The team behind a medical office project near Piedmont Hospital is allegedly working with surrounding neighbors to make sure they're comfortable with how the development, uh, develops. (Isn't that a novel concept ... cough, Fuqua, cough cough). The 200,000 square-foot MOB at the intersection of Peachtree and Collier roads will take over a site currently home to a Chick-fil-A, a liquor store, a laundromat and, formerly, Harry's in a Hurry. According to a letter sent on behalf of the Brookwood Hills Community Club — by noted local PR man Tony Wilbert — the seven-story project will include parking decks and a "reconfigured" Chick-fil-A, as well as a second, unnamed "retail establishment."
All of that requires rezoning, of course, and developer Cornerstone has, according to Wilbert, been playing nice with the Brookwood Hills folks. After primary concerns about the building's height and the existing residential zoning lines staying put, the groups are now apparently addressing other issues. "Based on ongoing feedback from neighbors," the aforementioned letter said, "the Brookwood Hills committee is currently seeking to negotiate certain condition related to construction, landscaping, signage, parking and traffic flow." The application is expected to be heard at the December meeting of the Atlanta Zoning Review Board.
