Suwanee city council is considering the approval of four housing developments, though three of them likely will not get a final vote at the next council voting session.

City Manager Marty Allen said a 32.2-acre development along White Street and White Street Lane, which has been on the books for several months, likely will get a final vote Aug. 22.

The mixed-use development would bring a mixture of single family attached, single family detached and stacked flat homes, according to city documents.

It is located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Buford Highway and McGinnis Ferry Road.

"It's been zoned a couple different times, and it's been sold to a developer that wants to tweak the site plan. (It's) basically the same design, but we had certain conditions to the zoning that were specific to the previous site plan," said Allen.

City staff and the planning commission both recommended approval of the plan.

Meanwhile, three other housing items on the agenda are not expected to get a final vote Aug. 22, according to Allen.

A developer is looking to bring 145 townhomes to a 14.9-acre plat near the intersection of Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and Village Crest Drive.

"The developer is working with some of the members of the homeowner's association in the community nearby to get their thoughts and comments on it," said Allen.

Another townhome development is expected to get postponed at the Aug. 22 meeting as well. Noble Corner, LP is looking to build on 16.3 acres between the two shopping centers of McGinnis Crossing and the Plaza at Suwanee Station, both of which are located on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

Council is also expected to postpone the vote for a 6.1-acre townhome development between Eva Kennedy Road and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, brought forth by Halifax Enterprises, LLC.
