Brookhaven, GA, May 3, 2016 – by Trey Benton – Silver Properties is looking to rezone and consolidate three parcels along Buford Hwy. to construct the ‘Shoppes at Brookhaven’, a 13,500 sq. ft. retail strip center. Currently, the three parcels contain an old McDonald’s that moved just up the road, a parking lot with old outdoor seating fixtures and an auto service/sales center.
The developer envisions a “one stop” center where patrons can dine, pick up quick items and shop within the center. The plans show the developer would create seven units, the largest two being a sit-down restaurant and a convenience/food store (4,000 sq. ft. each), four 1,000 sq. ft. retail spaces and one 1,500 sq. ft. retail space.
The site is defined in the City of Brookhaven’s Comprehensive plan as a Commercial Redevelopment Zone within the Buford Hwy. corridor.
The applicant is requesting to rezone the three parcels from NS (Neighborhood Shopping) to C-1 Commercial and a Special Land Use Permit to sell alcohol.
The requests are set to be in front of the Planning Commission June 1st.
