CONNOLLY, an Atlanta-based real estate developer and investor Wednesday announced Parkside on Dresden, a $70 million mixed-use project in Brookhaven’s Dresden Corridor, is now under construction. The four-acre site will be home to apartments and townhomes, retail and restaurant spaces and a six-level parking deck. The development will open in mid-2024.
“Parkside on Dresden will enhance the thriving, walkable Dresden corridor with luxury residential units and a curated selection of restaurants, shops, and service providers,” Timothy “J.R.” Connolly, chief executive officer, CONNOLLY, said in a press release. “We’ve designed this project to fit seamlessly into the surrounding community, which epitomizes intown living at its finest—it’s the modern Main Street.”
Developed by Terwilliger Pappas, the residential component of Parkside on Dresden is called Solis Dresden Village and is comprised of a five-story building which includes 176 apartment homes with a landscaped roof deck and pool. Seven townhomes provide additional residential options along Caldwell Road.
CONNOLLY is developing 30,000 square feet of sidewalk-facing real estate to accommodate 11 retail storefronts and four inline restaurant spaces, with a fifth freestanding restaurant located near the townhomes.
The retail tenant mix at Parkside on Dresden focuses will focus on “diverse culinary options, wellness services, independent boutiques and service providers,” according to the release. “We have substantial interest from both local and regional brands who want to open a storefront at Parkside on Dresden because it offers a unique environment with an extremely strong consumer base,” continues Connolly. “With very few opportunities left to establish a location along Dresden Drive, businesses are eager to be a part of the last remaining major development in this high-energy corridor.”
Parkside on Dresden is situated at 1350 Dresden Drive, between Caldwell Road and Parkside Drive, just a short walk from the Brookhaven-Oglethorpe MARTA station in Brookhaven.
Terwilliger Pappas has assembled a team of Atlanta-based firms to make Parkside on Dresden a reality, including: general contractor New South, architects Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, and engineering firm Kimley-Horn.
