An “upscale” condominium development connecting to the Gainesville marina is scheduled for construction in the summer of 2019 after the City Council OK’d a rezoning for the property on Tuesday, April 17.
The two six-story towers proposed to overlook Lake Lanier would include more than six acres of shorefront property that remains heavily wooded today.
Seventy-nine three-bedroom, three-bathroom condos with ground-level parking and an adjacent office building are planned.
The property, located off Dawsonville Highway, has remained undeveloped since being rezoned in 2000 for a mixed-use development with office, bank and retail space.
Jim Walters, a local attorney representing the developer, Lake 53 LLC, said the condos would likely be priced for “empty nesters” and represent a more restricted use of the site than the commercial projects the land is already zoned to allow.
Walters said this would also limit traffic into the site.
City planning officials said the Georgia Department of Transportation will not require a traffic impact study for the project.
“We know traffic is a hot button issue …” Walters said. “We think it’s the best use for this property and the best use for this community.”
The towers would be no more than 80 feet in height. The property would include a clubhouse, cabana and pool. A walkway with railing leading to and from the marina would also be built.
Concerns about stormwater runoff into the lake that were also raised last month were not addressed this time.
A representative for the Lake Lanier Association had said the organization would like to partner with the condominium developer to monitor runoff if and when construction moves forward.

Don’t waste your time searching for Pokemon. Do something constructive! Use your sleuthing skills as one of the advance scouts in the battle against garbage on the shores of Lake Lanier.
The Lake Lanier Association is looking for volunteers to eliminate treasure troves of trash! Advance scouts will be dispatched by General Joanna Cloud as spies in the Battle of Flotsam and Jetsam on Lanier.
Yes, you may use secret code names and wear camo as you identify where the foe (junk) is entrenched along Lanier’s shoreline. That way, on the day of Shore Sweep 2016 — Saturday, September 24th — our army will know exactly where to go to snatch the trash.
All scouting needs to be done no sooner than Saturday, September 10th, 2016 and needs to be completed by Wednesday, September 21st, 2016 so that we can coordinate the scouting report details with the individual Shore Sweep locations and be ready for the big event on Saturday, September 24th, 2016.
The Lake Lanier Association needs volunteers with motorboats (sorry, kayakers and canoerists) who will use the free TrashOut app on their mobile devices to locate targets. Once you download TrashOut, simply set your profile to affiliate with the Lake Lanier Association organization. Then, win the fight against garbage!

As part of the dynamic Sheila Davis & Company team I am fortunate enough to be able to work with people who are incredibly interesting and due to the nature of what we do I am often in their homes, which so intrigue me. A prime example of one such occurrence was yesterday’s open house at a Lake Lanier home that we have for sale at 514 River Sound Lane in the luxury golf and lake community that is Chestatee. This home is located directly on the lake with expansive big water views and where the approach to the home is as picturesque as any drive could possibly be. Just making my way to the home is always such a welcomed experience as the scenery runs the gambit from luscious golf course views and tree lined streets, to hints of big water and the feel of a community that is proud of all it represents. The homes are lovely and the yards impeccably kept and none no more so than the site of our open house luncheon on Tuesday. The owners of this home have poured their lives into the home and grounds and it is so evident the minute you drive up. This impeccably built and maintained home speaks volumes as to the nature of its devoted owners and their love of beauty, fine things, and the home they built together. The front porch alone looks as if it should be in a magazine whether the topic be “picture perfect porches” or “perfecting the art of plants and planters”! All of what greets you outside the home is a prelude to what awaits inside as this home has every element desirable in a home on Lake Lanier. It is designed to be a place of respite full of every creature comfort while it is apparent that no stone has been left unturned in its upkeep and attention to detail. Once inside you see the gorgeous view to the water and all the outside living spaces dedicated to a life well-lived on the lake inside and out. The home sits on a huge fenced lot that has been as meticulously designed and well maintained as the home. As you enjoy the seating areas along the lake shore you can take in the sights and sounds of the lake and the marina close by. If you haven’t taken the time to explore just what this home has to offer now is the time to do it! Whomever is lucky enough to be the new owner of 514 River Sound Lane will be lucky indeed!
