Cobb County, Georgia’s county commissioners have approved rezoning requests for two new townhome communities in the eastern part of the county and a 55+ new home community in the southern part of the county, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

The commissioners approved a modified request from developer Ashton Atlanta. The developer had initially planned to build 67 townhomes that ranged from 18 to 24 feet wide, but was approved to build 60 townhomes that will all be 24 feet wide.

Pulte Home Corp’s John Wieland Homes has also been approved to build 43 townhomes on 4.1 acres of the 53-acre “Olde Town” mixed-use development in east Cobb County. The homes will be four stories tall with 3,000 square feet of living space.

Commissioners approved a 45-home development by Marietta-based Fortress Builders in south Cobb in the same meeting. This community’s homes will be marketed to residents 55 and older, and its homes will be priced from $320,000 to $400,000.
