Brookhaven City Council has voted to approve a 28-unit townhome development on N. Druid Hills Road.
The vote came after months of dispute between the developer and surrounding neighbors.The application was deferred by the Council several times in an attempt to give the developer and residents time to work out a compromise. But many neighbors still came to the council’s meeting to voice their concerns about traffic and density.
The homes are proposed at 1475 N. Druid Hills Road, the 3.9 acre site of the North Atlanta Gospel Chapel.
At the Sept. 24 meeting, Doug Dillard, an attorney representing the developer, agreed to reduce the density of the project from 31 to 28 units in addition to about about 20 other conditions.
“We’ve tried the best we know how to meet with the community and address the issues,” Dillard said. “We’ve been very amenable to try to sit down and work out all of our differences.”
Dillard said the homes are proposed to be around 2,500 to 3,000 square feet with a price range of about $500,000 and up.
