Duluth approves zoning change for 47 new townhomes

The Duluth City Council recently voted to approve a rezoning request from The Providence Group of Georgia, LLC to plan and build 47 townhouses on 4.63 acres at 2355 Main St.

The area is surrounded to the north by the Marketplace Village mixed-use development that is currently in the land development stage. The area closest to the property will be a 126-unit age-restricted apartment development. To the east, across Main Street is the Heights at Sugarloaf and Sugarloaf Market. There is an office/manufacturing building to the south across Main Street, and to the west is a water pumping station owned by Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources. Not adjacent, but in very close proximity is the Riverbrooke neighborhood which has nearly 600 single-family homes.

The developer will be back for more approvals before any construction begins. The city council’s consent for rezoning came with numerous conditions pertaining to the development’s uses and intensities, architecture and design, landscape and fencing, transportation, roadways and parking, street lighting and signage.
