Urban Design Commission To Review 280 Elizabeth St. Project

UDC is next step in line of reviews for $45 million Inman Park mega-project.

The Atlanta Urban Design Commission is scheduled to hold a hearing Wednesday, Aug. 8 on the $45 million development project at 280 Elizabeth St. in Inman Park.

The hearing — schueduled for 4 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 55 Trinity Ave. — is over several variance requests to increase building heights for the project and lot consolidation:

  1. Applications for Type III Certificates of Appropriateness (CA3-12-132) for a variance to increase maximum building height for structures within 150’ of the boundary of any R-1 through R-5 residential district from 40’ to 63’; and to increase the maximum building height for structures located 150’ or more from the boundary of any R-1 through R-5 residential district from 52’ to 76’; and (CA3-12-128) for a new mixed-use development at 885 North Highland Avenue & 280 (aka 290) Elizabeth Street – Property is zoned PDMU/C-2/Inman Park Historic District (Subarea 3)/ Beltline.
  2. Application for a Type III Certificate of Appropriateness (CA3-12-171) for lot consolidation of multiple lots into one lot at 280 (aka 290) Elizabeth Street & 885 North Highland Avenue – Property is zoned PDMU/C-2/Inman Park Historic District (Subarea 3)/Beltline.

The project, spearheaded through a partnership between Atlanta developers South City Partners and JPX Works LLC, calls for the construction of 204 rental units, between 38,000 and 39,000 square feet of retail, and a 570-space parking deck.

The 3.4-acre lot is bounded by Elizabeth Street, North Highland and Lake avenues and the Inman Park Village.
