A proposed 334-unit apartment complex goes before the Flowery Branch City Council on Thursday, Aug. 15.

Woodfield Development is seeking to rezone 32.6 acres at 4496 Hog Mountain Road, next to Flowery Branch High School, for the project.

The land is currently agricultural. Woodfield wants it rezoned to residential multifamily and highway business.

Woodfield is proposing several amenities in the apartment complex, including a clubhouse with business center, lounge and event kitchen, swimming pool, outdoor dining area, walking trails, and a tennis court or basketball court, according to city documents.

Also proposed is 20,000 square feet of commercial space facing Hog Mountain Road, including 10,000 square feet for a restaurant.

The project expects to build out by November 2022.

The developer held an open house Aug. 7 to display plans and hear concerns from residents.
