More detailed renderings reveal what the project, called High Street Atlanta, could look like.

The large-scale project from GID Development was first announced at the beginning of last year, and drew attention when Bill Torpy of the AJC – whose offices would be leveled by the project – weighed in.

A change is coming to Atlanta, one that everyone wants to be part of. Welcome to the city’s connected urban lifestyle quarter, the development’s website boasts.

The website makes clear the developer’s desire for the project to be associated with Atlanta’s more urban areas, as images of people jogging at Piedmont Park and others enjoying coffee at Westside Provisions District are mixed into the renderings.

High Street would total to a large-scale 8 million square feet of development, including 400,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 1 million square feet of office space, a 750 room hotel and 3,000 residential units, per GID’s website. The project would also feature new streets, landscaped promenades, and a few parks and plazas.

Although the development would be located across from MARTA Dunwoody Station, 8,500 parking spots are included in the plans – not exactly music to the ears of commuters already stuck in traffic in the area.

  1. Going to be honest – that’s just about better than anything that is proposed ITP. Wow. It’s almost what Streets of Buckhead / Buckhead Atlanta / Shops at Buckhead Atlanta should’ve been.

  2. Right now at 5:00 it takes 20 minutes to go a mile.

    Keep your high rises we’re full (said no city official ever when there’s money like this to be had)

    1. You underestimate Dunwoody City Council. They’ve pretty much already squashed Crown Towers plans, and the developers will be going back to drawing board. I truly hope High Street does get developed as is, but the city council could change things. It appears High Street is going beyond what Dekalb County zoning approved of before Dunwoody became a city. I’m sure this will change as this progresses and the developers approach the suburbran old mindset of the city council.

  3. Traffic is already gridlocked. Glad our company is moving out of this area!!! Sit at red lights for 3 cycles as is! Smh

  4. Here go all the people talking about traffic. Not that you’re all wrong, but this area is going to be awesome if this gets off of the ground. If you don’t see traffic, odds are it’s because you are in a place not a lot of people want to be. Depending on your perspective, traffic and congestion are a good sign for a development. It makes for a vital, lively experience. Aside from that you could take MARTA here and walk across the street and barely see a brake light. From my place in Grant Park, I could get there door-to-door in probably 45 minutes (39 according to google transit directions). Anyone who lives within a 5-10 minute drive of MARTA anywhere in the region probably has a range of 15-60 minutes to do the same.
