A new 17-lot residential subdivision will be coming to 296 and 304 Thompson St. in Alpharetta following an Alpharetta City Council vote—which passed 4-3—to rezone the property from residential to the downtown live-work zone at the Alpharetta City Council meeting May 26. The new subdivision will feature 11 single-family homes and six townhomes starting in the $800,000 range for townhomes and $1.1 million for the single-family homes, according to Joshua Scoggins, an attorney for applicant AlphaDev LLC.

Part of the property runs adjacent to the continued construction of the Alpha Loop, a multiuse trail connecting major activity centers in Alpharetta. Scoggins said common areas will be placed on the property nearest to the Alpha Loop. The subdivision will also include a pocket park—featuring a fire pit, according to the development application—and three on-street, public parking spaces in addition to 74 private parking spaces.


Each of the homes and townhomes will include a front patio, and all townhomes will include a rooftop terrace as well, Scoggins said. This development is expected to add about 43 people to the city of Alpharetta's population and add about 94 vehicle trips every 24 hours, according to the development application and a trip generation report.

A construction timeline was not available as of publication May 27.
