HHNA Community Affairs Chair Brian Ray has been doing an amazing job keeping us updated on the development going on around Chamblee. We’ve now mapped these proposed development projects on an easy to use, interactive map on our website, here: https://huntleyhills.net/area-development-map/. Check it out and let us know what you think!
The developer, seeks approval of a Zoning Map Amendment from NR-1 to VR in order to demolish 6 existing single family homes, combine the properties, and then develop the site with 37 fee simple townhomes in seven buildings developed on a combination of publicly dedicated streets and alleys and a single entrance on McJenkins Drive.
(Note – this project is revised from the project as presented in June of 2015) The developer, JEH Homes, proposes to develop the site with a private street system and 39 townhouses that are 22 ft. wide and have two-car garages. The boundary of the site has been modified to eliminate a portion of the site on the northwestern corner that includes the private street that connects to Pierce Drive in order to accommodate expansion of the store and construction of a row of parking for Quik Trip. The street system for the townhouses has a single driveway connection to Chamblee-Dunwoody Way. It consists of a series of private streets and alleys culminating in dead ends with hammer-head turnarounds without interconnection to the adjacent Walgreens and Quik Trip properties.
Of the 39 proposed townhouses, 14 would be rear-entry with front doors facing Chamblee-Dunwoody Road and Chamblee-Dunwoody Way. The remaining 25 townhouses would be front entry units that back up to interior landscape courts. The fronts of the units are finished in brick and stone while the sides and rears are finished with siding. The only on-site amenity is a mail kiosk and community fire pit. An underground stormwater management facility is shown on the southeastern corner of the site.
