A developer wants to bring more than 250 new apartments to the Mall of Georgia area.
The apartments are proposed for a 22-acre tract on Laurel Crossing Parkway, a street that juts off of Ga. 20 about half a mile north of Coolray Field, the home of the Gwinnett Braves baseball team. The property is also just across I-85 from the Mall of Georgia.

Pedcor Investments LLC recently filed documents with the Gwinnett County planning commission asking for the property to be rezoned to a classification that will allow for multifamily housing. The site is currently zoned for office-industrial and business districts.
Pedcor wants to build 256 apartments spread across 10 different buildings.
“The proposed development would also include a clubhouse and several amenities for residents,” planning documents said, “including outdoor recreation areas, fitness center, business center and a pool.”
The planning commission is scheduled to consider the rezoning proposal at its Sept. 5 meeting. The county’s Board of Commissioners would have final say on the proposal.
