Representatives for the massive mixed-use High Street development planned in Dunwoody will make a presentation of their plans at the Dunwoody Homeowners Association meeting on Sunday, Sept. 11.

Jeff Lowenberg, Vice President of Development of the GID Development Group, developers of the project, will be on hand for the presentation along with attorneys from The Galloway Group. The meeting is open to the public and begins at 7:30 p.m. in room 4 at the DeKalb Cultural Arts Center, 5339 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road.

Boston-based GID has submitted a pre-land disturbance permit application package that outlines the location of utilities that is currently under review by the city and DeKalb County, according to Andrew Russell, planning coordinator for Dunwoody.

In 2007, GID applied for and received from DeKalb County a special land use permit, variances and rezoning of the High Street property located at Perimeter Center Parkway and Hammond Drive adjacent to the Dunwoody MARTA station.

Plans for the project, according to documents filed with the city, include 400,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and 3,000 residential units. The project also includes 400,000 square feet of new office space in addition to the 235,000 square feet of office space currently on the site that will remain.

The development is divided into 10 blocks and fronting Perimeter Center Parkway. There are five 30-story residential towers planned, with one also including retail on the ground floor. Other residential and retail buildings range from 10 stories to 5 stories.

A 21-story office tower is planned for the corner of Hammond Drive and Perimeter Center Parkway and accessible via both roads. A 22-story hotel is planned to be off Hammond Drive. The name of the project comes from the new roads to be built in the middle of the project – a High Street and also East High Street and West High Street.

A 2015 site plan now includes townhomes along Perimeter Center Parkway. The townhomes will be either for rent or for sale.

A brochure for the project touts the project as the “largest new public space in Atlanta.” The property includes more than 40 acres with some 24 acres to be developed.

“There’s change coming to Atlanta, with a new cosmopolitan city center for Dunwoody that brings together in one place everything that makes living in a city great,” states the High Street brochure. “A new mixed-use destination built around the largest new public space in Atlanta that brings retail, leisure, residential and office uses together with an ongoing program of public events in a walkable, transit-oriented, neighborhood hub.”

Earlier this year, GID released new renderings for the project.
