The developer who had planned a new mixed-use development in Alpharetta has withdrawn its application and proposal.

According to a rendering, the site of the development was for the northwest corner of Haynes Bridge Road and Morrison Parkway. According to the city's website, the development would've been 22,858 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 96,000 square feet of office space, 96 for-sale detached units, and 35 for-sale townhomes.

The development was proposed by Branch Acquisition Company, and city staff had been reviewing the proposal since July.

“In fact, (the city staff) had provided some comments early on that the applicant had already addressed and which resulted in their submittal of a revised site plan on August 11,” said James Drinkard, Alpharetta’s assistant city administrator.

When asked why the developer withdrew, Drinkard said he “cannot speak” to the developer’s reasoning. The AJC has reached out to the company for comment.

Branch is based in Atlanta and has developed 15 properties in Georgia.

Alpharetta posted the news of the withdrawal on its Facebook page, and it was met with mixed reviews by its commenters. Many rejoiced, but one commenter recommended that Alpharetta approve more "farmmunities," or farm-centered developments, similar to one Gwinnett County commissioners approved last week.
