A development team including former Atlanta Brave Mark Teixeira unveiled designs on Wednesday for the first phase of a 70-acre mixed-use project near the future park at the Bellwood Quarry.
The developer said the Quarry Yards will include 850 residences, a 300-room hotel, retail, restaurants and more than a half-million square feet of high-end office space in its first phase. The development will rise near the future Westside Park and the Bankhead MARTA station.
The development team includes Jimmy Barry and Joel Bowman of Urban Creek Partners and apartment giant Pollack Shores Real Estate Group, which will lead residential development. Construction is expected to start this year on a first phase.
Teixeira and his partners have been assembling land in the area for a number of years and are founders of Emerald Corridor Foundation, a group behind plans to clean up Proctor Creek and raise money with partners for the Proctor Creek Greenway.
