About the Project 

StreetLights Residential presented its project that includes 299 market-rate residential units and over 4,000 square feet of retail uses. Seven levels of 568 parking spaces would be provided, including 150 spaces allocated for the adjacent St. Mark United Methodist Church. 

DRC Response

The DRC recommendations included:

  1. moving the retail space to the corner of 5th and Juniper to take advantage of pedestrian activity along 5th Street.
  2. strengthening the exterior design features by working with Atlanta City Design Studio due to the building’s prominent scale and its location adjacent to the historic church.

Upon addressing the comments and collaborating with the Design Studio the applicant team is expected to return to the DRC.
