Plans for a mixed use project at 1016 Monroe Drive are moving forward.
The developer is Fuqua Development and the project site is about 4 acres along the Beltline’s Northeast Trail.
“Currently in the early, conceptual phases, a new proposed project at 1016 Monroe Drive could bring affordable housing, commercial activity, jobs, and density in support of future transit connectivity along the Atlanta BeltLine,” the project description on the Beltline’s website says. “New amenities for the surrounding neighborhoods potentially include a grocery store, restaurants, a hotel, multifamily homes, and possibly a small number of townhomes. ABI currently owns ~1.4 acres of the overall 4-acre site. The sale of ABI’s property is contingent upon several factors, including affordable housing and significant community engagement.”
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported the hotel would be 11 stories tall.
There will be a public input meeting about the project on April 10 at Grady High School, located at 929 Charles Allen Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30309. The meeting starts at 6 p.m.
Curbed Atlanta reports that residents near the project are concerned about what the amount of traffic it will generate in their neighborhoods.
