Three projects in Chamblee are plowing ahead, transforming the formerly factory and warehouse-oriented Peachtree Industrial Boulevard into a more livable corridor.
At the western edge of the city, near the Brookhaven border, Peachtree Crossing is taking shape. An upscape shopping center anchored by a Whole Foods, the development by S.J. Collins Enterprises should be complete by summer 2017.
Further to the east, and across the street, a major mixed-use development is well underway. Parkview on Peachtree, which broke ground earlier this year, will bring more than 500 housing units, 40,000 square feet of boutique retail, and 14,000 square feet of office space to a site adjacent to Chamblee’s trail network, tying the project together with a nearby park and the Chamblee MARTA Station.
The project, designed by Cooper Carry, is being developed by CONNOLLY in affiliation with Spruce Street Partners and Terwilliger Pappas.
Finally, just a stone’s throw from Parkview, more residences are rising as part of the Olmstead. A unique project, the development will feature not just standard apartments, but live-work units, a few rental townhouses, and space for two restaurants with patios. Developer Cocke Finkelstein Inc. hopes to have the MARTA-adjacent project finished by year end.
As one of the fastest growing cities in the country, it is no surprise that construction is enveloping Chamblee. In addition to the active projects, there are plans in place for at least one more apartment development in the area.
