Plans to erect a four-story mixed-use midrise in the heart of Old Fourth Ward are underway. Charlotte-based The Whitaker Group has submitted several building permit applications with the City of Atlanta to construct the restaurant, retail, and residential project, at 479 Edgewood Avenue SE, from the ground-up. There would also be a rooftop deck, according to the plans. The land is currently home to a parking lot and sits adjacent The Sound Table and catawampus to the recently-expanded CHURCH bar.

It’s unclear what kind of residential space would be included in the project but a zoning change application from early-2020 indicated the units would be “short- and long-term dwelling” units. There are also plans for a lounge and community space in the nearly 19,000-square-foot building. The Whitaker Group was not immediately available for comment.

The small, 0.13-acre lot was acquired in late-2019 for $1,100,000, according to public sales records. Atlanta-based Plexus R+D is the yet-to-be-named project’s architect and Walter Jordan of The DWRC Group, who has a foothold in the area in securing liquor licenses for many of the neighboring restaurants, is listed as having filed the permits.
