A plan to revitalize a blighted 14-acre Doraville shopping center with new apartments and workforce housing will get a boost from almost $19 million in property tax abatements. Atlanta developer Kaufman Capital Partners won approval for the tax breaks, which will offset costs to redevelop the 35-year-old shopping plaza at Tilly Mill Road and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.
AJC SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT – THIS WEEK’S TOPIC: NORTHSIDE DEVELOPMENT
The words used to describe this piece of land have not been kind: A “sea of asphalt.” “Desolate.” “A black hole.” It’s a bleak shopping center just outside the Perimeter in Doraville, but developers are hoping to change that. A largescale redevelopment could give new life to the property through a mix of retail and more than 300 apartments. On the surface, it seems like a standard redevelopment project targeting another decades-old shopping center.
