330 units – Atlantic Realty announces plans
This story has been updated.
Atlantic Realty Partners has announced plans to build a five story 330-unit apartment complex on 9.4 acres at the corner of Church Street and Milscott Drive in greater Decatur.
According to a statement from the company sent to the Cross-Neighborhoods Committee, the DeKalb County Commission approved the company’s application on May 27.
Zoning records provided to Decaturish show that the Community Council in February recommended denying the project. The planning staff recommended approval with conditions.
“The site was previously occupied by a car dealership but has been vacant for years,” the statement from Atlantic Realty Partners says. “The multifamily complex, to be named ‘The Reserve’, will feature two ‘U-shaped’ buildings enclosing a terrace courtyard with landscaping and a swimming pool. … To maintain an urban feel, the buildings are situated directly adjacent to the street and will largely shield the parking lot from view. Additionally, the developer will install sidewalks and landscaping along both Church Street and Milscott Drive.”
