Songy Highroads has plans to develop a 210-unit mixed-use project in the Wildwood neighborhood of Buckhead, according to application documents filed with the city last month.
The proposed six-story, 243,000-square-foot project would rise at 1850 Howell Mill Road NW, a 2.7-acre site with a surface parking lot and food-truck park bordered by Howell Mill Road to the east, Beck Street to the north, Emery Street to the west, and an I-75 on-ramp to the south.
The Alpharetta-based developer is requesting several variations, including a reduction in required minimum open space from 47 percent of gross land area to 39 percent. Plans call for about 65,000 square feet of usable open space, including 32,210 square feet of landscaped areas and plazas.
Site plans for the development show it would hold one-bedrooms through three-bedrooms, as well as just under 2,000 square feet of coworking space and about 3,700 square feet of retail and food and beverage space.
A future phase could also include 32,000 square feet of office space along Howell Mill Road, according to site drawings.
The project would provide 362 parking spaces, along with 52 bicycle spaces.
Listed as the architect alongside project drawings is Cooper Carry.
The owner of the site is listed alongside the Buckhead address of Songy Highroads in application documents as Eighteen Fifty Howell Mill LLC, a company managed by Peter Blum.
The project site was acquired by that LLC in a multiparcel acquisition for $5.55 million in 2006, according to Fulton County property records.
A spokesperson for Songy Highroads didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.
