A zoning advisory board will consider writing a letter in support of a plan to redevelop the historic Pratt-Pullman Yard in Kirkwood.

The item is on the agenda of Neighborhood Planning Unit – O for Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 6:30 pm. NPU-O meets at the Branham Recreation Center, located at 2051 Delano Drive Northeast, Atlanta, GA.

The plans call for redeveloping the 26 acre site as 150 town homes with two common areas. Each unit will have 3 or 4 bedrooms and cost around $325,000. The historic structures will be office and event space with a potential restaurant space.

The Pullman Yard is owned by Georgia Building Authority, and the state has requested the letter of support from the NPU, according to the meeting agenda.

Progress on the plan is likely to be slow because of the property’s status as a historic site and its current ownership.

Developer Stan Sugarman, part of the development team behind the project, told Decaturish that,”Pullman is years out, unfortunately.”

    townhomes built around green space? I thought they were supposed to stare at the neighbors garage on an alley.

    and by the way, love the data you are bringing us. Very professional and interesting.

    Not very reassuring to hear the project described as “years out” just because of its’ historic status and because it is owned by of the State of Ga. Bldg. Authority. If this is what the community decides it wants, let the government ‘experts’ weigh the pros and cons and move forward. It has been sitting vacant for how many years? 25?
