A planned retail-residential project in downtown Flowery Branch is set to go before the South Hall city’s Historic Preservation Commission on Dec. 5.
The development, which is planned on Main Street between Church Street and the Historic Depot on Railroad Avenue, must get the commission’s OK as the project lies in a historic district, city planner Rich Atkinson said.
What: Public hearing on downtown Flowery Branch retail-residential building
When: 4 p.m. Dec. 5Where: Flowery Branch City Hall, 5410 W. Pine St.
A public hearing will take place as part of the meeting, which is set for 4 p.m. at Flowery Branch City Hall, 5410 W. Pine St.
Building elevations and basic designs for the project have been released.
“They are not as detailed as actual building plans,” Atkinson said. “Rather, they are color sketches of what the building will generally look like.."
Flowery Branch City Council also is expected to vote on the project Dec. 5.
Atlanta-based The Residential Group is developing the building — made vacant by a demolition of old city-owned buildings during the summer — as part of a larger development, Crest at Flowery Branch.
The development also includes a 324-unit apartment complex off Phil Niekro Boulevard near Interstate 985. Grading has started on that site.
