Trammel Crow Residential has filed plans for a project that would bring more than 100 apartments to an abandoned property in East Atlanta Village, signaling what could be a shot in the arm for the commercial district. Bisnow reported earlier this month that the Dallas-based developers filed rezoning permits at 1205 Metropolitan Ave., a roughly two-acre site between Moreland and Flat Shoals avenues. Since then, details have emerged to provide a little more insight. According to the plans, the project would include a total of 120 units: 14 studios, 71 one bedrooms and 35 two-bedroom units. A dog park, a pool, a gym and 107 off-street parking spaces would likely be included in the development dubbed "Alexan Village Flats." Demolition permits were approved in October and word has it that the site — which includes an old fire station — is currently being cleared. Attempts to contact Trammel Crow for more information were unsuccessful this week.
Trammel Crow and the Alexan brand have broken into the Atlanta market in a big way recently. Alexan Town Brookhaven has been up and running since 2010, and additional developments are under construction in Decatur (Alexan Decatur, estimated completion date Dec. 2015); Vinings (Alexan CityView Atlanta, estimated completion date March 2016) and Inman Park (Alexan at Krog Street, estimated completion date summer 2015). As Bisnow reported, Trammel Crow is also bringing a 216-unit project to Fuqua's Kroger-anchored mixed-use project in Glenwood Park, which also recently broke ground.
No renderings or more specific details have popped up for the proposed EAV development, but all of the other projects provide insight into what might be coming. According to the Trammel Crow website, the Brookhaven, Decatur, Vinings and Inman Park developments all contain units with average square footages between 848 and 921 — and while the Decatur project emits a slightly different vibe, they all have roughly the same aesthetic as well. They're just a bunch of black and white lines, obviously, but elevations for the EAV project suggest it would have a similar look.
