Loft development with street-level retail will be within walking distance of MARTA station
The Gordon, the latest transit-oriented development (TOD) from Windsor Stevens, received approval from the Chamblee City Council on Tuesday, August 20, 2019.
Windsor Stevens Managing Partner Rod Mullice said the project at 3543 and 3553 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, Chamblee, will break ground this fall. Completion of the lofts with 7,500 square feet of retail space at street level and a 2,000-square-foot rooftop amenity is slated for the fourth quarter of 2020.
Just a quarter-mile from the Chamblee MARTA Station, connected by the planned Rail Trail extension, The Gordon is the latest property in Windsor Stevens’ growing TOD portfolio.
“The Gordon continues our focus on walkability, high-tech amenities and attractive, efficient modern design, the combination of characteristics we call The Connected Lifestyle,” Mullice said. “Our design team, Niles Bolton Associates, Ymani Tannis with WB Interiors, and Eberly and Associates, truly understands the needs and tastes of today’s professionals. The Gordon will reflect their preferences in coordination with the architectural requirements of the Chamblee Master Plan.”
The Gordon will reflect the goals and design principles laid out in Chamblee’s recently established Downtown Chamblee Town Center Plan, created by the City of Chamblee, the Downtown Development Authority and Bob Voyles of Seven Oaks Company. Its convenient Downtown Chamblee location will offer fast, easy access to numerous Metro Atlanta job centers including Century Center, Sandy Springs, and the Perimeter CIDs as well as Buckhead, Midtown and Downtown via MARTA.
Chamblee Mayor Eric Clarkson said this development reflects the city’s decades of work to sustain its charm and economic vitality.
“Two decades of focused community collaboration are paying off in the evolution of a walkable town center with easy access to jobs, shopping and leisure options. In particular, we have devoted a lot of attention to the area within a mile of the Chamblee MARTA rail station,” Clarkson said. “The Gordon will provide owner-occupied, multi-family, mixed-use development in our municipal core. Windsor Stevens’ success with attractive, efficient, high-tech properties close to transit in other Metro Atlanta cities makes them a welcome addition to ours.”
Approval of The Gordon expands the Windsor Stevens portfolio of successful, transit-oriented projects. ThePad on Harvard, an apartment community just 500 feet from the College Park MARTA Station, is 96% occupied after breaking ground as College Park’s first new multifamily development in more than 40 years. Temple Square, also an easy walk from the College Park MARTA Station and Woodward Academy, offers attractive, high-tech townhouses in Historic College Park.
These unique properties showcase Windsor Stevens’ commitment to top quality design and construction, community engagement, and convenience for working professionals. Windsor Stevens summarizes this vision as The Connected Lifestyle.
“We know today’s professionals want easy access to work and leisure activities, attractive living spaces that facilitate stress-free maintenance, security and gracious daily living, and encourage sociability with an inviting shared environment,” Mullice said. “We are dedicated to creating these opportunities at reasonable prices.”
