A Poncey Highland resident on Blue Ridge is telling me that there will be some retail development in the parking lot of the Druid Hills Baptist Church on Ponce and Highland. This was news to me but I wanted to see if he was just severly mistaken or if anybody else has heard or read about this. This would be very close to me, and pretty cool if it were true, I was just checking our group of CD contributors to see if anybody else has heard the same.

Its true!! There are plans in the works for some re-development on the Druid Hills Baptist Church property in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood on our signature intersection! (Ponce De Leon and Highland). This will be a welcome addition to our Neighborhood. Here is the info being shared for our next neighborhood meeting.

"The Druid Hills Baptist Church is planning a mixed-use redevelopment. This will only impact the non-historic portion of the church along Highland, Blue Ridge, and Seminole. The historic church facing Ponce will remain. The general membership will be able to hear the plans and vote whether to approve their consolidated rezoning application.

If you live north of North Ave. on Blue Ridge, Seminole, Cleburne Terrace or North Highland, please contact Edward Holifield at edward@edwardholifield.com ASAP to participate in a courtesy preliminary meeting with the applicant."

A lively section of Poncey-Highland could be shedding a surface parking lot soon. Developers tell Curbed Atlanta they plan to break ground in January on a project called "675 N. Highland" next to historic Druid Hills Baptist Church. It could be the first post-Recession condominium development in Atlanta to offer more than a couple of dozen units — in addition to 12,500 square feet of street retail and 7,500 square feet of offices. While the project is in nascent stages, it promises to be "a beautiful new product that this area has not seen for quite some time," said David Tufts, president of The Marketing Directors, which is partnering with Joe Laster of Abraham Properties on the project. Plans call for up to 124 condos...
