Development of Bush Road Land May Begin by Fall

Plans call for building 19 homes on the 10-acre tract.

It's been a long time coming, but it appears the plans proposed by a developer to build a small subdivision on the 10.1 acres of land that fronts Bush Road is about to get underway.

Mitch Peevy of Mill Creek Consulting, the company involved in the land deal, said the sale of the property had gone through but the development had been held up due to the building moratorium imposed by the new city of Peachtree Corners.

"We couldn't do anything because of the moratorium," said Peevy. Although the proposed project had been approved at an April 24 meeting of the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners, the project could proceed no further until the city lifted the buidling moratorium said Peevy.

Peevy said he hopes to get the go-ahead to begin pulling permits to begin clearing the land, grading and adding utilities. "We hope to have the development permits issued within the next 45-60 days," said Peevy. "We feel pretty good it will go through."

Buford-based Prime Interest Development, headed by Marty Orr is the developer of the property.

The site plan calls for:

  • 19 homes to be built on lots that varied in size but would be approximately 1/4 acre in size.
  • Minimum square footage 2,400 (heated) space.
  • Front fascade of homes to be brick, stone or stucco
  • Homes would have 2 - 3 garages
  • Backs of homes facing Bush Road would be of earthtone colors
  • One builder would build out the property
  • Behind the new subdivision would be a 4-acre tract of land that would remain undisturbed.

I am sorry to hear that. Moved to River Place (off Bush Rd.) in 1987. There was nothing but a lot of undeveloped land. No Forum, Wieland or the other subdivisions that exist now. River Place was devoloped in the early 80's when clear cutting lots wasn't standard practice. Now all the development and extra traffic has taken the tranquility from the area.

If this occurs, I hope that an enhancement to the 141 North access lane can be developed for those of us that have to travel Bush road to get there.
