Excerpted from Curbed Atlanta story.
A significant piece of historic Sweet Auburn’s aging retail corridor is poised for an update that promises a mix of new retail and residential offerings—and possibly new ridership for the Atlanta Streetcar.
According to officials with New York-based developer Hart-Lyman, the piece of Auburn Avenue nestled between Hilliard and Jackson streets is expected to be redeveloped in a way that maintains some of the neighborhood’s historic character
Dubbed “The Front Porch at Auburn Avenue,” the proposal would comprise 38,000 square feet of retail space, 13,000 square feet of apartments, and 18,600 square feet of for-sale residential offerings.
Hart-Lyman and Franklin Street are managing the leasing efforts for the retail component, and Syntony Design and Cole Hil are heading up architecture work.
