A mixed-use project that would create 235 apartments, 10,000 square feet of retail space and a seven-story parking garage will be considered Friday morning by the Decatur Downtown Development Authority.
The project would be built behind and in front of the tall office building at 315 W. Ponce de Leon Ave.
The project appears to have proper zoning already
If the authority votes for a resolution of approval, the developer, Carter, could apply for building permits.
People who live around the proposed building site have complained about the size and scope of the project, saying it would lower their property values and create congestion, parking and traffic problems.
Residents of the six-story 335 West Ponce condo building have criticized the height of the parking garage that would be built near the condo.
The meeting starts at 8 a.m. in city hall. The agenda calls for:
Review of proposed development at 315 W. Ponce de Leon Board will consider a mixed-use development proposal for 315 W. Ponce de Leon and review the project based on the zoning standards in Section 10.18.2 and 10.19.3.
