There will be a community meeting on Wednesday evening, Nov. 2, regarding a multifamily development near the Decatur Heights neighborhood.

The development would be next to the intersection of North Arcadia Avenue and East Ponce de Leon Avenue. It will likely include 250 apartments and a Publix grocery store, the Decatur Heights Neighborhood Association says.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Decatur Library Auditorium, located at 215 Sycamore Street in Decatur.

Developers are seeking a rezoning for properties at 2700 Grove Street, 153, 161, 165 and 173 Grove Place, 2688, 2700, 2706 and 2716 E. Ponce de Leon Avenue. The rezoning would allow for the development of a mixed use project on the site that would include apartments, a grocery store and other retail.

According to DHNA, proximity to the Avondale MARTA station, which is also being redeveloped to include apartments, is a key selling point. The assemblage includes parcels in both incorporated and unincorporated Decatur. The developer is Alliance Realty.
