194-acre mixed-use project proposed for south Forsyth

A new live/work/shop community could be coming to south Forsyth County, just across the Fulton County line, according to documents filed with the state.

The development, dubbed Union Hill Township, would include 983 residential units and 250,000 square feet of commercial space, the documents show.

The 194-acre site is on the east side of Strickland Road at the intersection of Bethany Bend and McGinnis Ferry roads. Vanessa Bernstein, a Forsyth County planner, said the land is currently zoned for agricultural use.

The proposal calls for 213 townhomes, 47 live/work townhome units, 490 “stacked flats” and some single-family homes, Bernstein said.

The developers are Seven Oaks Co. of Atlanta and Devin Properties of Alpharetta. The project has a target completion date of 2010, according to the paperwork filed with the state.
