The acreage on Spalding Drive, which once was the site of , is being cleared to make way for an upscale senior living center.
There has been a flurry of activity over the past few weeks as heavy construction equipment decended on the property making quick work of the burned-out church and other buildings.
The next step is having the city's new Planning Commission review the elevation plans. The five-member board is scheduled to consider approving the plans at the next next week.
Once the developer, Gary Holding Group, gets the Planning Commission's approval, the company will move forward with the grading and schedule a ground-breaking ceremony.
"If all goes well, we will be announcing a formal ground breaking soon," said Tammy McGrady, the operations director for the company.
McGrady said grading "takes the longest" in the process, but she said the company hopes "to have a marketing trailer on the property sometime in November."
The development will offer cottage homes, apartments, assisted living and memory care living for residents 55 and older. The residential community will also feature a walking trail, gardens, restaurant and other amenities.
"It's a great community," said McGrady. "We're excited to be in Peachtree Corners."
