Plans for development near Coolray Field on hold
LAWRENCEVILLE - Plans for development surrounding Coolray Field are on hold while developers and local residents work out an agreement on what to do with the property.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Developer Brand Morgan originally proposed building 351,000 square feet of commercial space and 610 upscale apartments on the site.
But revised plans now call for roughly half the original amount of commercial space, and the number of apartments around the stadium would nearly triple.
Local residents and some planning commissioners objected to those plans, saying they were a significant change from the commercial district originally proposed and that additional apartments would detract from their neighborhood.
Developers now have until June 5 to reach an agreement on the matter.
