“Selig Enterprises, Inc. is pleased to announce that after an almost two year legal delay over the redevelopment of Suburban Plaza, all litigation between Good Growth Dekalb (GGD) and Dekalb County has been resolved and the redevelopment can resume. During lengthy discussions with GGD, Selig was able to address most of GGD’s concerns in a manner that will only improve our planned redevelopment of Suburban Plaza, including agreeing to the installation of additional sidewalks along Medlock Road, as well other improvements such as landscaping and fence repair next to the neighborhood of homes located directly to the rear of the shopping center.
Selig has always worked diligently with neighborhood representatives during its construction projects and this case has been no different. Selig would like to recognize and thank the representatives from the Medlock Area Neighborhood Assoc., Clairmont Heights, Medlock Place, Springdale Heights and Decatur Heights, Sycamore Ridge, Sycamore Station, Glendale Estates, and the Christian Towers for providing valuable input over the past three years and helping Selig to transform the area with quality development. Many details of the project have been the result of years of collaboration with these neighborhoods and have resulted in numerous features of the redevelopment, such as: sidewalks, bike paths, and /or multi-use paths around all street frontages, interior pedestrian connectivity, several pocket parks, increased landscaping, the addition of almost an acre and a half of green space, architectural design elements, and traffic calming measures on surrounding streets.
Selig also appreciates GGD’s efforts to improve its community. The additional items Selig agreed to do will further enhance the surrounding area. Selig hopes to continue to work collaboratively with representatives from all surrounding neighborhoods and Dekalb County to continue to enhance the redevelopment of Suburban Plaza.
In addition to the Walmart, Selig is excited about the continued interest in the project by potential tenants – including LA Fitness (which will include a daycare facility), HomeGoods, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, and others to be announced at a later date.
The proposed redevelopment will significantly transform the appearance of the center and has already shown to be a catalyst for other development projects in the area. Selig expects to begin construction immediately and looks forward to completion of the project that will serve the community.”
Decaturish.com has posted Good Growth DeKalb’s press release.
Selig and Walmart have now received all needed permits (land disturbance, demolition, and building) for Suburban Plaza’s redevelopment. Demolition and construction are slated to begin in early 2013.
The cross-neighborhoods committee continues to meet regularly with the Selig folks. We do not have a plans update scheduled for December. For all official Suburban Plaza information, visit MANA’s site: http://www.medlockpark.org/search/label/Suburban%20Plaza
