New renderings for Dunwoody mini-city High Street revealed

A Boston developer planning a mini-city in Dunwoody near Perimeter Mall has new design concepts for the project, which was put on hold by the Great Recession.

GID Urban Development showed new renderings of the High Street project at the International Council of Shopping Centers convention this week in Las Vegas, a person with knowledge of the situation said. The property, just west of Perimeter Mall, has long been slated for an ambitious development of retail, thousands of mid- to high-rise residences and offices.

The new renderings are live on the project's website, which you can see here.

In 2007, GID proposed a blend of 3,000 mid- and high-rise residences, hotels, office towers and street front retail. The company said then that it planned to start construction in 2009, but the project was delayed.

A GID executive contacted Thursday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution directed comment to the director of the High Street project, who did not immediately return a message.

GID has long been expected to bring building plans forward for site along Perimeter Center Parkway and Hammond Drive. But a time frame isn’t known.

The new renderings come days after an Atlanta area development group shelved plans for Crown Towers, a four-tower project at the former Gold Kist headquarters site in Dunwoody, and as developer Transwestern started its pitch for a new speculative office tower on a Perimeter Mall out-parcel.

The AJC leases a building for its main operations that is on the High Street site.
