A few years ago, who would have imagined that Dunwoody could one day boast a mixed-use development with as many condos proposed as are in the pipeline across the entire City of Atlanta?
Following a recent Dunwoody Planning Commission meeting, it seems the OTP city is on track to receive just that.
According to the Dunwoody Crier, the commission gave a unanimous thumbs-up to North Carolina-based developer Grubb Properties’s plan to inject 900 condos into four towers. (That’s roughly five-times as many units as Midtown’s No. 2 Opus Place project—Atlanta’s tallest proposed tower—would have.)
And that’s after some shrinkage; Grubb’s initial proposal called for 1,200 apartments instead—most of which would have ultimately been converted into condos, though.
The 900 planned for-sale units, as well as the accompanying parking decks, would be part of a mammoth mixed-use complex called Park at Perimeter Center East.
It would also bring some 500,000 square feet of new office space (that’s comparable to Ponce City Market’s office allotment), roughly 12,000 square feet of retail, some for-sale townhomes, and almost three acres of green space replete with a 12-foot-wide multi-use trail.
The condo towers would rise to be no taller than 14 stories each, and the development’s new construction would replace three buildings just east of Perimeter Mall, one of which used to serve as the Dunwoody City Hall.
Most of the 19.4-acre site, however, is currently just a mishmash of parking lots, so many local leaders are excited to see that change.
At last week’s meeting, the Dunwoody Homeowners Association also cemented its support for Grubb’s project, according to the Dunwoody Crier.
Elsewhere, Grubb is building 240 apartments in Grant Park.
