Avondale Estates will discuss Euramex development during work session
It’s been almost a year since a developer purchased the 13-acre Fenner Dunlop property in Avondale Estates with the intention of creating a mixed-use development.
But details of the project planned by Euramex Management have been scarce. The public could get its first real glimpse at the company’s plans during the Avondale Estates City Commission’s work session on Aug. 19, which begins at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at City Hall, located at 21 N Avondale Rd. All meetings are open to the public.
“One of the agenda items for the Board of Mayor and Commissioners (BOMC) Work Session is the discussion of the Euramex development,” the announcement from the city says. “Euramex Management Group purchased the Fenner Dunlop property in the City in October of 2014. The property sits on 13 acres, just west of Laredo Drive and north of Parry Street. Mayor (Jonathan) Elmore invites all to attend the meeting to hear the BOMC discuss the potential development.”
In addition to Fenner Dunlop, Euramex also bought the city’s so-called “Erector Set” property at College Avenue and Maple Street. The building was constructed in 2008 and was supposed to be the new home of the Finders Keepers Consignment store. It was all part of a larger plan by developer Century/AG LLC that fell apart. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2010.
The Euramex project is the first large scale development in the city since the Century project failed. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that city officials were “encouraged” by a recent meeting with officials from the company.
Euramex is also planning a project in Kirkwood. The company is proposing a development of 250 to 260 apartments behind Kirkwood Station.
