A 21-unit gated residential project is proposed to replace a half-dozen houses on Glenridge Drive in Sandy Springs. A preliminary community meeting is slated for July 11.
The project, proposed by Betancourt Communities, covers 6045 to 6105 Glenridge, between Glenairy Drive and the Apostles Church along Hammond Drive. A project filing appears to show a townhome layout, but does not say whether the units would be rentals or ownership. The company did not have immediate comment.
The neighborhood recently opposed a plan to turn the nearby church into senior rental housing, causing the developer to withdraw. During that controversy, several Glenridge residents said they had buyout offers from developers and worried about a “domino effect” on the street. One alternative to the senior home suggested by some residents and city Planning Commission members as more suitable was townhomes.
The Betancourt project requires rezoning for higher-density residential use. The community meeting will be held July 11, 6 p.m., at Mount Vernon Presbyterian Church, 471 Mount Vernon Highway NE.
