Midtown’s Development Review Committee is set to assess new plans for a few significant projects at its upcoming meeting. That’s pretty much become the norm in the booming subdistrict.

More specifically, the DRC is expected to discuss on Tuesday two new applications for developments that could change high-traffic sites.

The most exciting appears to be developer Greystar’s vision for 1282 Peachtree Street, where the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta is located.

It’s unclear what might happen to the existing structures if Greystar’s project pans out. Officials with Greystar, which is part of the team behind downtown’s parking deck-topping tower project and several other projects around town, didn’t respond to Curbed Atlanta’s request for more information.

But the DRC docket includes mention of plans for a new 34-story mixed-use development with more than 6,000 square feet of retail and 284 residences, spanning more than 314,000 square feet.

The project also calls for a 12-story parking podium with 319 spaces at the site, the southwest corner of where Peachtree Street meets 17th Street.

“The Peachtree Street frontage includes the street-facing retail, while the 17th Street frontage provides a residential lobby area,” the application notes.

DRC officials are also expected to review a proposal by 10th Street Ventures, which is looking to develop a six-story residential complex with 54 units—including 14 adaptive-reuse and 40 short-term lease units—where 13th Street meets Crescent Avenue.

The existing restaurants at the project site—South City Kitchen, Veranda, and Tin Lizzy’s—would remain along Crescent Avenue, per the application.
