Proxima 2085 Marietta Development LLC submitted plans to the City of Atlanta requiring the rezoning of property located at 2051, 2085, and 2095 Marietta Boulevard. The rezoning would accommodate the redevelopment of the property into a mixed development within the collective 6.712-acre parcel. Additionally, the developer requests a comprehensive development plan change to be consistent with the proposed rezoning requirements.
Neighborhood Planning Unit D will be reviewing the request to rezone the property from I-1 to MRC-2 and a land-use change of industrial to medium density mixed-use during their February Meeting. The Atlanta Zoning Board of Review will hold the public hearing on the requests during their March 3 or 10, 2022 meeting.
According to application documents, the proposed mixed-use development will include approximately 350 multifamily units, 50 townhomes, and 5,000 square feet of commercial space. The proposed monthly rates for the residential units range from $1,550 to $3,500. Parking for the development will be accommodated primarily in a parking garage along with limited surface parking.
The applicant implies the requests are justified because there are limited properties available for redevelopment suitable for a mixed-use development as proposed. The immediate area surrounding the property has been an area of transition in recent years which means most properties are either developed, under construction, or proposed for redevelopment with uses that are not industrial in nature. Additionally, the proposed uses are suitable given the adjacent commercial, residential, and light industrial uses. As noted above, the proposed uses will add new residential and commercial uses to complement the mix of uses in the area. The current uses of the property are not additive to the Bolton neighborhood, and rezoning would enable redevelopment of the property with uses that activate the property and align with development in the immediate area.
This projected completion of the mixed-use development is in 2024.
