘For-Sale’ townhomes on 7.35 acres at Hembree Road and Morrison Parkway.

The plan, resulting in almost 8 townhomes per acre, was approved with 25 conditions including maximum building setbacks of 50-feet on Hembree Road and 100-feet along Morrison Parkway. Townhomes facing Hembree Road will have a minimum 4-foot-deep porch and other architectural details.

The North Point Overlay requires a minimum of seven EcoDistrict measures to be incorporated into all new developments. This new community will incorporate eleven EcoDistrict points. EcoDistrict points are requested for building energy efficiency, bio-retention and sustainable landscaping, enhanced bicycle amenities and additional landscaped civic space.

Homes will range from 1,900 to 2,200 square feet and all will be 3-bedroom units. Each unit will have an attached two-car garage. Homes are expected to be priced from $449,000 to $500,000.
