Multi-use development plan for New Holland to go before Gainesville planning board in May

By B.J. Williams News Director

When the Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board meets next month, members will take a look at a proposal that will could bring more development to the growing New Holland area on the east side of the city.

Gainesville Planning Director Matt Tate said the developer - Limestone Greenway, LLC - has submitted a request to annex 75.12 acres of property on the northwest side of the intersection of Jesse Jewell Parkway and Limestone Parkway. He said the developer wants to build a mixed-use project on the property.

"The proposal includes 225,000 square feet of commercial space, which could include office, retail, restaurant, hotel space," said Tate. "As well, they're proposing 252 multi-family residential units - apartment units - and up to 33 single-family homes."

The property is located within the Limestone Parkway Overlay Zone, according to the application. A single access road is proposed from Limestone Parkway to serve the commercial and multi-family uses. Two access drives are also proposed off of Limestone Parkway and Jesse Jewell Parkway to serve a commercial out-parcel lot. In addition, one access road is proposed off of Lakeview Drive to serve the proposed single-family homes. 

Tate said these types of projects are becoming more commonplace as the city continues to grow.

"I think you're seeing more master planned properties and developments just due to the fact that there's an interest in new housing types, along with accompanying commercial uses," Tate said.

The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board will consider the application at its meeting on May 8 at 5:30 at the Gainesville Public Safety Building on Queen City Parkway. The Gainesville City Council will hold a June 5 public hearing on the application.
