A public hearing is set for Monday, June 25, on a proposed 240-unit apartment complex off Thompson Mill Road in South Hall County.

Reserve at Braselton would feature one-, two- and three-bedroom units and possible rents ranging from $800 to $1,100, George Tullos, developer with Cincinnati-based MVAH Partners, has said.

The complex would be on 30 acres east of Spout Springs Road and near the Oaks at Braselton senior living complex.

Tullos has said he hopes the complex would attract teachers, police and others in service industries in the growing area.

“It is so needed in that area,” he said.

Braselton Planning Commission

What: Proposed annexation and rezoning for a 240-unit apartment complex on Thompson Mill Road

When: 7 p.m. Monday, June 25

Where: Braselton Police and Municipal Court Building, 5040 Ga. 53

The public hearing will take place before the Braselton Planning Commission, which would forward a recommendation to the Braselton Mayor and Council.

The Braselton Mayor and Council has scheduled a July 5 public hearing on the matter.

MVAH is seeking to annex and rezone the property to multifamily residential from residential.

Complex amenities would include a swimming pool, laundry room, exercise room, computer center, covered picnic area, playground and multipurpose room, according to the site plan.

Drawings of the project show an architectural style similar to Braselton’s Chateau Elan resort, which, according to Chateau Elan’s website, “emulates elements of a French country estate.”

If the project is approved, construction could start in the summer of 2019 and be completed in 10-14 months, depending on “weather and other factors,” Tullos has said.

“It’s a very loose time frame, at this point,” he said.
