Chamblee, GA, June 3, 2016 – by Trey Benton – Chamblee’s Architectural Review Board will meet Tuesday, June 7th, to review an application filed by Bryan Musolf of Inline Communities to build 39 fee simple townhomes on 4 parcels located at 1965, 1973, 1981, and 1989 Dering Circle. The development has been named Ashford Place.
“The proposed use of this property will be residential, single family townhomes,” says Musolf. “It is a great transitional property that will enhance the community from its current use as a rental property.”
Ashford Place is described as an upscale for-sale townhome community with an anticipated price point in the high $300’s. All units will have a two-car garage and driveways with a mix of floor plans for buyers to choose from. There will be one main common area in the community that includes a sidewalk, gazebo and a formal lawn – designed to be a community gathering space.
If successful, Inline will invest approximately $7.5 million to develop the 3.689 acre tract at a density of 10.6 units per acre in seven buildings, and each unit will be approximately 2,336 sq. ft.
According to City documents, the estimated traffic impact will be 284 trips per day – 142 Daily trips in and 142 daily trips out of Ashford Place.
The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) says in Zoning Review comments, the project, if approved, is expected to add 5 students to DCSD schools: 2 at Montclair ES, 1 at Sequoyah MS and 1 at Cross Keys HS. One additional student will attend another DCSD school, says the school system.
City Staff has recommended approval, with 18 conditions. More details about the development can be found below and the full application packet with Staff Report can be found here.
