Was living off Arcadia for a few years, those side streets are gonna take a beating if additional parking doesn’t open up when development hits.

I wish the AT&T property could be magically reappear as Parking Garage, but otherwise I'm not sure where additional parking is supposed to come from.

The site is near Atlantic Boulevard and Hendricks Avenue, where one corner has been designed for a Publix Super Markets Inc.-anchored retail center. Ware said the Publix, which he expects will soon be built, will be another amenity.

A budget of $30,000,000 for 145 apartments is around $205,000 per unit.  That's almost twice what is being spent to develop the 147 unit Home Street (aka 'SoBa') apartments by Catalyst Development Partners.  Wonder how the rents will compare.....

That being said I think it is a winner for the merchants in the area.

"Asked if the site could accommodate retail or services development, Ware said Harbert was focused on apartments “at this time.”
This is so close to the San Marco square, wouldn't retail make more money than apartments at street level?

Yep, that’s bad juju right there.

No. This plan is spot on but it's going to be expensive. Like the 1 bedroom across from Starbux and Publix in Riverside. Bell Riverside . Those 1 bedrooms bring $1400 and up.....

Without seeing the site plan, I assume they are going to want to remove Thacker.  Not a huge fan of increasing block sizes, but it's already been done with the East San Marco site.

I was wondering if bringing retail into the mix would change parking requirements for what is already a tricky footprint.    What you say strikes me as the driving reason behind it.   

Any one know how the city may tweaks the streets in the area with this development?

FYI, There are some updates in the latest resident newspaper. It sounds great to me and Doug Skiles firm will be involved which makes me very happy. Bring it on.

Awesome! That's the best news I've heard all day.

I'd like retail on Hendricks but that's not half bad. If they really include that garage, there won't even be additional parking pressure. Not that some folks won't still blame it, of course.

That's good news.  My only complaint is that I would like the building to come up to Hendricks.

I wonder if the church spaces will be available for public use at night?
