Beltline High-Rise Developers Release Conceptual Design Study; TCR 'Flexible' on Height of Structures
ATLANTA, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Trammell Crow Residential, which has filed a zoning application for two residential high-rises in the Northeast section of Atlanta's proposed beltline, has released a conceptual design study of the planned development. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20050906/CLTU038 ) "It will be quite some time before we have a final design, but we felt it was important to give people something that would help them visualize some of the concepts we're considering," said Michael McGwier, Executive Managing Director for TCR's Southeast Division. While the conceptual design shows 38 and 39 story high-rises, the firm says it is flexible about the buildings' heights, McGwier said. "We will be constantly refining the concept to come up with the best possible use of the land for all of Atlanta," he added. The vertical buildings would block less of the neighbors' views of the park than long low buildings would, TCR contends. And while the parking deck is on the lower floors, it would not look like a parking deck from the outside. The beltline, which forms a ring around intown Atlanta, is a proposed series of interconnected greenspaces, housing choices and mixed-use developments, as well as a low impact transportation corridor. When complete, the five mile long parcel, owned by The Northeast Atlanta Beltline Group, (www.neatlantabeltline.com) is expected to have continuous trails, paths and sidewalks linking news developments and connecting adjoining neighborhoods. The corridor runs from just south of I-85 near Ansley Golf Club to DeKalb Avenue. The development is now undergoing a comprehensive zoning review. Construction would begin after the zoning process is concluded. TCR is one of Atlanta's top ten private companies, and one of the nation's top three multifamily builders. Its goal is to develop, acquire and construct multifamily communities of the highest quality, to enhance the lifestyles of its residents and create value for its investors. It strives to be the best at every aspect of the multifamily real estate industry.
