A public hearing is set for Nov. 7 in Braselton on an Atlanta developer’s proposal for a 289-unit apartment complex in South Hall.

Callicott Holdings LLC is seeking an annexation and rezoning for 36 acres off Thompson Mill Road, just east of Spout Springs Road, for the complex.

Braselton Mayor and Council

What: Public hearing on proposed rezoning for 289-unit apartment complex on Thompson Mill Road

When: 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7

Where: Braselton Police and Municipal Court Building, 5040 State Route 53

The complex would be in good company for the area: If built, it would sit next to Oaks at Braselton assisted living and memory care center, which itself is next to a 248-unit apartment complex, Noble Vines, which opened this fall.

The Callicott proposal calls for its complex to include a clubhouse, swimming pool with cabana, dog park, walking trails, workout center and “substantial green space, comprising more than 50% of the site,” according to a letter to Braselton from Callicott’s lawyer.

The project would provide housing especially for people working in the service industry, education, public safety and medical services, Callicott’s application states.

“The Thompson Mill Road corridor and intersection with Spout Springs Road is important to the town’s growth and future development,” the application says.

Callicott goes on to say, “Thompson Mill Road and surrounding roads provide excellent transportation infrastructure for the proposed development.”

Spout Springs Road has been targeted for eventual widening between the Hall-Gwinnett line and Union Circle. Hall County is planning to widen Spout Springs from Union Circle to Hog Mountain Road in Flowery Branch, perhaps starting later this year.

Kevin Keller, Braselton’s planning director, recommends approval of the project based on the developer meeting certain conditions, including obtaining a permit from Hall County to allow access to Thompson Mill Road.
