If you've driven by the new Peachtree Reserve development on Bush Road, you've undoubtedly seen heavy earth-moving equipment piling up dirt all around the property.
It's all part of the construction process said Matt Rhule, with Re/Max Alliance, the Duluth company that will be selling the 16 homes planned for the new subdivision.
"We're just moving dirt around to get the sewers in right now," said Rhule who added the work is part of installing all of the utilities for the 10-acre property.
As part of the sewer installation the roads have been cut with grade stakes in place. Rhule said if the weather cooperates they hope to have the curbs and gutters in by the end of the year. Then a base layer of crushed rock goes in on the new roads followed by the first layer of asphalt.
But with the expected cold, rainy weather typical for this time of the year the time line is pretty much up to Mother Nature.
"We'll need two days of dry 55-degree weather before we can put the asphalt down," said Rhule.
The developer is also changing the entrance plans to add an electric gate to make it a gated community. Rhule said that given the homes will be priced $500,000 and up, an entrance gate would be an added feature appropriate for the price range of the homes.
Rhule said the developer is in the process of submitting plans to Gwinnett County's Planning and Development Department for a new entrance, then the county will have to approve the plans. He said the plans would include space to allow for a key pad entry and turnaround area.
