After a developer’s contract to buy land expired, the landowner cancelled a presentation scheduled for Aug. 10 before Dunwoody City Council.
Cypress Communities withdrew its application for rezoning, city spokesman Bob Mullen said.
“The developer missed the timing on it,” Mullen said.
Warren Bare owns the eight acres on Dunwoody Village Parkway where Cypress Communities hoped to build between 68 and 81 townhouses. After multiple appearances before the Dunwoody Homeowners Association and City Council, Lonnie Moss, Cypress Communities owner, ran out of time to buy the property and he couldn’t reach an agreement with Bare to extend the time, said Robert Wittenstein, president of the DHA.
“Apparently, his option to buy the property expired and he and the current owner couldn’t reach an agreement for an extension,” Wittenstein said.
