The Encore development by Ashton Woods would bring hundreds of apartments and homes to a former golf course site near the Chattahoochee River in Duluth.

Public meeting this week for sprawling development proposed in Duluth

The city of Duluth will hold a public meeting this week to provide information on a sprawling new development proposed on a former golf course site. 

As currently proposed, the “Encore” project from developer Ashton Woods would include two acres of commercial offerings, as well as 450 apartments, 395 single-family homes and 126 townhomes. It would all be built between Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and the Chattahoochee River, just west of Sugarloaf Parkway.

The informational meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 13. It will be held at Duluth City Hall, 3167 Main St.

The development would require the site — formerly home to The Hooch golf course and Peachtree Golf Center — be rezoned. Dates for Duluth’s planning commission and City Council to consider the rezoning have not yet been set. 

Officials said the proposal has completed a Development of Regional Impact review through the Atlanta Regional Commission and will now be reviewed for compliance with the Metropolitan River Protection Act.

Local votes will take place after that review is completed.
