Neighborhood Planning Unit – O on Tuesday will review rezoning plans that would make way for a 33-unit townhome project in the Edgewood neighborhood, its meeting agenda this week shows.
The applicant and owner behind the project are Williams Teusink attorney Kyle Williams and Parkwood Living LLC, respectively, a rezoning application on file with the city of Atlanta shows. Along with a rezoning from R-5 to MR-3, the development team is requesting a Comprehensive Development Plan amendment from Low-Density Residential to Medium-Density residential for the 1.15-acre project site, which sits on the northwestern corner of Hardee Street and Wesley Avenue.
The project would replace a vacant building formerly home to New Saint John’s Baptist Church, a single-family dwelling, and a surface parking lot with almost three dozen townhomes with an expected selling price of $265,000 per unit, according to the rezoning application. Residences would be split among five separate buildings and be among common area green spaces and other shared amenities.
The development would rise at 1512 – 1526 Hardee Street NE, about half-a-mile south of the Edgewood-Candler Park MARTA Station. The project site is between single-family dwellings on Mayson Avenue to the west and the Edgewood Court Apartments to the east along Hardee Street.
“The proposed development targets the multi-family residential housing needs in the heart of the Edgewood community as desired by the Edgewood Redevelopment Plan in the CDP,” a summary penned by Williams reads. “Further, the Property’s proximity to the Edgewood/Candler Park MARTA Station and the Edgewood Shopping District and amenities make the Property a focal point for multi-family residential development.”
