Permits and renderings suggest an Inman Park property near the Beltline could be reborn as a more attractive mixed-use hub.
Plans call for the conversion of a 1950s warehouse property that fronts DeKalb Avenue into a mix of retail, restaurant, and office uses. More specifically, the redo would “create five retail shells, one assembly, and remainder office,” per a permit application.
Alterations to the site would include additional parking, new overhead doors, and revamped landscaping and lighting. The property entails about 25,000 square feet in the Beltline overlay district, records show.
Permits indicate the architect is Square Feet Studio, whose recent projects include Inman Park’s Bread & Butterfly, Staplehouse, and Tap on Ponce in the Central Food Hall of Ponce City Market. The firm’s website calls the project simply “900 DeKalb.”
The site is about three blocks east of where the Beltline’s Eastside Trail will slip through the Krog Street Tunnel.
Records indicate the owner—PK DeKalb LLC—claimed the property in 2008 for $1.45 million. We’ve asked for a timeline on the project’s groundbreaking and completion and will post any updates that come.
