WOODSTOCK, GA-Georgia’s suburbs within a 50-mile radius of Downtown Atlanta continue to attract new commercial development such as Hedgewood Properties’ planned 25-acre project in the center of town, about 10 miles north of Atlanta.

But the developer needs a rezoning change before construction can start in mid-2004 on an undetermined number of townhomes, multilevel apartments and retail space planned for small businesses on a site behind the railroad depot at Main Street and Arnold Mill Road, area brokers tell GlobeSt.com.

While Hedgewood prepares its rezoning application, another proposed subdivision in Henry County has been rejected after residents fought the development for months. Project True North, co-owned by state Rep. John Lunsford (R-McDonough) and his brother, Joseph Lunsford, sought rezoning on their 97 acres to build 195 townhomes. Residents convinced county commissioners the Lunsford project should be rejected because the proposed lot sizes were too small, area brokers following the controversy tell GlobeSt.com.
