A proposed development that would bring more high-end apartments to the city of Sugar Hill is moving forward in the planning and development process. 

The Sugar Hill City Council voted Monday to approve a design review for the mixed-use development that will include approximately 300 apartment units, street-level retail shops and public and private parking. The development will be constructed at 5082 Nelson Brogdon Boulevard and was submitted for review by construction firm Terwilliger Pappas. 

Mayor Pro Tem Taylor Anderson made the motion to approve the design review with conditions listed in the planning department’s recommendation for approval. The motion was seconded by council member Nick Green, and the five-member council voted unanimously to approve the design review with the following conditions: 

• Final designs should substantially resemble the renderings submitted, with final material and color selections subject to approval. 

• A public art element should be incorporated into the development. 

• Pedestrian crossings constructed at the developer’s expense. 

Sugar Hill Planning Director Kaipo Awana said the next step for the development is permitting for site engineering and development plans. 

The Terwilliger Pappas development will join the Broadstone apartment community in offering luxury apartment living in Sugar Hill.
