A Buford-based homebuilder is looking to get almost 22 acres rezoned to develop 65 townhomes on South Enota Drive in Gainesville.

The request by JH Homes to have the property rezoned residential will be taken up by the Planning and Appeal Board on Aug. 8. Previously, the property was zoned in 2003 for medical and professional offices, according to the city’s planning staff.

Situated one mile from the Northeast Georgia Medical Center, the proposed townhome community would have access from Pearce Way and Smokey Mountain Springs Lane. Nearby Is First Presbyterian Church, CVS Pharmacy, Smokey Springs Retirement apartments and single-family homes.

City planners say the property is located within the Limestone Parkway Overlay Zone.

JH Homes is proposing to build all the townhomes with brick, cement siding, board and batten and shake. Each townhome would have two-car garages.

According to plans submitted, the community would contain as many as 14 buildings with three to six townhomes per building.

Cameron Henderson, president of JH Homes, is no stranger to the local housing market. Last year, the Hall County Board of Commissioners approved a subdivision with up to 130 homes on Spout Springs Road that was pitched by Henderson.

Henderson could not be reached for comment Friday.

JH Homes was established in 2014, according to state records.
