Ray is exactly right. If you have an opportunity, you should call the Atlanta Regional Commission. In a study called “Vision 2020”, that was published a few years ago, they stress that infill development will become a crucial part of Atlanta’s development over the next 20 years. If not, people will be living in Tennessee and commuting to Buckhead. Call the ARC; they’ll mail you the report free.
Perhaps you should attempt to get the property rezoned. If the City Council (I’m assuming the property is in the City of Atlanta) could be convinced that your re-development would have a positive impact on the surrounding community, then you may be able to get very favorable zoning. However, this process could be far more trouble than it’s worth.
I’m curious, where is this parcel, specifically?
