A proposed 24-unit multi-family condo development, tucked in the woods near Emory University, could soon begin construction.

For more than six months, some neighbors of the Briarcliff Road development have sought to block the project from moving forward, citing the danger of falling ice from a nearby radio tower. However, the motives weren’t likely all that altruistic, and the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that developer Minerva USA is on the verge of moving forward with the development.

The proposal has been scaled back since it was first revealed last year, and plans now indicate there will be three levels of residences, split between two buildings. The units, ranging from around 1,500 square feet to nearly 3,000 square feet, will sit atop 60 spaces of covered parking. Four outdoor guest spaces will also be available.

A large portion of the 2.2-acre site will be left natural, providing a stream buffer that will be made available as an amenity to the surrounding community.

A possible schedule for development has not been released.
