More apartments could be headed Braselton’s way in South Hall.
Atlanta-based Callicott Holdings LLC is seeking an annexation and rezoning for 36 acres off Thompson Mill Road, just east of Spout Springs Road, for a 289-unit apartment complex.
The complex would be built next to Oaks at Braselton assisted living and memory care center, which is next to a 248-unit apartment complex, Noble Vines, opening next week.
Noble Vines is at the corner of Spout Springs and Thompson Mill, with monthly rents starting at $1,200 for one-bedroom units, said Lee Terry, managing member of Claret Communities LLC.
The Callicott proposal calls for its complex to include a clubhouse, swimming pool with cabana, dog park, walking trails, workout center and “substantial green space, comprising more than 50% of the site,” according to a letter to Braselton from Callicott’s lawyer.
The contact person for the project, Gary Callicott, couldn’t be reached for comment.
The project would provide housing especially for people working in the service industry, education, public safety and medical services, Callicott’s application states.
“The Thompson Mill Road corridor and intersection with Spout Springs Road is important to the town’s growth and future development,” the application says.
Callicott goes on to say, “Thompson Mill Road and surrounding roads provide excellent transportation infrastructure for the proposed development.”
Spout Springs Road has been targeted for eventual widening between the Hall-Gwinnett line and Union Circle. Hall County is planning to widen Spout Springs from Union Circle to Hog Mountain Road in Flowery Branch, perhaps starting later this year.
A public hearing on Callicott’s proposal is set to go before the Braselton Planning Commission on Sept. 23 and the Braselton Town Council on Oct. 10.
