Two Atlanta-based companies are behind the project: Carson Developments Inc. and PulteGroup. Carson Developments, Inc. could not be reached for comment, and a spokesperson for PluteGroup told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that it was too early in the process to comment on the development.

According to the permit application, the cost for construction is $2 million. The homes will be built close to the southwestern corner of Hollywood Road and Burtz Street. Along those roads will be 10, three-story buildings with tree-lined streetscapes, the plans show. Every home will have its own garage with a private driveway. Primary vehicle access will be available on Burtz Street.

What Now Atlanta also obtained Fulton County property records showing that in June 2020, Carson Developments paid $1.8 million for multiple parcels that form the project site.
