Cream of Buckhead real estate attorneys at 1 NPU-B zoning meeting
On hand were attorneys Carl Westmoreland and Jessica Hill of Morris Manning & Martin LLC and Doug Dillard, often referred to as the dean of real estate attorneys—all three with offices in Buckhead.
Missing was Nathan V. (Pete) Hendricks, who no doubt was hard at work at some other similar meeting. He has recently been representing the Peachtree Hills neighborhood in regards to one of the cases that was heard by the NPU-B Zoning Committee.
The attorney with the shortest evening this Tuesday night was Dillard, who simply showed up to answer any questions about his client’s appeal of a decision by the city’s administrative officer for a property at 1000 Park Avenue. No questions, an early evening on an application that was deferred until next month.
Next up on the agenda was Jennifer Hill representing Alliance Residential’s plans for redeveloping the present site where Henri’s Bakery has been for decades, at 3190 Cains Hill Place in the West Village, and including the corner property on Paces Ferry Place.
Alliance Residential plans a mixed-use development for the site, which would include approximately 15,000 square feet of retail space on the ground
floor, approximately 275 residential rental apartments and a parking deck for both. The total height of the building would be 150 feet.
Alliance Residential was seeking to amend conditions related to the current zoning of SPI-9 (special public interest district) SA3 to adjust the FAR of 1.5 and 8.2 to a blended FAR of 5.587 and to delete the conditions currently applied to 3191 and 3193 Paces Ferry Place.
Following a rapid presentation of the plans and reasons for the amended conditions by Hill and a couple of questions by the committee, the application was unanimously approved by the Zoning Committee, conditioned on the site plan presented.
For Hill, it also was a rather quick and easy evening before the Zoning Committee, requiring only about 15 minutes for her presentation and answering questions before leaving.
As for Hill’s colleague, Westmoreland, well, that is a different story. Check it out on this site.
