Scott Feld drew no opponents to his plan to renovate a former leasing office into a branch of the residential cleaning service franchise The Maids Home Services, now located on Barfield Road in Sandy Springs.
“I have no plans to redevelop,” he said about the 1,620-square-foot location on a half-acre parcel at North River Run and Dunwoody Place, owned by Chamblee-based Silver Tree Investments. “I just want to locate a business in the existing structure.”
Likewise, Midtown-based Selig Enterprises attracted no opposition for a senior independent living facility on 4 acres it will manage after Midtown-based Dunwoody Place Venture builds the 130-unit structure at Spalding Drive and Holcomb Bridge Road.
The applicant seeks to reduce the 1.25 spaces-per-unit parking requirements on the currently undeveloped property in the Sandy Springs panhandle, adjacent to the Spalding Corners shopping center.
“Our extensive history with other senior living facilities clearly indicates that .85 spaces per unit is generous parking for this type of facility,” said Kevin Curry, Selig’s vice president of construction and property management.
Community members Lauren Paretta of Glenridge Heights and Julian Thorne of the High Point Civic Association met with Jessica Hill of Buckhead law firm Morris Manning & Martin and other representatives of Marietta-based developer Wood Partners and Sandy Springs-based architects The Preston Partnership.
Their topic was a 168-unit multifamily community on 8 acres at 5610 and 5620 Glenridge Drive near Johnson Ferry Road, next to an existing strip mall.
“This is a site that makes sense for apartments,” Thorne said. “It’s a transition from residential to commercial [use].”
Paretta said she had no opposition to the application for the project, to be called Alta Glenridge Springs.
“It looks like a good plan,” she said.
However, the next public meeting for the applicant is the Sept. 20 planning commission meeting, not Aug. 16.
“We are going to postpone it for a month because we are working out some issues with the owner unrelated to zoning,” Hill said about Buckhead Trading and Investment Co. Glenridge, an investment group related to Buckhead-based Easlan Capital.
