Downtown Redevelopment

Recommended Posts

Dannenberg building-a group of developers have plans to turn the building into 50 lofts and add a fourth floor of luxury condos.

has anyone heard anything about this project.the group is made up of some of the capicorn center investors.I wonder if thet will do both or just the larger capicorn development?

Yes I read that somewhere on Macon.com about the plans for 50 units in the old Dannenberg Building, by Gene Dunwody Sr. and Jr., Dr. Ron Conners, he said something about they were drawing the plans right now, and he was pushing them to start building because the demand is there. i'm exciting to here about these developments downtown....I wish some developers would come in a propose and build some high rise (15-25 levels)developments DT. I spoke with Mike Ford the Director of Newtown Macon, about the rumors of height restrictions on high rise developments and he said that it would be no problem to get P&Z to approve 15-25 levels buildings for DT.....

the height restriction is that anything over 35ft. in height has to get a special zoning permit,but it doesn't put a limit on how tall a building can be.

No he just answered my questions concerning height restricts in DT, but i'm sure if all the residential growth continues, I'm sure it want be long before we see some high rises being developed in DT Macon.

Heavy equipment began tearing down Macon's old Transit Authority building Wednesday morning on Riverside Drive in downtown Macon. The city hopes the property will be developed into upscale apartments proposed by a developer.

That sounds exciting. Slowly but surely it seems like Macon is investing in it's downtown. Do you have any information on the lofts? News articles or such? I am curious to know the price ranges of these lofts and general proximity to services for the residents. Is there a downtown grocery store? Even in this economy, there are still residential units that are selling. There is quite possibly 57 people in the greater Macon area who can purchase an intown unit. To make them more attractive though the pricing has to be right.

Anyway, yay for Macon.

I don't have any articles on hand at the time.Most of the lofts are rental units they range from $400-1500 month.

There are a few you can buy,they range in price from about $100,000 for a soft loft shell to $400,000 for a upscale condo.

As for a downtown grocery store there is not one in downtown,there is a Kroger across the river from downtown,there is

also a Kroger in midtown.Mercer University is working on bringing an organic grocery store to its Mercer Village development.

Alot of the developments are being done by locals who are architects,painting contractors,bankers ect.only a couple are being

done by development companies.hope I have given you the info you were looking for.
