Atlanta-based Cocke Finkelstein, Inc., in a joint venture with two other firms, announced earlier this week their plans for a large vacant parcel in Chamblee. The firms plan to build "The Olmstead Chamblee," which will include 283 apartments and 11,000 square feet of retail space, including space for two restaurants. The project will reportedly include four separate buildings (three, four and five stories) around a central village with both for rent apartments and townhouses. The project is at the corner of Peachtree Boulevard and Chamblee Tucker Road, on the site of the former, but long ago demolished, International Farmers Market. One of the most notable design elements of the project will be the iconic “Chamblee” sign atop one of the structures on Peachtree Boulevard. A groundbreaking is scheduled for 11:30AM today with completion planned for "Spring 2016."
