Update, Sept. 7: A proposal for a 280-unit apartment complex at the intersection of Wallis Road and Atlanta Highway will revise plans before a final vote by the Hall County Board of Commissioners. The applicant, Brand Properties, LLC, requested to table the application until Nov. 11 so that it could work with the city of Oakwood to determine sewer access, Director of Planning and Development Sarah McQuade told the board at its work session Tuesday, Sept. 7.

A proposed 280-unit gated apartment complex and 18 attached townhomes off Wallis Road in South Hall was recommended for denial.

Compounding issues for the developer, Brand Properties LLC, is that, according to Hall Planning Director Sarah McQuade, the city of Oakwood has refused to provide sewer to the development.

Planning Commission Chairman Chris Braswell asked Brand Properties if it wanted to table the application until the sewer issue could be resolved, but Brand declined.

Brand Properties LLC is looking to build the complex on nearly 31 acres at 3542 Wallis Road near Atlanta Highway/Ga. 13 and Christ Place Church in South Hall.

The development would feature a clubhouse, open spaces and dog park, according to a Hall County planning development.

A trailer park once sat on the property, which now just has a vacant one-story home, outbuildings and “a large, internal circular private drive,” according to the planning report.
