[ARCHIVED] South City Partners Closes on Multi-Use Development In Avondale Estates

The City of Avondale Estates is pleased to announce award-winning developer, South City Partners, has closed on the 3.17 acre parcel on the north side of East College Avenue between Hillyer Street and Sams Crossing allowing them to begin construction on their multi-use development. The development will feature a vertical mixed use project with approximately 8,000 square feet of podium retail/restaurant space on the ground floor, approximately 197 residential units in four stories above, including a gateway park, which will preserve the mature trees, a rear parking deck with additional on-street parking and generous sidewalks and street trees to enhance the pedestrian experience.

Mayor Jonathan Elmore announced, “On behalf of the City of Avondale Estates, the Board of Mayor and Commissioners is happy to announce that today South City Partners closed on their property acquisition at Sam’s Crossing and will soon break ground on construction. Their mixed-use project will be handsome and welcoming edifice at our western gateway and an inspiring catalyst for our entire central business district. As Mayor, I am incredibly proud of the collaborative effort of our Downtown Development Authority, our City Manager and staff, and the Board in working with South City Partners to arrive at this point. We all look forward to seeing this important project being built and a future ribbon-cutting. The South City Partners, I would like to say “great job” and welcome to our community!”


Downtown Development Authority Chair Matt Delicata stated, “This development is a great addition to the downtown district, and we are honored to have worked with the City of Avondale Estates and South City Partners to help bring this project to fruition. We know it will be a huge success and are excited to watch it serve as a catalyst for future development.” 


The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) awarded South City Partners two out of three project specific 2015 Development of Excellence Awards. The first is for Revival on Main in Kennesaw for the Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) Achievement Award and the second features Inman Quarters in Atlanta for Exceptional Merit for Content-Sensitive Urban Infill Development. Read more about these awards on the ARC website. ARC’s Development of Excellence awards recognizes projects that exemplify cutting-edge, livable design that enhances the surrounding community.

The City of Avondale Estates strives to promote and implement high-quality redevelopment in the Central Business District and Citywide. The Western Gateway area from Maple Street to Sams Crossing was annexed into the City to extend this effort to the logical City limits. The 2014 Downtown Master Plan community planning activities and the final Downtown Master Plan document approved by the Board of Mayor and Commissioners included plans for the redevelopment and enhancement of the entrance to the City.
