The Brookhaven Planning Commission on Dec. 3 recommended that City Council on Dec. 16 defer for 60 days a request from JLB Realty to rezone property at 3920, 3930 and 3926 Peachtree Road for a mixed-use development consisting of 272 multifamily units and 17,695 square feet of shops.

The rezoning for the property, which is the former site of Hastings Nursery, has drawn the opposition of some nearby Historic Brookhaven residents who are concerned with the proposed height and density of the project.

Carl Westmoreland, lawyer for JLB, said the company is requesting the deferral for the opportunity to continue working with the neighbors.
