A Jury Trial is scheduled for Oct 5th, 2015 for a lawsuit filed against the City Council for denying a zoning application of a subdivision of 53 houses.
City council stated the land was viable for redevelopment with the upcoming ‘District’ Proposal. The City hired Urban Design Associates to design a commercial district & downtown. The area is approximately 800 acres, and the largest Land Stakeholder is Tech Park Atlanta.
Tech Park Atlanta wants houses, not urban buildings on this property.
In August 2104, JC Flex LLC (Tech Park Atlanta, TPA) petitioned to amend the Zoning Map to allow for a Subdivision of 53 Houses in Tech Park.
City Council denied the application 5-2.
