Plans submitted for 266 townhomes off Ga. 400
Settingdown Circle

Plans have been submitted for a large development near the intersection of Settingdown Circle and Ga. 400 in north Forsyth.

EMES Realty Inc., located in Mexico City, recently submitted a sketch plat application to build 266 townhomes on 45 acres, with a density of 5.9 units per acre, for the Forsyth County Department of Planning and Community Development.

Plans for the development include 18 acres of open space, mulch trails, a pocket park and an amenity area.

The project is one of several developments to have recently submitted plans for the area.

Between Settingdown and 400, there are plans to build 102,400 square feet of commercial buildings on 19.423 acres for four buildings ranging in size from 16,000 square feet to 38,000 square feet. The property will have to be rezoned from agricultural district (A1) to commercial business district (CBD) with a conditional-use permit for “contractor’s establishments and wholesale trade establishments.”

D.R. Horton had applied to rezone 51.72 acres to make way for 172 residential lots along with 27,000 square feet of commercial space nearby, but those plans were recently withdrawn without prejudice.

For the EMES project, a preliminary zoning review will be held in early October and the company will have a work period until March 31, 2020.
