Three new mixed-use projects came before the Midtown Development Review Committee (DRC) at the June 24 meeting.
According to a report on the Midtown Atlanta website, the committee reacted positively to creative design decisions by the development teams, noting in particular that two of these projects – 22 Fourteenth Street (Related Group)? and 1010 West Peachtree Street (The Hanover Company) – have offered creative solutions for concealing parking decks. 22 Fourteenth would apply decorative screening , while 1010 West would hide parking decks behind the storefronts.
22 Fourteenth Street: Related Group presented a proposal for a 400 unit high-rise residential tower with 6,500 SF of ground-floor retail on the southwest corner of 14th Street and West Peachtree. The project, in conjunction with Novare’s proposed 1163 Peachtree, at 14th & West Peachtree Street intersection will anchor the two remaining corners facing One Atlanta Center and Regions Plaza. These two proposed developments together will help create a more vibrant street-level retail environment at that intersection with an additional 18,000 SF of facing retail space. The development team and the committee discussed several design refinements that will be reflected in updated plans and reviewed electronically within the next month.
1010 West Peachtree Street: The Hanover Company has proposed a mid-rise residential building with 328 apartment units and 13,000 SF of retail on 10th Street between West Peachtree and Spring Street. The street level retail was well-designed and positively received by the DRC. The development team anticipates returning to the DRC in August with updates to the site plan related to loading and access along West Peachtree Street.
Azure on the Park: Atlantic Realty Partners came to the DRC to get early stage feedback on a proposed two-building development at Piedmont Avenue between 10th Street and 11th Street. The project is a five-story building adjacent to a 24-story residential tower that together will total 330 apartment units and 2,100 SF of retail. Atlantic Realty is concurrently seeking a rezoning on the five parcels that comprise the overall development site and plans to return to the DRC in August to revisit the project.
