The April meeting of the Midtown Development Review Committee (DRC) earlier this week netted a few new projects and updates on two already in the hopper.
Jumping on the residential tower bandwagon, Lennar Multifamily Communities unveiled plans for a 27-story tower. Proposed on 13th Street, between Juniper Street and Piedmont Avenue, the tower could have 307 units atop seven stories of parking. If approved, the project would join already underway YOO on the Park, Azure on the Park, and Alta at the Park in the area bordering Piedmont Park.
Two projects that have been on the boards for a while also came before the DRC for more feedback. Both the High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) and The Standard received additional comments for requested revisions. With a pending announcement about the HPCC in the coming week, Portman Holdings is likely getting antsy to get the details sorted out.
Also discussed at the meeting was the potential demolition of two old homes on Juniper Street to provide additional parking for Einstein's and Joe's. That's a good sign for local businesses, but isn't Midtown in the business of eradicating parking lots these days?
