If you drive around Avondale Estates, you've seen this vast expanse of concrete a block or two off the main drag, East College Avenue.
A fence topped with barbed wire surrounds the old Fenner Dunlop factory property. The city government annexed the land in December 2010. A Patch story said,
The district, rezoned for mixed use, allows for a combination of residential and retail and is divided into several zones so that density and height gradually increase as you move away from the Tudor Village in the city's central business district. The rezoning allows for up to 556 residential units with up to 400 designated as multi-family.
What would you like to see located on this land? It's zoned for mixed use, but don't let that limit your ideas.
