Devin Properties LLC and Seven Oaks Co. have teamed up to develop 32 vacant acres on Webb Road in Deerfield Park, an Alpharetta office complex.

The development will include 256 residential units and up to 56,000 square feet of retail and live/work space. Adam D. Orkin, CEO of Devin, hopes to create a pedestrian-friendly village with preserved green space. About 75 percent of the mature hardwoods are expected to be preserved.

The project is scheduled to go before the Fulton County Commission July 6 for final approval. Construction is expected to begin soon after if it is approved.

The Webb Road development is part of a larger joint venture between the two companies. Devin and Seven Oaks have agreed to develop more than 260 acres of land in north Fulton and south Forsyth counties over several years.
