Developer: How Summerhill, in shadow of Turner Field, could be drastically different in a year

By mid-2018, rows of vacant Georgia Avenue structures could spring to life with up to 10 retailers, Carter’s senior vice president predicts.

Even sooner - ready for build-out in October, hopefully some opening this coming Winter!

"The goal, pending permits, is to launch construction that will allow for actual occupancy in October. Overall, Carter’s redevelopment team—which is tackling 60 acres evacuated by the Braves last year—includes Georgia State University, Oakwood Development, and Healy Weatherholtz.

Carter’s goal is that tenants will start opening along Georgia Avenue—a section of Atlanta long starved for retail and services—by late winter, eventually occupying roughly 30,000 square feet across a couple of blocks."

It's quite a sight to see! I live next door. They've been working on this house for what seems like forever. It will be interesting to see how long it stays on the market and what the final sale price is. It's exciting though to see houses like this going up.

I will say the lack of a real outdoor space and a garage is a big negative I think. We don't have a garage either, but installed a nice shed in our large backyard for storage. Plus we have a long driveway for parking, something else this new build lacks.

Development is moving right along on Georgia Ave: Plans filed to kick off Georgia Avenue redevelopment

Quote:
...Plans were just filed in Atlanta to kick off the redevelopment of Georgia Avenue, a collection of mural-covered low-rise buildings in Summerhill near the former Turner Field.

Construction is likely to start in October or November. Tenants could start opening in spring or summer 2018.

...

It’s about 30,000 square feet. The plan is to add other new buildings along the avenue that blend in with the historic structures.

Eric Kronberg of Kronberg Wall Architects LLC is leading the design, tasked at “breathing life into the existing buildings in a way that really respects the history,” Nelson said.

...

“We have one lease signed at this point,” Nelson said. “The rest are letter of intents ... We can’t say any names yet.”

The tenant mix likely will be heavy on food and beverage, he said.

...

Now, there are high hopes top chefs and retailers will find Georgia Avenue to be affordable, authentic space in an up-and-coming intown neighborhood.

...
Glad to see Kronberg involved. He does good work.

He's a hypocrite. The development on his property is SFH, with 2 car garages on a cul de sac.

If you are talking about "La France Walk", I think that is a good development too. You can't expect garages to disappear overnight. And the SFH will always be a common form of housing. But you got to realize it was still an uphill battle to even get to build this limited level of density.

Looks like any suburban housing development.

Maybe suburban is another county. Look at those setbacks, FARs, and lot sizes. Those are not allowed by any of our regular R zoning codes. Building denser SFHs like this requests special rezoning that takes months and tens of thousands of dollars to try to change. Anyone putting up that fight to built some more diverse housing options like these gets respect in my book.

Same thing as Hawthorne Park in Kirkwood and Glenwood Park, PD-H.
