All they did was take the baricades from the site. Stop overexaggerating.

Yet more Beltline adjacent surface parking. Looking at the developers portfolio they are building more urban projects in Buford and Alpharetta than on the Beltline. I don't get it.

Proposed zoning change could reshape Piedmont Center

https://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/...-buckhead.html
Quote:
Atlanta City Council member Shook is introducing a proposed zoning change to the area that could allow Ardent to develop underused parts of the giant office complex. The change is potentially important. For example, it could lead to new apartment towers being built at Piedmont Center and other developments. Mill Creek Residential is following the same model at the nearby Prominence project.

The new zoning change could also give flexibility to Ardent and other developers if they want less parking in future projects. While cars aren’t going away, more people want the option to walk or bike in Buckhead. Besides the Path 400 trail, the Buckhead MARTA station is a short walk away.

The new zoning district for Piedmont Center and surrounding areas will be presented tonight at a Buckhead neighborhood planning unit.

Unfortunately, that type of backwardness is typical of the region. Some of the best projects often get built far away from transit and do not connect to anything....

No, it was a bit more than just the fencing. I was watching it live and they also had bricks, rebar, heavy looking long pipes, etc. They actually built 3 separate barricades in the street with all the crap they grabbed.

Parking is an incredibly expensive part of overall construction costs. Surface parking on average costs between $5,000 and $10,000 to construct PER PARKING SPACE. Structured parking is exponentially more expensive and can cost $25,000 to $50,000+ per space. Underground Parking - forget about it - you're talking $50,000+ per space. Developers have a financial pro-forma to hit and trust me they don't enjoy sinking so much money into parking. But if the space allows, they're going to use the path of least resistance and lowest cost.

Don't beat up the developer or design team... demand changes at the City level on mandatory parking minimums or incentivize developers to be more thoughtful about parking with F.A.R bonuses or financial benefits.

'Destination precinct’ could be coming to Edgehill Avenue in West Midtown

https://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/..._news_headline

Quote:
Representatives from the firm presented their plans June 2 to Neighborhood Planning Unit E for a mixed-use project at 690 11<sup>th</sup> St., across the street from the popular Six Feet Under restaurant. Drapac purchased the site in February for $4.4 million. A 1-story warehouse is now located on the property, which is just north, across Edgehill Street, from the former Atlanta Humane Society campus on Howell Mill Road. Drapac bought the humane society property for $11 million.

“We will basically control the majority of Edgehill Avenue and that will give us a good opportunity to create a hospitality, food and beverage, and retail strip and destination precinct,” said Alex Hay, executive director of property for Drapac.

Preliminary illustrations of a 225-foot high residential building with retail on the ground floor was presented at the NPU-E meeting.

Some residents attending the meeting worried the building was too tall and suggested Drapac take off three stories. More discussion on building design is expected to take place as the project moves forward. No illustrations of the potential office building with retail were presented.

Why were “residents” worried about it being too tall?

It's probably the five people that live above West Egg Cafe that are complaining.

Yeah it's hilarious that residents most of whom live in rentals in the area are complaining about developments being too tall. Doesn't look much taller than the Star Metals office building or the Star Metals hotel that was proposed and this isn't even on Howell Mill...they just don't want their views of the skyline messed up.

It looks like a pretty nice development. I'd like to see it get built.

Midtown DRC Agenda June 9, 2020

UPDATED APPLICATION: Cousins - 901 West Peachtree St
New mixed-use office tower proposed at 901 West Peachtree Street. The site is
bordered by 7th Street to the south, West Peachtree Street to the west and 8th Street to
the north. The 32-story building will have approximately 8,600 SF of ground floor retail
and 471,000 SF of office space. Approximately 941 parking spaces will be provided in an
integrated 9-story parking deck partially beneath the tower. The fully screened deck will
be accessible from a full curbcut along 8th Street with egress only along 7th Street.
Angled loading is provided on-site via a continuous one-way north-south covered
driveway with ingress from 8th Street and egress at 7th Street.

UPDATED APPLICATION: Portman – 1020 Spring St

A new project incorporating the historic H.M. Patterson & Son-Spring Hill Chapel
building and garden as the centerpiece of a mixed-use development with three
additional high-rises. The site is located north of 10th St. between Spring St. and Williams
St. A regional DRI review is triggered by the overall density which includes a 36-story
~375 unit residential tower
with ground floor retail at the southeast corner of the site as
phase I. Following in Phase II would be a ~350 key 24-story hotel with ground floor retail
at the north end of the site and a 34-story ~700,000 SF podium office tower along the
western side of the site. Vehicular access is proposed from one existing curbcut (on
Spring St.) and five new curbcuts including two along Spring St., one along 10th St. (for
both truck and standard vehicles) and two along Williams St. (the southern for standard
vehicles and the northern for trucks only). There are two screened parking decks holding
a total of ~1,650 spaces.
I thought the office tower was said to be 26 stories in the last application.
