The project will rise on a 5-acre site near the corner of Bolton Road and James Jackson Parkway, just southwest of a two-story commercial building at 2011 Bolton Road that has held Bellwood Coffee, among other tenants.

Property records show the project site was acquired in December for about $3.74 million by VCP Bolton LLC, a company registered in state business filings first by a managing partner of The Strategic Group and then by Trace McCreary, president and CEO of Varden Capital Properties. It was sold by SC Apartments LLC and Landlocked LLC, according to property records.

In April, Tellus Partners filed for a multifamily land development permit, which has since been posted, city records show. It has listed Atlanta-based English & Associates Architects as the project architect.

Newly submitted drawings lay out plans for a 220,519-square-foot project split between two buildings: one along Bolton Road to the north and another bordered by James Jackson Parkway to the east. Holding 114 one-bedrooms and 77 two-bedrooms, the project will rise to a maximum height of five stories, or 63 feet, plans show.

Plans also call for 361 parking spaces, an amenity package that includes a pool and dog park, and about 75,000 square feet of usable open space.

A Tellus Partners project webpage for the development calls it a “market rate apartment community in an area that is primed for rapid growth.”

“Over the past five years, the Upper Westside has transformed enormously,” it reads. “Gone are the days of empty warehouses of a bygone era. Today residents are treated to a premier live-work-play destination filled with award winning restaurants, boutique retailers, and eclectic art galleries.”

Unit sizes will range from 672 square feet to 1,177 square feet, according to Tellus’ website.

Tellus Partners principal Garrison McMillan didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from the company.
