The owners of a 39-acre tract near the intersection of Winder Highway and Highway 316 are making plans to capitalize on what they describe as a "very viable commercial area in the near future."
WUSF 2 Sugarloaf LLC and Walton Georgia LLC have requested their property, located just south of 316, be rezoned from RA-200 (residential) to C-2 (commercial) for the purpose of building a commercial retail and officer center with four outparcels.
The current plans call for two access points on Winder Highway, but none on 316. The applicant also owns the property to the rear of the proposed commercial and retail center.
In the rezoning letter of intent, the applicant wrote, "Sugarloaf Parkway has just been completed and connected to Highway 316 just to the east of the subject property and with the improvements underway along Highway 316, the applicant believes that this will be a very viable commercial area in the near future."
The subject property is located in unincorporated Gwinnett County just outside the Dacula city limits. If approved, the project will contain a total of 342,480 square feet of retail and office space. The case is on the preliminary agenda for the Nov. 5 Gwinnett County Planning Commission meeting.
Walton Georgia also owns a 157-acre tract of land within the city limits of Dacula which is slated for development as a "live, work, play" community.
