The Peachtree City Airport Authority at its Aug. 9 meeting voted to provide Chadwick Homes with a letter of support for the builder’s proposal to construct 24 condos on a 5-acre tract bordering Lake McIntosh and across TDK Boulevard from Falcon Field.

Airport Manager Hope Macaluso said the vote by the authority board was unanimous, adding that neither the Federal Aviation Administration nor the Ga. Department of Transportation cited objections to the proposal.

A request to lift the multi-family rezoning moratorium for the single, undeveloped 5-acre tract on the southeast side of Lake McIntosh was approved in May by the Peachtree City Council for a six-month period. Developer Chadwick Homes is proposing 24 condominiums for the site.

The 5.1-acre lakefront property, essentially forming a peninsula, is adjacent to and southwest of the Planterra golf course, west of Falcon Field and north of Lake McIntosh Park. Three sides of the peninsula are water-facing. The site accesses TDK Boulevard.

Currently zoned GI (general industrial), Chadwick plans to return with a rezoning proposal that would request the construction of 24 condominiums on the property.

Chadwick representatives during the May presentation noted provisions of the 1985 Land Use Plan noting, “… some MDMF (medium-density multi-family) should also be constructed near the industrial park, so as to permit close work/home relationships.”

Project planner Jerry Peterson in an April letter said that, while zoning industrial, the site is no longer appropriate for an industrial building.

“There have been years of attempts to market this parcel as industrial or office, but with no success because of the remote location and other factors. Southpark still has some industrial parcels on the golf course after years of marketing,” said Peterson.
