Decatur’s City Commission is set to consider rezoning the city-owned Callaway Building at 120 West Trinity Place from institutional to commercial for redevelopment as a mixed-use apartment building. According to Decaturish, DeKalb County currently occupies the building but the county’s lease ends in October of this year. “The Decatur Downtown Development Authority has reached an agreement with Cousin’s Properties to purchase the site and redevelop it as a mixed use project once the County vacates the existing office building,” the staff report for the rezoning request says. It could be the future site of 370 apartment units, according to the report.
