Peachtree Corners officials will hold a public hearing on a proposed residential retirement community at their next city council meeting 7 p.m. May 22 at City Hall, 310 Technology Parkway.

The 115-acre tract, formerly the Fiserv property, is accessible from East Jones Bridge Road between Riverfield Drive and Sunburst Drive If approved, the development, which fronts the Chattahoochee River to the north, would include a mixture of housing options for those 55 and older. Options would include independent living, assisted living, memory care and 24-hour nursing care, thus allowing residents the ability to age in place. The developer is proposing a maximum of 916 residential units of varying types with a mix of existing buildings and new construction along with a request to allow for a new building up to 7-stories tall.

The primary one-way entrance and exit roadways will remain as is, along with some new, internal roadways. New recreational walking trails and three small parks are also proposed.

The city’s planning commission and staff have recommended approval with conditions.
