A company wanting to build age-restricted senior apartments in Peachtree City has its sights on a new location.

NorSouth Companies wants to rezone a 5.62-acre tract on Newgate Road to make room for 110 apartment units in a three-story building.

The building would be served by elevators, and it would be restricted to seniors 62 and above. The age restriction is proposed to be part of the zoning and deed restrictions on the property.

The parcel in question is currently zoned limited use residential with a land use designation of multi-family.
Rents would range from the mid-600s for one bedroom units up to $900-$1,000 for two bedroom units, company officials have said.

In a March workshop meeting, several City Council members expressed hesitancy about the concept. At that meeting, NorSouth was looking at an undeveloped tract in the Lexington Circle mixed-use development off Ga. Highway 54 and Walt Banks Road.

The complex would not have any medical staff nor any food service such as a cafeteria, as it is targeted for seniors who are active and independent, NorSouth officials have said.

The property would have a full-time manager on site and would also be staffed at night with maintenance workers who are trained to respond to any emergency that might come up; each unit will have an emergency monitoring system.
