Applicant:  Hunter Richardson/ Emmy Montagne

SAP#:

Variation Requested: In previous reviews of this project, the committee noted concerns about the large number of materials being incorporated into the public realm, the mixture of trees and variety which did not conform to district standards.  The applicant brought samples of all materials and provided detailed plans showing the placement of those materials.

 Recommendations:

  • The committee recommends approval of the materials palette.
  • The committee recommends the bike racks be changed to a position perpendicular to their current position.
  • Sidewalk materials must be continued across driveways at the same grade and cross slope. (Sec. 16-18I.020 (1) )
  • The committee recommends the trees on either side of Buckhead Ave at the intersection with Peachtree be of consistent size and species.
  • The committee recommends all corners of speed table be treated the same with Elms along the sidewalk and Oaks at the intersection corners.
  • The committee recommends direct coordination with the Buckhead CID streetscape project to ensure coherent transitions are achieved.
  • The committee recommends the applicant incorporate and imbedded material for marking crosswalks rather than thermoplastic striping which looks too stark against the materials palette and quality.

 

Buckhead Atlanta – Parcel A

Project Scope:  Restaurant Renovation/Construction

Applicant:  Hunter Richardson/ Emmy Montagne

SAP#:

Variation Requested:  The applicant presented revised concepts for Parcel A which reflect the addition of 20,000 sf of space, including two additional levels and a rooftop terrace accommodating up to 500 people to accommodate the addition of Spanx to the development.

 Recommendation:  The committee reviewed the plans, noting that no changes are being made to the public realm already reviewed therefore recommends support of these changes.
