Update, May 11: A vote on a 40-unit affordable housing apartment development in South Hall was postponed until June.
A 40-unit affordable housing apartment development off Thompson Mill Road in South Hall is set for a vote Monday, May 10, by the Braselton Town Council.
The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at the Braselton Police and Municipal Court Building, 5040 State Route 53.
Apartments in the Peaks of Braselton — a development targeting those 55 and older —
would be in a three-story building behind Noble Vines of Braselton apartments and the Oaks at Braselton senior living center. The 5-acre site also would feature a gazebo and community garden, and the building would include an elevator.
Atlanta-based Landbridge Development is seeking rezoning from general commercial to multifamily residential for the development.
Peaks of Braselton would rely on federal housing tax credits to finance the project.
Under a tax credits program administered by the state, prospective tenants must meet certain income restrictions. However, unlike federal Section 8 housing, no rents will be government-subsidized.
