Nearly 1,000 residences largely geared toward seniors are set to claim the better part of a mile of Chattahoochee River frontage in Peachtree Corners, Gwinnett County’s largest city, officials announced Monday.

The site is a 115-acre tract off East Jones Bridge Road with 4,000 feet of river frontage that developers describe as “pristine.” It’s about a mile from Peachtree Corners’s recently built Town Center—a shopping, entertainment, and dining hub—and adjacent to 30-acre Jones Bridge Park.

The Providence Group, a subsidiary of Green Brick Partners, will be developing the venture, boldly described in an announcement as “the largest, most compelling age-in-place community ever contemplated in this part” of metro Atlanta.

“Upon completion,” a press release continues, “the community is expected to be one of Georgia’s most preeminent communities for [age-55+] active adults.”

Along the banks of the ’hooch, expect 916 units of “mixed age-restricted product” to include condos, townhomes, and single-family houses, along with assisted living, independent, and memory care facilities, all with “sweeping” river views, officials said.

Providence Group president Warren Jolly called the age-55+ property—with its proximity to Gwinnett, North Fulton, and Forsyth counties—a “prime location” well-suited for catering to the region’s “robust aging population.”

Providence Group expects to begin construction in January, with the first homes scheduled to post for sale at the end of 2020.

Peachtree Corners Mayor Mike Mason commended the project, adding in a prepared statement that it “will provide [needed senior] housing while respecting the sensitive river corridor and tree canopy that we all love and enjoy.”
