Acadia Homes and Neighborhoods hopes to build 87 townhomes on 9.8 acres in Perimeter Center, behind City Hall and across the North Fork of Peachtree Creek from Georgetown.
Part of the property, a piece totaling 2.3 acres will be donated to the city for a park. The space will also act as a buffer separating neighborhoods and keeping wildlife close to the creek.
Attorney Den Webb told Dunwoody Homeowner Association members July 12 the project would not include a road to cross the creek and connect to Old Spring House Lane. He said it would be up to the city to develop a path or road across the creek.
The only way residents of the 87 townhomes will be able to access the development will be from Perimeter Center East, Webb said.
If the residents want trails or other amenities in the 2.3 acres, it would up to the city to provide them. Webb said he believes the city plans more of a “passive park” because of the topography.
Perimeter Center area is zoned for high-rise office buildings and is not part of the city designated for housing for senior citizens, as is the Dunwoody Village area.
The Acadia homes, like other recent townhome projects, are designed to be three-level units ranging from 2,300 to 2,900 square feet. Prices will start at about $500,000, said Nevell Allison of Acadia Homes.
“This will be a very upscale development,” Allison said. “There will be a pool and cabana in addition to our open green space in the middle.”
