A South Hall project known as Reveille will include 122,500 square feet of retail space, 122,500 square feet of office space, 560 apartments, 75 townhomes, 25, assisted-living townhomes and a 175-room hotel. A Southern coastal craftsman type architectural theme would be used throughout the development.

Construction could begin before mid-year on Reveille, a 509-acre mixed-use development featuring 1,570 homes in South Hall.

“We are working diligently with Hall County and various agencies to finalize our plans and engineering,” Reveille spokesman Al Maiorino said in an email last week. “We look forward to starting the project as soon as we have final permits.”

Homes could start being built by the end of the year, Maiorino said.

Sarah McQuade, Hall’s planning director, said that no permits have been issued so far for the development at 5445 and 5601 Old Winder Highway/Ga. 211, off Union Church Road and near Braselton.

“I cannot speak to his timeline, but the developer has met with us several times to discuss their development plans,” McQuade said.

Katie Crumley, Hall County spokeswoman, said, “As is standard for this type of development, the developer met with members of Hall County’s Development Review Committee as a part of the process.”

Hall’s Development Review Division helps with the review and permitting of large-scale development projects located in unincorporated Hall. Involved in the process is a review committee including officials from several county departments, as well as City of Gainesville Water Resources.

The project was approved in July 2019 by the Hall County Board of Commissioners, even as neighbors expressed concerns about traffic on Ga. 211 and the impact of noise from nearby Road Atlanta on the development.

In addition to the homes, Rotunda Land & Development Group LLC’s plans also call for 482,415 square feet in retail space, 8.4 acres in outparcel development and a 175-unit hotel. It is expected to take 6-8 years to build.
