GID Development—Woody Galloway
High Street, which is a 42-acre development on the west side of Perimeter Mall, will be developed in phases—a 15-year plan. Thirty-six acres are in DeKalb County and 6 acres are in Sandy Springs. This is a mixed used project—office, residential, hotel, and retail uses—500 residential units and 200 condos. They will build from back to front. Phase 1 is middle of zoning at this time and this phase will include existing buildings, a park, and large surface parking lots will be removed. The one-acre park will have activity on all 4 sides. High Street will have parallel parking, which will create a walkable environment for pedestrians. Discussion followed on construction time, green space, entrances, etc. GID asked that DHA have a small group committee to work with them to develop this property. Gordon will appoint committee.

Dunwoody Village Court Update—Warren Jolly
This property is at the corner of Dunwoody Village Parkway and Mt. Vernon—8.2 acres. This property now has 4 office buildings. Building 1536 will be converted to office condos. If all goes well with this, other buildings will be converted to office condos. Discussion followed on area in back of this complex, sidewalks, and construction time.

Novare SLUP
Motion was made and seconded to support the application of the Novare Group for development of the southwest corner of Hammond and Perimeter Center Parkway as presented in the last meeting. Motion passed.
