The Atlanta Zoning Review Board reviewed and recommended the approval of a request to rezone properties submitted by Jefferson Beltline LLC. Plans include rezoning a 1.03-acre parcel to construct a mixed-use development and related accessory uses. The current industrial zoning designation does not allow for multi-family residential or commercial uses.
Neighborhood Planning Unit – K reviewed the request to rezone 1060 Jefferson Street from I-2/Beltline to MRC-3/Beltline in December 2021 and recommended approval of the request.
As reported by What Now Atlanta last month, the rezoning request is to allow the construction of a mixed-use development with approximately 291 multi-family units and approximately 18,000 square feet of non-residential space. Parking will be accommodated in structured parking that will be constructed on the property as part of the proposed building and accessed from Jefferson Street. Parking will be housed in structured parking that will be built on the property as part of the proposed building and accessed from Jefferson Street.
The property is designated Mixed Use by the comprehensive development plan and is located in the Industrial character area. As argued by the applicant, the proposed MRC-3 zoning is compatible with the comprehensive development plan designation. While the proposed zoning is not necessarily aligned with the Industrial character area, the development trend in the broader region is more aligned with the type of development proposed by the application.
According to City documents, 45 units will be affordable, with rents ranging from $759 to $1,550 monthly. Market rate residential units will have a monthly rental rate of $1,600 to $2,560. As currently proposed, there will be 150 studio units, 80 1-bedroom units, and 61 two-bedroom units ranging in size from 500-to 900 square feet.
