The development, slated for a four-acre wooded area at the southwest corner of Kimball Bridge Road and North Point Parkway, would have a mix of detached homes, with 42 alley-accessed homes and 48 front-entry residences, each with a two-car garage. The builder expects the homes to range in size from 1,800 square feet to 2,200 square feet and be priced between $499,000 and $550,000 each, according to a rezoning application filed with the city.
Empire has proposed at least two 16,000-square-foot pocket parks for the neighborhood, as well as a large open park with a raised boardwalk and a recreation feature — the application suggests tree houses — and a swimming pool with cabana.
The proposed development is in Alpharetta’s North Point Activity Center Livable Centers Initiative and offers a “golden opportunity” to further the goals of the plan, which was first developed in 2008 and envisions “a walkable, mixed-use village with a focus on sustainability, greenspace and connectivity,” according to the application.
“The proposed development will further the trend toward transforming the area into a walkable, mixed-use environment by adding a needed variety of for-sale housing product to the area,” the application states, noting that the property is surrounded by commercial developments, including offices and the North Point Mall.
The community’s children would attend New Prospect Elementary School, Webb Bridge Middle School and Alpharetta High School.
A community zoning information meeting is scheduled for Sept. 8.
