North Decatur Square, with mod vibe, gets council approval

New, 11 comments

The project will bring a grocery store, retail, and residences to Decatur

North Decatur Square, a mixed-use development at Church Street and North Decatur Road, is officially a go.

Last night, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved rezoning for the project, slated to bring 300 apartment units, retail spaces, and restaurants to the area. The development will be anchored by Georgia’s first 365 by Whole Foods; announced last year, the store is a less expensive version of the popular grocery chain.

The S.J. Collins Enterprises' project will claim a B-shaped site formerly occupied by Nalley Infiniti Decatur, adding to a development boom in the corridor that includes the new Selig Enterprises’ Walmart complex and Fuqua Development’s massive Decatur Crossing. The area will soon be unrecognizable from just a couple of years ago.

According to a presentation given to the board, the 13.3-acre site will include almost 90,000 square feet of retail space, with 35,000 square feet of that devoted to the 365 store. The development will include an acre of open park space, Wi-Fi connectivity throughout, multi-use trails and pocket parks, and an array of restaurants, from chef-driven to fast casual.

In addition to the residences, restaurants, and retail, the development will also boast a staggering 854 parking spaces, mixed between a deck and large surface lots.

A site plan for the development.

Look for the project to be delivered in late 2018.
