Old rendering – Callaway Site
The Cousins Calloway development is back before the City Commission tonight (agenda item here), after the city sent the developer back to the drawing board last September for not including enough retail or office space in its plan.
A note from Asst. City Manager Lyn Menne summarized the changes thusly…
Reduces the number of residential units overall by 40 units (from 369 to 329).
Adds 30,000 sf of upper floor office space to the building in the northeast corner of the site.
Removes a round entry lobby on the southwest side of the new office building and a pedestrian bridge originally designed to connect upper floor residential uses.
Provides for a total of 721 parking spaces (an increase of 19 parking spaces to accommodate the increased office space).
Removes the black box theater space and replaces it with three additional live work units to create three more small office options for a total of eight live work units.
Ms. Menne states that the Decatur Downtown Development Authority Board supports the revised site plan.
