Public meeting tonight on Sandy Springs mega-project

A community meeting to discuss a mysterious developer’s plans for a massive five-tower project in Sandy Springs is scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m.

As the AJC reported Jan. 5:

The proposed project, which is likely to be many years away, would involve three high-rise residential buildings and two office towers that would surround an existing hexagon-shaped office building at 1117 Perimeter Center West near the Sandy Springs MARTA station. It’s not far from the intersection of Abernathy Road and Ga. 400.

The 13-acre property is currently zoned for buildings up to 31 stories tall, a representative for the developer said Tuesday, but it is likely the group will seek a permission to go higher.

To call the project ambitious would be an understatement, and the developer’s lack of disclosure about its identity adds a bit of intrigue to the proceedings. The development group is scheduled to have its first community meeting Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. at the property, and it will likely be a boisterous gathering given recent large rezoning issues in Sandy Springs.

Rob Forrest, a representative for the development firm 1117 Sandy Springs LLC, said the group bought the project in May. The family that controls the property has experience developing in Australia, New Zealand and other international gateway destinations.

More information, including renderings of the project, is available here.
