CUMMING, GA-This metro area of with a population of about 100,000 may soon be competing with other near-Atlanta markets in the hotel, office, retail and restaurant categories. The Cumming City Council has approved a preliminary six-month lease with the Greesboro-based Reynolds Group to design a development that would also include a conference and civic center and possibly an aquatic center, according to preliminary plans filed with the city.

The planned project, 40 miles northeast of Downtown Atlanta, may take about five years before construction begins, area brokers familiar with the venture tell GlobeSt.com. That’s largely because the design of a project of this size has to first be approved by the US Army Corps of Engineers which is responsible for overseeing Lake Lanier area developments, local brokers tell GlobeSt.com.

Although the preliminary plans didn’t specify the amount of space planned for each component, area brokers and construction sources aware of the project tell GlobeSt.com the estimated hard construction cost will be at least $100 million.

Reynolds Group operates the Reynolds Plantation golf community on the shores of Lake Oconee that comprises 1,400 homes, 82 holes of golf, three clubhouses and walking trails. The 251-room Ritz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation opened in 2002.
