North Decatur/Scott Boulevard development to add third phase

Fuqua Development’s mixed-use project at North Decatur Road and Scott Boulevard is adding a third phase to be built on about 10 acres of the long-abandoned Ford dealership off Scott Boulevard.

The plan is still conceptual, but attorney Dennis Webb, who represents Fuqua, will file a land-use plan on Jan. 7, with a community meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Jan. 6 at the North Decatur United Methodist Church, 1523 Church St., Decatur.

The development site, part of which was formerly occupied by Scott Boulevard Baptist Church, is outside Decatur limits, but earlier this year was on the city’s annexation plan before getting removed by legislators in the general assembly’s final days.

When the first two phases are complete, the project will include 700 apartments and 20 ground-floor retailers, including a Sprouts Farmers Market and assorted restaurants and offices.

The first phase is on 4 acres of the old church site, while the second phase encompasses 16 acres. Webb said the third phase will continue with a mix of restaurants/retail/apartments, possibly including senior affordable housing, but he wouldn’t have additional details until January.
