110 residential units over both parcels, a commercial node, several parks and a future city hall.
I was hoping to post both development submissions along with all related documents in order to allow you the opportunity to compare and contrast the proposals but the link to the John Wieland proposal is broken, therefore I will point you to the location for when it gets fixed. Click here which takes you to the main Project Renaissance - A New Georgetown page, then click any of the three links on the page and it will take you to a more detail page. Then scroll to the bottom and click the Project Renaissance Downloads which will show you the links below which should be all documents and both proposals, but like I said the link to Wieland proposal is broken but might be fixed in the early a.m. Please give me your feedback. Thanks.

DUNWOODY’S PROJECT RENAISSANCE TAKES A CRITICAL STEP FORWARD
Selection Committee Recommends Partnership with John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods
Dunwoody, GA – May 3, 2012 – The City of Dunwoody is pleased to announce John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods as its recommended partner for its redevelopment initiative: “Project Renaissance – A New Georgetown.”
In an effort to implement the Georgetown Master Plan adopted last spring, the City released an invitation for proposals in March to encourage interested developers to submit ideas and concepts that align with the Master Plan for the redevelopment of a 16 acre parcel owned by the City and a 19 acre property the City has under contract.
After evaluating all responses, the selection committee, comprised of City Council and staff members, unanimously recommended the City partner with John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods. In their proposal, John Wieland suggested a low-density, owner-occupied residential development interwoven with City parks and a multi-use trail running across and connecting both properties. The plan reserves space for the City to market and sell a 3-acre future neighborhood commercial node on the North Shallowford edge of the 16-acre parcel. The full proposal has been posted to the City’s website at www.dunwoodyga.gov and is available by clicking on the “Project Renaissance” button on the homepage under “Projects” in the lower right corner.
“We were very pleased that the proposal from John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods clearly aligns with the community’s vision for the future as outlined in our adopted Georgetown Master Plan,” said Dunwoody Mayor Michael G. Davis. “I’m confident all residents and nearby business owners will find the proposed concept extremely beneficial for the entire City as well as a catalyst for the exciting rebirth of the Georgetown area.”
In addition to making the proposal publically available, the City and John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods are hosting an open house regarding the proposed Project Renaissance redevelopment next Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall (41 Perimeter Center East, Suite 100). Attendees will hear a brief overview presentation and then have an opportunity to ask questions and interact with representatives from John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods as well as the City of Dunwoody.
John Wieland, CEO of John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, commented: “John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods is very pleased to have been recommended as the partner for the residential portion of Dunwoody’s Georgetown redevelopment initiative. We look forward to the opportunity to bring our award winning design and quality, along with our 40 years of homebuilding experience, to this very special project. We are committed to creating an exciting urban living environment in this outstanding location.”
The City hopes to answer any questions and gather public input throughout the month of May as it works to finalize a formal development agreement. The Dunwoody City Council will formally consider a development agreement with John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods at its City Council meeting on May 29, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Several additional public meetings will be held over the course of the summer as the plans for this catalytic develop head towards implementation in early 2013.
