Published By Continental Development Corp., Atlanta
$18 Million SW Complex
Apartments In A Garden Setting Will Be The Feature Of The Proposed $18 Million Continental Colony Complex
Civic Leaders Hail Benefits To Area Residents
Continental Development Corpor ation
h as announced it will invest a minimum
of $18 million in the future development
of Southwest Atlanta with the construction of a luxury apartment complex immediately south of Greenbriar Shopping Center.
The anno uncement was hailed by
Southwest Atlanta businessmen, civic
and professional clubs, public officials
and residents as a tremendous asset for
the area.
The directors of the West End Business Men's Association, in a reso lution
adopted Dec. 30, 1966, said the establis hment of the lux ury apartments
"would be beneficial to the economy and
well-being of th is area."
Continental Development Corporation
President Fred J . Schwaemmle, Jr., said
the prestigious complex will have an
elaborate $120,000 clubhouse facilityscheduled to have indoor and outdoor
swimming pools, tennis courts and golf
putting greens - which will be made
available to r esidential owners in the
adjoining Continental Colony Residentia l subdivision.
Mr. Schwaemmle a lso reported the
new development will be separated by a
landscaped area at least 150 feet wide
from the adj acent residential area.
The overall design of the screening
and buffer zone will be la id out according to a design by award-winning la ndscape-architect Willard C. Byrd.
"The buffer zone w ill be in a parklike setting," Mr. Byrd said, "and it
will be designed not only to screen but
to look attractive." The plantings will
include grass, hed ges . shrubs and such
flowering trees as magnolias and dogwood.
Creation of the apartment complex
w ill also serve as a buffer zone between
the residential subdivisi-on and the commercial property planned at Greenbriar, commented Terry B. Knight, who
is one of the 50 appraisers in Georgia
designated a MAI (a Member of American Ins titute of Real Esta t e Appraisers).
" In f act," Mr. Knight said, "it is my
opinion as an appraiser t hat this proposed (apartment) development will provide that most desirable buffer between
the single-family residential subdivision
and the area zoned commercial which
will be developed in the near future
with variou s types of improvements."
Traffic engineers sard the development
of the apartment complex a lso w ill r elieve the heavy fl ow of vehicles on the
residentia l streets of Continential Colony created by peopJ.e driving to Greenbriar from the south .
An extension of Mt. Gilead Road is
proposed to run through the apartment
complex and, linking the four-lane Hogan-Stone Road connector and the proposed four - lane North Camp Creek
Parkway, remove mu ch of the through
traffic which now uses The Fontainbleau

most desirable buffer " between the existing residentia l area and the co mmercia l buildings sc hed uled to be er ected on

That's the report of Terry B. Knight,

'M r. West End' Says
SW Growth Depends
On Colony Complex
Edgar E . Schuk r aft, widely known as
"Mr. W es t E-n d, " says the creation of
th e $18 million Continental Colony
ap a rtm ent co mplex is "a r ea l move in
th e r ight direct ion for t his section ."
" This a r ea is on th e threshold of a
g r eat forward m ovement," commented
Mr . Schukraft, form er pres ident of the
W es t End Business Men 's A ssocia tion,
"and this p1,oject is of the utmost impor t a nce to Southwes t Atlanta."
T oo lo ng, Mr. Schukraft said, Southwest Atlan t a h as failed to partici-p ate
to its fu ll p otentia l in the dyn a mic
growth of Met ropo lit a n AtJ.a nt a .
"But n ow this w h ole section is r eady

be a real fac t or in th e futur e g r owth of

"Now we have th e opportun ity to step
out," he decla r ed, "and we should do it
without delay."
�Unusual Features Of Clubhouse In Proposed New Continental Colony Complex To Include Indoor Swimming Pool
Club Facilities Open To Subdivision Residents
Residents of the Continental Colony
Sub-division will be welcome to use the
variety of recreational facilities-in cluding a private clubhouse-planned for
Continental Development Corporation's
$18-million luxury apartment complex.
Fred Schwaemmle, Jr., president of
Continental Development, said the opportunity to enjoy the facilities will be
offered ".on a reasonable basis, subject
to the rules and reg ulations established
by the corporation."
Mr. Schwaemmle said the clubhouse
will include lounges, formal dining and
meeting rooms, billiard rooms, exercise
and sauna facilities, plus appropriate
swimming pools. There a lso will be golf
putting and chipping greens, tennis and
shuffleboard courts.
"These proposed facilities will be a
deciding factor in a ttracting quality
people to the area, and an extension of

MAI Appraiser Sees No Ill Effects
Terry B. Knight, a member of the
American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers, said he does not feel nearby
single fam ily homes will be affect ed
adversely by the $18 - million luxury
apartment development.
"In fact, it is my opinion as an appraiser that this proposed development
(with the 150-foot buffer zone) will
provide the most desirable buffer between the sing le fami ly r esidential subdivision and the area zone commercial
which will be developed in the near

and Hogan Road in the residential subdivision.
Mr. Schwaemmle said the proposed
apartments, where rents will begin at
$150 a month for single bedr.oom units ,
are designed to appeal to executive-type
r esidents.
Mos t of the apartments will have
wood-burning firep laces, with rich wood
paneling a nd attractive wa ll cove-r ings
among their many luxurious appointments. All are desig ned for indoor-outdoor living with enclosed patios and
balconies.
Mr. Schwaemmle said the new comp lex , designed with a very low density

of units per acre by architects Danielson and Paine, will not create an overcrowded condition at Continental Colony
School.
"Surveys of apartment complexes of
similar character and compldion of the
one we propose readily indicate a n extremely small percentage of school-age
children," Mr. Schwaemmle reported.
The r ecreation facilities to be made
available to Continental Colony subdivision residents will include the private clubhouse- which will have lounges,

future with various types of improvements," said Mr. Knight. "It also is a
buffer fr.om the side view of the Greenbriar Shopping Oenter."
Mr. Knight, who made an on-site inspection November 21 for the purpose
of determining the feasibility of the
proposed development, said:
" I have been in the mortgage loan
business in Atlanta for 12 years and
have made several loans in the Continental Colony Subdivision which adjoins
the subject property. I am also an
appraiser holding the MAI designation
(a Member of American ln-stitute of
Real Estate Appraisers) allld have made
appmisals on houses adjoining the subj ect prop,erty.
"Based on my personal inspection of
this property and seeing the proposed
plot plan showing a 150-foot buffer zone
between the apartment buildings and the
homes on Black Forest Trail (homes
nearest to the apartment) and knowing
the type apartments tha t are proposed
on this site, I do not feel the single
fa mily homes will be affected adversely."
In review, Mr. Knight said it is his
opinion that "an attractive apartment
project on this site would be a proper
improvement and would not adversely

The e v ening wa s fr ee for dinne r a nd what eve r we want e d to d o .
Tues day, Octo b e r 24 :
The m o r n ing s ess i on was l e d b y Pr ofesso r Jul es Chame t sky , A ss oci ate
Profe sso r o f E ngli s h at the U n i ve r s ity of M a ss a chus e tts.

It s urprised me t hat a man i n a r e l a ti ve l y s mall coll e g e w o uld have such a
k no w l edg e and g rasp of t h e situa ti on i n cities.
To me, h e put his finger on th e situ a ti on , a nd by a s e ri es of metaphors
a nd e x ampl e s brought the search for p o w er by d i ffe rent groups (air pow er,
�,1
Page T w o
police powe r, black power, and student power) and the r e sultant frustration
leading to th e use of drugs to give an illusion of power.
This, to me,
e x pressed the keynote of the entire confer en c e : frustration.
The afte r no on session was to b e led by Congr essman Curtis of Missouri,
but h e was called back to The Capitol b e for e h e could get starte d. But what
h e did say confirmed the evi dence of frustration: more strike s, higher
interest rates, higher wages, and inflation. The minimum wage w ill i n crease
une mployment.
A gain, the evening was fr ee for our own desires .
Wednesday, Octobe r 25:
The morning session was l ed by H e rb e rt Strine r of th e Upjohn Institute
for Employment R esearch.
This was one of the b e st talks we had, and h e started out by saying that
eve rybody was an Economist, and there were two kinds: {l) The simpl e .
one to whom all things ar e s i mpl e to th e simple, and (2) nothing is sim pl e
a nd economic s makes simple things diffi c ult.
H e menti oned the nat ional d ebt, an d sai d that as l ong as the g r oss national
product e x c ee ded the debt th e re was nothing to w orry about. A th eo ry I
cannot go along with complete ly.
I n hi s discussion of j ob opportunities h e made a good poin t i n tha t employe r s
ar e di scour aging workers by i nsis ting on compl e t e i nves ti gation b efore
employment. If men in nee d of a j ob r epo rt and find that they cannot be
put to w ork until th e y and their r e cords have b een examined, th ey will
give up and stay on r e lief.
The afte rnoon sess i on was on the politi cal situation and the possibilities
of the 1968 ele ctions.
The evening session was a briefing on our day in the fi e l d the n ext day. I
dr ew t he t rip to Mont gome ry County, Maryl and , where they h ave just passe d
an ope n housing ordinan ce and have q ualifie d for u rban renewal.
This trip was most inte r es tin g b e caus e of our inte r es t in zoning and housin g.
Appar ently the people did not worry a bout the ope n housin g b ecause of the
high prices of homes ( $30 - $40, 000).
�Page Three
Dinner was at the Anthony House, with debri e fing s e ssion later.
Friday, Octob e r 27:
This session was given over to reports and discussion of what we had seen
and learned on the fi e ld trips. The problems in Washington are not different
from Atlanta, but I b e lieve we are handling them better. A school problem,
involving a new supe rintendent brought forth a meeting similar to the one
in Atlanta the we e k b e fore. Howev e r, this one was carried to the courts.
The aft e rnoon was free time so I went to see and talk w ith the H ealth D e partment . about how th e y were handling the Alcoholics. I was very much dis appointed in the little time given me, but did find out that they have set up
d etoxification centers in all precinct police stations, with nurses in attendance.
Thi s is followed up with examinations and com1nitt1nl:!nt to a hospital if
nec essary .
Dinner was at the Carlton, followed by a discussion on crime and the courts
by Mr. Samue l Dash from the Georgetown University Law Center.
Saturd ay , October 28:
Thi s was a summary of what we had gone ov e r during the week; first a general
summary by th e staff and the n a discussion l ed by a couple of teams picket
from the group. I think a great deal of th e week 's discussion was fla v or e d
and influen ced by the march on The Pentagon, w hich occurred th e day before
we got th e re.
The evening s e ssion was at the Washington Gallery of Mod e rn Arts. This
was the only session I could not tak e and left aft e r about an hour. Howeve r,
they did show some movies of the march on The P entagon. If it w as to
show prowess , it wa s a flop. I was certainly proud of th e Ar rny in the way
they h an dl e d th e situation - just plain,firm discipline.
Sunday, Octob e r 29:
The morning was fr ee and several of us went to church, oth e rs found other
attractions .
The afternoon was a trip to Columbia, th e new city b e t ween Washington and
Baltimore. This was most inte r es ting t o see a city planned for 100 , 000 from
�Page Four
the ground up. A central core of business surrounde d by 6 or 8 11 villages
of homes with shopping and recreation for each. A pavillion type theatre has
been provided and contracts signed for top grade performances. The streets
and walkways are so arranged that childr en can go to and fro1n school without
crossi:p.g a street. Mini-bus es handle traffic to and from the main shopping
area. Several indus tries hav e located in the city.
Monday, Octob er 30:
The morning session was on government and covered everything from municipal
to the Federal Government. It was brought out that the re was a gap between
the cities and the Federal Gov e rnment that must be filled. The state must do
its share.
Metro government has been rejected by the people in practically all cases .
Combine d city and county has worked in a few cases. One in particular is
Nashville , which was repr esented at the meeting . Maryland h as practically
all county government. The Council of Governments {COG) in Washington
seems to be an answer, t emporary or interim, at l east, but a stepping stone.
The discussion was continued in the afternoon with John Gunther, Executive
Dir ector of the Confer ence of Mayors, and Walter Scheiber, E xe cutive
Dir e ctor of the Washington Council of Gov ernments . ! was pl eased tha t
Mr. Glmthe r spoke very highly of Atlanta i n his r emarks . There i s no
r eason why our Council of Governments will not work.
The evening was free.
Tues d ay, Octob er 31:
The day's session on urban t echnolo gy and systematic management was a
g eneral discuss i on on how t echnology can b e fitt ed into politics and vice
v ersa . A very interesting discussion on the age old proble m of tryin g to
bring these two sides to gethe r.
The evening m ee ting was supposed to b e at the Potter's House on churches
and cities, but because of a mix up on bus sche dul es we could not get in to
the place . C ongresswoman Edith Gre e n of Oregon was the l eader.
I was anxious to h ear thi s because I think there is a place for the church in
the inner city and h ave b een inte r este d in our o wn e ffort s w ith St. Jude 's
House, Emmaus House and the Kirkwood Center.
�Page Five
Wendesda y, Noven1b e r 1:
Befor e the morning s es sion started a m an fro1n the Acact'!my of Scien ce
came in and posed a que sti on : "If you h ad seve r al million dollars to spend
in yotu city, what would you do with it?" There was little offe r ed until I
stuck my n e ck out and said I w ould spend it on e ducation, making a balanced
program of e ducation and r ec r e ation available to all children. This would be
a year-round program and would also include arts. This opened the flood
gates and some ve ry inte resting discussion follo w ed.
The r egular sess ion on the politics of the situation w a s l e d by staff members.
The afte rnoon wa s fr ee and I took the time to call on some fri e nds, i n cluding
Dick Russell and H e rman Talmadge , but found them both busy on Committ ee s.
The evening session was at Howard College a n d I think this was
for we did not get a chan c e to s ee the ir pl a nt. The session was
interes ting to m e . It was l e d by Dr. J. P . Speigel of Brandi e s
It was mostly statistical data, which prob ably accom1ted for the

Thursday , Nov e mbe r 2:
I n this s e ss i on, th e discussion was l ed by Congressman Joseph Karth of
Minnesota and Congr es sman Mc D ad e of P e nnsyl v ani a . Both w e r e g o od and

�Page Six
To sum up the entire confe rence, I would say it was well planned and
excellent in subjects chos en . To express the findings in a few words,
I would say the people, all people, are frustrated and want to be heard,
to feel th a t they have a part i n making things go .
There was considerable talk of "power structure" to which my r eply was
"We do not have a power structure in Atlanta. 11

'l'he Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor c£ Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen;
I have been somewhat disturbed for some months about
our Southwest section of Atlanta.
I cannot for the life of me se 3 why we the citizens of
Westend and Cascade Heights have to take the whole brunt
of the deal when it comes to the 11 intergration 11 problem.
It has really been thrushed down our throats too, much.
I was reading in two of our newspapers where several of
our Organiqations were going to do something about it.
I do h ope and pray that they can and am appealing to
you as Mayor to help us. After all we cannot all live
in the N. E. and N. w. sections of our fair city, but
we love our homes and friends as you all do.
Why can some ~ , these low cost housing projects be put
in other sections as these Newspapers p ointed out?
And also why can 't some of the colored be there also?
I am always reading where you say how well the Southwest sections meets the 11 intergration 11 problem. It
looks as though the U.S. supreme court and the City
officials push it down our throats.
I was so disturbed to read where soma observer said,
that Mayor Allen was 11 hell-bent 11 , to push this
housing problem through. Hhy can't areas like Lenox
Square and Buckhead have their pro-rata share of t n ese?
Please see if a fair deal in matters concerning the
things of which I have mentioned above, cannot be made
fai r and Christian to all of usJ

Dear Mr . Flanigen:
The Atlant Branch NAACP strongly urges that the request to re-zone th tract of
land situated on Sewell Road near Fairburn Road to allow the construction of some
650 public housing unit be di appr ed cause of th foll lng r scwu
a.
Th schools located in the C cade hei ht area would not be able
to acco date the chlldr n of parents moving lnto th new proj ct .
In thi s connection, the existing chools have already reac d a
tur Uon point, with th el entary chool utilizing
local
church for additional class room pace.
b. The northwest and southwe tar as alread¥ have 110ra than their sharci
ot public housing units lihich have created aany probl ems in wage,
chools, recr tional ands rvlce f cilitie tc.
c.
Th are adjacent t o the proposed site to build these units i ona
f the nic t resid4mtlal sectlo in the city open !or gro
occupancy. Every elf rt hould be

in that neighbor od. Further, present co
ty patterns hould
r naln const t ,
d
y effort made to
lntain th pres nt level

Approval of the
v re--zoning request. by your co11U1ittcie would lend nflraatl

Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Sir:
By way of introduction I a m Lt Colone l Raymond W. Qui nn, US Army,
Ft McPherson, Ge orgia and 624 Flamingo Drive , S. W., ~ tlanta, Georgia
30311.
On Thursday, 26 Oc tobe r 1967, at approximately 16 10 hours, I was
present at a meeting of the Board of Alderman (fo r t he firs t time in
my life) to listen to a pe tition from a development firm to rezone
Wi llis Mill Road, North of F lamingo Drive , from a re s identia l area to
an apar tment z one. Sinc e the opposition was a llott ed ten minutes, I
was unable to spc.:1 k my pie ce a nd I r ealize I c oul d ha ve r emai ne d until
all of t he peti t i ons had been heard, a_nd the n have t es tified . M,
military duties during this week prev ent e d me from stayi ng l a t e r than
1630 hours. I do not know whether or not a de cision has been ma de in
thi s matter , but rega rdless , I offer this i n consi de r ati on .
My plea is a pe r s onal one. This may not mea n much in a worl d where
money, stre ng th in numbers , and s t atistics seem to i n f luence the decisions of s ome aut horiti e s . I do no t have a pe t i t i on beari ng ma ny
signat ures; I hav e no pe tition at all . I f I did ha ve such a docume nt,
i t would be sig ne d by s uc h l umina ri e s a s my wife , my son , me , my two dogs
(Sheba and Charli e Brown) and the many hous t. g ue st s , both mi lita ry and
civilian, I have had since we built our home in Aug us t of 1964 ; which
l ea ds me to my next subj ec t, my lot,
Today, I mark twe nt y- s i x yea r s of serv i ce . In Nov -mber of 1963 I
wa s rea s s i gned fr om France to Atlanta a nd pr omptly moved int o a n apar tment , so I am familiar with apartment living a nd t he habits of so:11e of
t he pe opl e who occupy s uch dwe llings, We l iked what we saw in Atlanta
a nd immediate ly dec i ded t o live here perma nently upon my re ti reme nt in
March of 1971 . Wi th t his t houg h t in mind, we lo oked for a house to buy
or a lot on whic h t o bui l d a home . After mont hs of s earching we f ound
what we considered an i dea l spot on Flamingo Dri v e , S . W. We purchased
the lot from the Wilson Real t y Col•.pany and had our home constructed.
After we had moved i nto the house my son and I proc c edec' to clear the
�land from our house to the creek (UTOY) which took approximately five
months. (As a matter of int eres t, the good city of Atlanta hauled
away f i f t e en truc k loads of brush and debri s). We a lso cl ea ned out a nd
r earra nged the ro cks in the s tr eam to pe rmit a continuous f low of the
wat er at the border of our proper ty. We still clean the stream bed of
debris after each heavy rain and during this time of the year because
of the falling leaves, As a n after thoug ht, two years a go (I spent the
la st year in Vietnam) I star ted to cl ea r an additional part of our lot
and it took me two days to negotiat e a 45 by 45 foot strip. This will
give yo u a n idea as to what my son and I had to do to make this, in OJr
opinion (whi c h is also sha re d by many othe rs), not only the most beautiful lot on the stree t but one of the nices t in southwe st Atlanta. I
invit e you a nd your associates to see for your selv e s.
Now as to the land developing a gency and the hearing itself, Two
weeks ago I received a notice fr om the Planning Commi ssion regarding
the Rez oning Proposal. I was one of £our or five pe opl e to r e ceive such
noti f ication, even thoug h it would appea r to me that a ll of the re sidents
of Flaming o Drive could be a ffe ct e d by this propo s it i on, I have never
been involved in this type action before, so I call ed the Wils on Real
Estate Age ncy to se cur e some information pri or to the hearing , I did not
rece ive anything s ubstantial from them at tha t t ime; howev er , Mr. Mike
Wil s on did call our home a f ew days l a t er anJ said he would like to
b rief us (my wi fe and me ) on the plan for deve l oping the area in ques tion.
On Monda y , the 23rd of Oct ob e r, Mr , Wi l s on and the developer came to my
home and present ed t he proj e ct, I bri ng this poi nt out only t o illu s trat e
the fac t that, a lthoug h (according to the proponent s peakers at the meeting ) this plan had been develope d over s i x months ago , no one f rom the
Deve lopers or Wil son Rea lty had the common c ourtesy t o call upon us and
get our response t o the plan, I t's not that we we ren't availab l e; I r e turne d from Vi c tNam in :rune of t hi s year and my wife rema ined in our home
during rny tour ove rseas, If thi.s is fair business pr oc('clurc t hen oppar ntly my sense of justice i s warped,
To conclude this epist le, I add the f ollowing in no specia l chronological order. My life savings have gone into this house/lot inve s tment
and I am not wealthy s o I cannot afford t o suffe r a drastic loss in property
value . I continue to pour my money in this house/lot complex because we
love our area but this will stop if the apartment hous e s are permitted to
be built. Our house was robbed in broad daylight in March of 1966 (you can
see we are rathe r isolated , by c hoice), but I ca n live thr ough this but I
could not tolerat e the thoug ht of apartme nt houses in the near vicinity.

Dear Sir:
This letter is pertaining to the rezoning of the southwest
corner of West lake Ave. at Simpson Road. rt comes up for rezoning September 18, 1.967. Rezoning would do an immense amount of
damage to our property and to our community. Rezoning from
residential to commercial status would bring about an immediate
devaluation in our property values. Another imminent danger is that
the rezoning of this piece of property would provide grounds for the
rezoning of properties on each side or adjacent to it. This would
open a flood-gate for the establishment of businesses and most of
them would be of a honky-tonk nature down Simpson Road and up West
Lake Ave. This would cause some of our neighbors to s ell and run
and those who couldn 1 t s ell and run would have to stay and suffer.
We have pleaded with the zoning committee for over ten years to
consider the west side of West Lake Ave . as a proper place and line
to stop or call a halt to commercial rezoning. The zoning committee
and the entire Board of Aldermen have s een fit to grant us this
plea each year for t en or mor e years . By their just and judicious
decisions , we have been able to maintain the tranquillity and pr oper
image of our community. We are deepl y appr eciative of this kind of
~ction and it i s our hope that it will continue.
The re sidents of this area mak~ up thirty or more families .
This area is composed of t wo bl ocks of We st lake Ave; one bl ock of
Simpson Rd; and all of Ezra Church Rd. The area falls i n precinct
?A. The re sidents are stable ci tizens . They vote in all el ect i ons.
Because of previ ous rezonings whi ch have had a deleteri ous effect
on our cornraunity, we are constantly on guard to prevent any change
in t he zoning of our communit y area. We are against the establishment of a filling st ation or any other kind of commerci al establishment on the afore m8ntioned propert y. As in the past years, we look
to you for a just and fair decison and also we admonish you to be
aware of any behind-the-scene maneuvers which would work against us
and to frown upon such tactics.
�Page 2
S.eptemb1:;r 14) 1967
Our closing statdllent is that we sincerely hope that this property
will not be rezoned and we will be permitted to enjoy the fruits of
our investme~ts and the tranquillity of our community for the rest
of our lives~
Sincerely yours;
111tN£~ .

Gentlem n:
Again, I find it necess ry to plead with
you for your cooperation in regards to the rezoning petition of property located at the corner
of West Lake Avenue and Sim_p son Road, N. w. I
need not tell you the cone rn I have , as do all

neighborhood strictly residential . This desir
wa ex_p res ed to you on August 24th, when the
public haring wash ld, at which tim I s rved
a a spoke man for my neighbor in the Urban Vill
Sub-division .
For elev n years I hav liv d at my pres nt
address, and for almo t the same number of y rs I
have found it n cs ary to prot t th re-zoning
of property on the wet sid of w st Lak Av nu
for comm roial u
by any speculators. I am not
again t bu in - s ventur a by anyone, for I realiz
th need for bu iness for mor munioip 1 r venu,
_by th
m tok n, I know th n d for mori neighborhood stabilization. I also recogniz then d for
a grater ttort on th part of city offici ls to
alleviat th d t rioration of xisting n ighborhood.
I do not profs to be a city plann r, but I
k you ag in Mr. Ald rm n, would th city build n

(namely, thew lt r F. White le ntary School ·

Dear Mrs. Moses:
Enclosed is a copy of a letter which I forwarded to
Mayor Allen regarding the rezoning of the property
on Northside Parkway.
I would appreciate your letting
Mayor Allen see this letter, as I want him to be as
familiar with this situation as possible.
I know it was not clear in my letter to Mayor Allen,
but we have written letters to Mr. Flanigen and, of
course we have appeared before the zoning committee
on this case. My othe r purpose in forwarding this
letter to Mayor Allen is to have him know how the
citizens in this area feel regarding this matter.
Sincerely,
~~

Dear Mr. Farr i s:
The home owne r s i n the No rthwe st por t ion of the c ity a r e deeply conc e rned o v er the app lication for anothe r hospital loc ated o n Northside
Parkway above We st Paces Fer ry Road.
We h~ve voiced our opinions and
d esires befor e the zoning committ e e at t h e public meeting concerning
t h is application last week.
We want each member of t he a ldermanic
b oard to know o f our c oncern and int ere s t i n k eeping this area for
re s i d entia l u s e .
Ha ving liste ned to planning and z o n ing p r oblems f o r more than t e n y e ars
a n d h aving p r o fessi o n a l training i n land planning, I very firml y believe
that t h is pro pe rty under considerat i o n s h o uld remain as a n integral p a rt
of this very fine residential area of outsta nding home s .
It is v e ry
d istas t e f ul to me to h a v e the proponent s i mp l y that a change of zoning in
that a rea is inev itable, that it wou ld b e best to arb i trate at th i s time
a nd to accept the proposed appl ication , as the City Alderme n would
definitely chang e the z on ing on this p rope rty.
I know t he City Alder men
are not sub j e ct t o this type o f re a son ing .
The only reason ne i ghborh oods deteriorate i s because we let them.
Where
we maintain high ~o ning standard s, g ood bu i ld ing practices, citizens
interested in ma intain ing the i r ne i ghbo rhood, residential zon ing lasts
for centurie s.
This p a rticu l ar pr o perty of 64 ac r es i s s u rr ounded on
three sides by l arge , fi n e homes . The f ourth side is Northside Parkway.
It i s de nse ly covered with ta l l pine and har d wood trees a nd a heavy undergrowth o f native shrubbery , including azaleas ~nd dogwoods.
No other
area is mo r e ide a lly su i ted fo r b e aut i fu l h ome s ites.
We wh o l ive in t h e neighborhood are c onfide nt that y ou wi ll assist us in
ma inta i ni ng t h i s area for r esident i a l use .

Re:
Zoning Application #Z-67-50
22 acre tract on Piedmont Road
between Ivy Road and Roswell Road
Gentlemen:
Within t he pa st year , I pur chas ed a home at 254 Alberta
Drive, N. E. i n the be lief tha t I would enjoy quie t pos sess i on.
Th i s has not bee n the case.
Since t he time of pur chase, it s ee ms that I have spent
a gr eat dea l of my t i me at tending z oning hearings be f ore your
Board. I have g l adly done t h i s, as a homeowner must be prepared
t o make his posit i on known when h is neighborhood is in jeopardy,
and I wi s h to take th i s opportunity to make my per sona l feelings
known to the Board.
I am concerned about the recurring statements that ,
numerous applicants have made to the Board that the area of
Piedmont Road between Peachtree Road and Roswell Road is no
longer suited to residential purposes. If substantial citizens
continue to live in t he area and are willing to defend their
residences as vigorously as have the homeowners in this area,
I believe these facts clearly prove the contrary.
�The Board of Aldermen
of the City of Atlanta
Page Two
July 14, 1967
It is true that some homes have been sold in this area ·
over a period of years and it is true that speculators and developers have purchased the property because they are able to
pay more than a homeowner if they are confident that they can
get the property rezoned for business purposes.
I do not believe it is necessary to expand on the me thods of developers who purchase residential property and allow i t
to consciously fall into disrepair, thereby blighting the neighborhood.
At the present time, there is n o way to pr ohibit this
unf ortunate s i tuation by direct action; however, throu gh our
·e lect e d repre s en ta t i ves , I would hope tha t it is poss i ble to
stop this tactic by making it clearly understood that developers
may not create an undesirable situation and then capitalize on
it by c oming before this Board and a rguing that the pr ope rty is
now unsu ited f or r es i de nt ia l purposes , thereby r e quiring its conversi on to business pur pos e s. I t is my firm b e l ief t hat it would
take but a f ew instances of the Board upho l d ing the h ome owners
in estab l ished neighborhood s t o effect ively halt the c reation of
t r ansitional ne ighbor hoods. It would be i ll -adv ised f or develop ers to purchase s uch pr operty ~f they were aware that the Board
o f Aldermen wou l d not grant requests for rezoning merely because
they are creating an undesirab le situation in a neighborhood.
In short, gen t lemen, the citizens and homeowners of
this City must rely on you t o protect their i nteres ts, and it
was for this purpose that you were chosen b y the voter s a nd i t
would seem to be your dut y and responsibility to do so a s long
as it does not interfere with the growth and deve lopment of our
City.
This rais e s the que s tion whe ther it is in the best interests of At l anta to pre s erv e these ne i ghbor hood s or to allow
sprawling dev elopment anywhere dev e l opers can create an unstable
situation. If the lat ter is a llowed to continue, the City of
Atlanta will be composed ev entua lly of bu s i ness establishments,

housing which generally is being rented from unconcerned landlords and isolated residential sections of Atlanta which appear
secure but which very few individuals may take advantage of both
because of limited physical area and finances.
I am thirty years of age with a family and at the · time
of purchasing my home, I considered whether it would be best to
live in the City or in an outlying area such as Sandy Springs.
After careful consideration, I chose the former because I did not
wish to divide and isolate my business and residential activities.
In general, I felt it was to my interest and hopefully of benefit
to the City to place both my business and civic loyalty in one
place and I will continue to do so if I am allowed to remain i n
-a neighborhood within the City in which I can take pride. I say
this only because I believe many families in my same age group
share the same feelings.
If, however, you feel that the City would prosper best
under the well-known "doughnut" development of many American
cities, then I concede that the application in question should
be approved.
Gentlemen, I am sure that all of the opinions and beliefs stated in this letter are already well-known to you and
that as conscientious public servants you have weighed them carefully. My only purpose in communicating them t o you is to n o tify you that this homeowner, and others as well, feel that the
ultimate questions to be decided by you are the ones stated above;
that we are aware of this situation; and that we are awaiting anxiously your decision. The proposed encroachment on this residential area will not strike a death blow to the entire residential
city, of course, but I suggest that it presents a classic and
typical case and the lines for future action can be seen in your
decision on this application.

A regularly scheduled meeting of the Planning and Development
Committee of the Board of Aldermen was held on Friday, May 26,

The Chairman called the meeting to order and the following business
was considered:
Following a brief explanation o f its o rigin and purpose by Mr. Gladin,
the cormnittee unanimously adop ted a resolution approving a request for
financial assistance t o plan, develop, and implement a comprehensive
program of · economic redevelopment in the Mode l Neighborhood.
Relative to the organization of the City's Model Neighborhood Program,
Mr . Gladin stat~d a proposal has been made to expand the seven member
Executive Board to nine members in order to permit an additional member
from the neighborhood involved and another from the Negro leadership at
large.
This was unanimously approved by the cormnittee.



































Mr . George Aldridge, Ditector of the CIP, stated we are now approaching
the Final CIP report after two and one-half years of stµdy. He presented
each committee member with an Agenda and background notes on today's

presentation by the consultqn ts and then stated that two and one-half
years ago the City began with ten studies in the CIP. These were listed
as follows: Planning, Sewers, Design, Social and Welfare, Equal Opportunity
In Housing, Relocation, Economic/Marketability, Administrative, Legal and
Fiscal. He then stated that these ten studies group themselves into
basically four categories-:- physical, social, administrative and governmental,
insofar as conditions, trends and implication for future development, etc.
are concerned; that these CIP studies are geared toward a program of action
and today he would like to begin a work session with the corrn:nittee with a
view toward adoption of a Final CIP Program of Action; that the people who
have worked on it up to this point are not in agreement and cannot be until
a final program is in such form that it is acceptable to the Mayor and Board .
of Aldermen; that the Program of Action should be detailed to meet Atlanta's
needs, its intent for future development, its capabilities and resources.
Mr. Aldridge stated he had originally reserved three dates on three successive
Fridays for the work sessions, beginning today; that whether all, or more
meetings will be needed is open at this time but the technicians felt they
have gone as far as they can go prior to involving the Mayor and Board of
Aldermen. He then turned the meeting over to Mr. Candeub.
Mr. Candeub briefly stated ~hat the purpose of the work to date was to develop
a program f or the City of Atlanta which could carry out, over a period of time,
all of the improvement needs of the City in a very coordinated fashion and
with relation to the economic needs of the City's physical requirements. Mr.
Candeub then stated that at this point there .is ~asically two types of
items for the aldermen to consider - the form of a program for the improvement
of areas needing improvement and the scale of priorities and level of commitment.
He then introduced John Brown, in charge of their Atlanta office.
Mr. Brown addressed the . committee at length relative to the above items
with the use of accompanying maps and charts, listed as follows:
Staged Program For Improvement Action
This chart divided the City into eight sectors and within each sec t or three
major elements of the CIP were covered , i.e., Improvement Treatment; Public
Facilities and Concentrated Social Action. These three categories were further
broken down into staging areas and three time periods(l967-70 ; 1971-75; 1976-83),
all geared to the year 1983.
It was explained at this point that a staging area was analogous to a neighborhood
and .a s.ector similar to a district.
Proposed Treatment
This chart indicated three types o f proposed treatment: Selective Redevelopment,
Rehabilitation and Code Conservation. Priorities were indicated with color
codes and also shown were "no treatment" areas. A second map was displayed
illustrating this on a larger scale.

Sharing of Program Costs
Three fiscal charts were exhibited. The first chart illustrated the
total cost of the CIP, as well as the City and Federal share. The second
chart showed, in greater detail, the first chart by indicating the cost
of the CIP to the City geared to the three time periods aforementioned.
The third chart s~owed _comparative sector costs by time periods.
Mr. Brown explained that the number of years in the three time periods
varied. The first one was timed to coincide with the City's current
Capital Improvements'Program; the second time period was based on information
available in that increment and the third represented the remainder of
the time.
Chairman Cook made the observation that the meeting was open to questions
and following a brief discussion, he concluded the -meeting by saying
that the information presented was very general in nature.and that he felt
he could not make a decision unless he had an opportunity, along with the
committee, to evaluate the individual treatment of each sector in much
more detail and requested that the consultants return _at the next scheduled
meeting on Friday, June 2, to present the more detailed findings of their
studies. The consultants concurred.
There being no further business, the meeting was ad1ourned.

Dear Mr . Flanigen:
Re item Z-67-33G on agenda, Zoning Committee meeting April 6, 1967.
The Housing Resources Committee is very much interested in getting
this site rezoned to A-1 or A-~ Limited in order to permit construction
·of 224 1-.ousing uni ts under 22ld ( 3) Coop as a part of the Mayor 's
accelerated housing program.
These would be sales housing, not rental apartments 1and with the 3%
mortgage money available through this program will permit home ownership with monthly payments less than rent would be under other financing methods . In addition, the portion of monthly payments attributable
· to interest would be deductible for income tax purposes.
The Foundation for Cooperative Housing, a very competent and experienced
nationaf ~p; ofit organization, is sponsoring the development and
·
management -of this project.
It is this Committee 's feeling that this is the most pract ical use for
this land and should tend to uplift rather than pull down, the
neighborhood.
I urgently request that your Committee give reconsideration to the re zoning of this tract.
James H. Fincb, F.A.I.A.

Land L ots 228 and 229, Di s t. 14 .
My home a t t he a bove add r es·s is adj ac en t to the p rope rty
up f or r ezoni ng. I wish to be hea rd, and find tha t I
wi l l be ou t of town.~ Henc e t h is l e tt e r~
S i nc e I feel ve ry s trongly abou t t his recu rri ng matt e r,
th i s l ~t t~r will be· l enght y and i n some deta il.~ I beg
your i ndulgence:~
We moved he r e 5 yea r s ago and bu i l t the house on t h i s
l ot-0-, We d i d s o because of its conven i ent locat io n and
the high type: middle class homes wh i ch form th i s community. Three Atlanta friends also cited certa i n advantages
to having a city of Atlanta addresso These advantages,
I am sorry to say, have alli p roven fallaciouso.As a matter of fact, these helpful friends now reside
outside th~ city limits. The principue reason for· moving:
they became disenchante~ by official acts of the c i ty·
government which penalized, or threatened to· penalize,
them as home-owning citi'zensQ..
These people, like the ones now living in the Continentil..
Colony area-, are middle--to ...upp_~r-middle income group
ioho form the source-wel~ for community leaders - prime
movers for better living conditions, better homes and
churches· and schools, who create and demand upgraded
standards~ They are the ones who are f ill to· pay the
price to help themselves have bett~r ti ngs of 1 ife, such
as a community that cares, a bit of privacy, minimum of noise and confusions, good neighbors, happy environ,runent, etc.
And they are the ones who are most willing to help the
less fortunate toward the same goals.
Now this p~titton is aimed directly• at thes~ kind of
peopl~. To put it mildly, another dis~nchantment, another
example of so-called planning - like the expressway ramps I have been witness to befor~ in your city hall,. a kind of
harassment encouraged and condoned by city offici Isa
�-2-
This is the ma in reason why the p e ople of Sandy Springs
last year chose not to become citizens of Atlanta ; and
the same reason why a slum group did join up:o Jou creat e
conditions intolerable for the first group, while the second
is hoping for a littLe better j)Iace tha n they have°"
This is also the reason why,. out of a group of 23 people
transferred to Atlanta several years ago by one of our
larger national conce r/f.,, only two stilI have a city of
.l+.tlanta · address a. And ~hese were people in the T2, 000 {114, 000, and above:, saTary range:..,. I know, . I was· one of
themo
A nd it is the reason why you wilL drive more· people: out,
and create more slums. If this rezoning is approved the
Continental Colony area of homes will begin a slow det e rioration tha t is inherent with the coming of a large apartment complex tha t blocks the orderly developm e nt of a
resid -ental' s ection. People in the :/h5, 000 - lh B, 000 inca:nu~
group, which will include clos e to Bo% of those in this·
area, will not· put up with th e condition that will come
and t hey will move out, even a t a loss. The house s wi l l
eithe r sta nd empty for a whil e.i, , or be occupi ed by a lo we r
i ncome g roup'4 The n repea ted,. downwa rd steps each time·.
Thi s is simpl y the s ocial" history of mu n icipal de t e rioni. t io na
Check with any Sociolog y PHD a t Emory or Ga . S t a t e or Te e n.
When a small ' r es ident al area of a c ·ity i s isola t ed and bl ocked

depth.
Now for anothe r p o int of c ontention. The claim that the
addit ion of an apa rtmen t' Compl ex will: increase: property
valu~s i s bare-faced· untro,~: and misleading. Value , of course·,
is somewhat of a relative term., What one hol'ds dear, another
will d i scard. But anyway you slice it, this land with
apartments nf!xt d oo r, will not be more: valuable t o the
present hom~oumers or futu r e homeowners~ I have gon~ throu<]k
this befor'e, and so have othersp In tenns of money,. which'
is not t he oniy c ti teria for value, the amount ranges from


400'0.00 to #6000.00 less~


z· certainiy will lose money~ How~ver the amount will be small
to what the city of Atlanta will lose over a period of say, 15 years-.
I have seen nothing in the plans offered that will counteract
the prospect of deterioration and loss of value to the home
owner, Despite the brightly· colored brochures and pt!rsuasive
words of the project promoters, these are essentially· the S~NI'=
two-·story, box type· building, so well knoun in this area as

happened before,;,,
There is quite a drainage problem here, you knou.
Yet, in spite of all this, the city seems bent of penalizing
the type of citizen you would think it would want to the
most to keep. Not only to keep, but to bring in more of the
same kind - the ones wit'fi the time, the little extra money,
the educated background, the self-motivated inclination

Dear Ivan:
As you may know, my client, Continental Development Corporation, helped develop Greenbriar and made that land available and
have developed a beautiful residential sub-division nearby.
They
are now planning an $18,000,000 apartment complex near Greenbriar.
It is planned as one of the most beautiful in the history of
Atlanta and I attach a brochure which will give you the informationa 1 data.
Since this is a most important project, we would solicit your
support in behalf of this fine enterprise.
It has been approved
by the West End Business Men's Association. As you know , they
have been influential in bringing many fine things to West End,
and Mr . Edgar Schukraft is going to appear with us .
~
If you have any questions or if there is anything further
that I could tell you about it that would enable you to give us
urther assistance, I would appreciate your calling me .
With kind personal regards, I am

Dear Mr. Schwaemmle:
As managing partner of Greenbriar Shopping Center, I woul d
like to state that we would welcome well planned and we ll
constructed high-class apartments in the Greenbriar area.
We feel that this area is now and will continue to dev elop
into the h u b o f Southwest Atlanta. We exp ect to see well
pl a nned office and bus iness d e v ~ lopments aro und us, and this
type of dev elopmen t c ertainly c a ll s fo r t h e suppor t o f
multi -fami ly dwellings .
We would oppose l ow rental apartments o r a ny type of housing
that would downgrade the area. We feel that luxury t ype
apar tments would be a d e finite asset to the area .

The Directors of the West Bnd Business Men's
Association adopted the following resolution at its
December meeting December 20, 1966.
Whereas, an application has been filed for
zoning apartments on Mt. Gilead Road Adjacent to
Greenbriar Shopping Center by the Continental Development Co., and,
Whereas, we believe that apartments in this
general area would be beneficial to the economy and
well-being of · this area, t~e Directors of the West Bnd
Business Men's Association request that the Zoning · soard

Continental Development Corporation proposes to build, own, and manage an
apartment complex on approximately eighty acres of land immediately south

recreational facilities, and being strategically located between the Atlanta
Municipal Airport and the rapidly ex-panding Fulton Industrial District.
By providing adequate and prestige housing this development, represent:ing
a minimum investment of $18,000,000,will assist in accelerating the pace
of growth in Southwest Atlanta started by the completion of Greenbriar and

RE:
Adequate School FacilitiesGreenbriar area
Gentlemen:
Plans of the ~tlanta Board of Education assure adequate school facilities
in this area to accommodate the developments of the Continental Development
Corporation. The site for the Continental Colony elementary school was included in the original development plans of the corporation. and the Board
decided upon this site at the urging of the corporation. This site was
sold to the Board of Education at cost. The school is architecturally designed to acccmmodate the addition of eight classrooms to the north without
interfering with the overall opera t ion or design. This school was established
in this area to accommodate children living on the east side of the perimeter
highway. Approximately 50% of the present enr ollment comes from the west
side of the perimeter highway, an area to be served by the new Ben Hill school
and a school to be located in the Brentwood sub-division, a site established
in the overall land plan of this sub-division.
It can be re adily seen that the Atlanta Board of Education is cognizant of
the development in this area and appropriate plans have been developed to
assure the orderly construction of adequate school facilities to acc ommoda te
the anticipated growth . The corporation has always endea.v ored to advise the
school authorities of its plans in this area and they have acted accordingl y .
Sur veys of apartment complexes of similar character and complexion of the
ones we propose readily indicate an extremely small percentage of school age
children.

GREENBRIAR
"The shopping ce nter with bui lt-in Spring"
December 1, 1966
Continental Development Corporation
1871 Plaza Lane, S.W.
Atlanta, Georgia
Gentlemen:
As manager of Greenbriar Shopping Center, I would like to add
my support to your petition for re-zoning of property in the
Greenbriar area.
Let me say that we, obviously, have an interest in multi-family
development of this property; consequently, we naturally would
be interested.
Let me further state, however, that our interest goes beyond
the Greenbriar Shopping Center and the additional business
that this development would generate.
If Atlanta Metro is to support two million people by 1983, it _
becomes apparent to us that the available land located this
near the central business district should be zoned for mul t.ifam i ly units.
In other words, the professional op1n1on of consultants whom we
have employed state the highest and best ~se of this property
would be multi-family development. This 1s not to say that
all property within a certain distance from the central bus~
iness district should be .zoned multi-family family. We are
saying that the land contiguous to a development such as
Greenbriar Shopping Center leads itself to high density development . Of course, this has been true around Lenox Square as
well as practically every other regional shopping center throughout the country.

Let me emphasize that this op1n1on 1s that of the management
·of Greenbriar; in that, it does not necessarily reflect the
view of each merchant . I felt that my opinion should be voiced
and hope that we are able to have honest differences of opinion
with all interested parties.
All professional information points to the fact that this is
another step important to the continuing growth of metropolitan
Atlanta.
Sincerely yours,

we· appreciate the opportunity of discussing the proposed financing of
apartments you plan to build on the fifty acre site east of Mount Gilead

We would be most interested in future discussion in connection with financing
this project.

· After inspecting the land which you own adjacent

which you have developed for the construction
of garden apartments, I agree with you that
the highest and best use of this land would be
for multiresidential development.
Although we are most limited in funds available

the zoning change is approved and you are ready
to discuss financ i ng, I would like an opportunity
to consider mortga ge financing.

RE:
Proposed Apartment Site
East Side Proposed Extension
Mt. Gilead Road
I have made an on site inspection of the subject property
this 21st day of November, 1966 for the purpose of determining the feasibility of the proposed project.
I have been in the mortgage loan business in Atlanta for
twelve years and have made several loans in the Fountaine
Bleau Subdivision which adjoins the subject property. I
am also an appraiser holding the MAI designation and have
made appraisals on houses adjoining the subject property.
Based on my personal inspection of this property and seeing
the proposed plot plan showing a 150 foot buffer zone between
the apartment buildings and the homes on Black Forest Trail
(homes nearest to the apartment) and knowing the type apartments that are proposed on this site, I do not feel the
single family homes will be affected adversely. In fact, it
is my opinion as an appraiser that this proposed development
will provide the most desirable buffer between the single
family residential subdivision and the area zoned commercial
which will be developed in the near future with various types
of improvements. It is also a buffer from the side view of
the Greenbriar Shopping Center .
In review, it is my opinion that an attractive apartment project on this site would be a proper improvement and would not
the
adversely affect valu/:.ro7)..:;Rerty.

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Mayor Ivan Allen , J r .
FROM:
Collier Gladin
SUBJECT :
Rezoning Petition #Z-66-259-F
Mt. Gilead Road Ex tension
Continental Colony has applied for rezoning for apartment use (A- 1)
of approximately 84 acres south of Greenbriar Shopping Center. The
application is scheduled for public hearing on January 19 and has
received a favorable recommendation of the Joint Planning Board and
our staff.
This petition was filed at approximately this time last year along
with several others also for apartment use in this area. Since a large
portion of the area around Greenbriar Shopping Center is undeveloped
our staff has spent considerable time studying this area in order to
determine the appropriate land uses and community facilities necessary
as further development takes place.
On the basis of our studies, we feel that apartment use of this tract,
for which zoning is requested, is justifiable on the basis of its
relationship to Greenbriar Shopping Center; the Circumferential and the
need for apartment units in this area.
We have worked with the developers and site planners of this project
to provide what we feel is adequate open space adjacent to the singlefamily area east of this tract. We feel we have achieved a far more
desirable plan than was proposed last year. We understand, however,
that there is still considerable opposition to apartments by area
residents.

Re:
Continental Development Corporation
Gentlemen:
Enclosed you will find a brochure containing detailed data
of zoning pet i tion fi led by my client on the proposed Mt. Gilead
Road extension asking re-zoning of property in that area to A-1
and A-L.
I would like to state that in the 84 acres involved, there
is very low densi ty with extrao rdi nar ily fine planning by Danielson
& Paine Architects and Willard Byrd on land scaping.
For example,
the density on the East si de of said property will be from nine to
ten units per acre with a minimum _l50 foot area betwee n the development and the adjacent residential areas on which no permanent
structures will be built a nd they have so covenanted.
In addition, there will be a beautiful clubhous e faci lity
with swimming pool, tennis courts , and golf putting greens which
will be made available to the adj oining residential owners.
We attach letters from the owner of Greenbriar, MAI appraisers,
and others to indicate that the highest and best use for this property is multi-unit use . We ~ave set out in great detail the need
for this zoning in ·our Certificate of Necessity.
very truly,

Plans of the Atlanta Board of Education assure adequate school facilities
in this area to accormnodate the developments of the Continental Development
Corporation. The site for the Continental Colony elementary school was included in the original development plans of the corporation, and the Board
decided upon this site at the urging of the corporation. This site was

purchased.
I t can be readily seen that the Atlanta Board of Education is cognizant of

assure the orderly construction of adequate school facilities to accormnodate
the anticipated growth. The corporation has always endeavored to advise the

people to the area, and an extension of these privileges to the adjoin:ing
residents will certainly make this entire area an attractive and prestige
location.
Very truly yours,

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
RE:
Proposed Apartment Site
East Side Proposed Extension
Mt. Gilead Road
I have made an on site inspection of the subject property
this 21st day of November, 1966 for the purpose of determining the feasibility of the proposed project.
I have been in the mortgage loan business in Atlanta for
twelve years and have made several loans in the Fountaine
Bleau Subdivision which adjoins the subject property. I
am also an appraiser holding the MAI designation and have
made appraisals on houses adjoining the subject property .
Based on my personal inspection of this property and seei ~~
the proposed plot plan showing a 150 foot buffer zone be t weer
the apartment buildings and the homes on Black Forest Trail
(homes nearest to the apartment) and knowing the type apa r t ments that are proposed on this site, I do not feel the
single f amily homes will be aff ected adversely. In fact , i ~
is my opinio n as an appraiser that this proposed develo p~e~ t
will provide the most desirable buffer between the single
family residenti al subdivision and the area zoned commer c:i.al
which will be developed in the near future with various type s
of improvements . It is also a buffer from the side view f
the Gr eenbriar Shopping Center .
In revi ew , it is my opinion that an attractive apartment ~c oject on this site would be a proper improvement and woul~ not
adversely affect the value of the surrounding pr?~e r!y.

Gentlemen:
After inspecting the land which you own adjacent
to the Greenbriar Shopping Center and the plan
which ~ou have developed for the construction
of garden apartments, I agree with you that
the highest and best use of this land would be
for multiresidential development.
Although we are most limited in funds available
for investment at this time, when, as, and if
the zoning change is approved and you are ready
to discuss financing, I would like an opportunity
to consider mortgage financing.
ery truly,
President

Continental Development Corporation
1871 Plaza Lane, S.W.
Atlanta, Georgia
Gentlemen:
As manager of Greenbriar Shopping Center, I would like to add
my support to your petition for re-zoning of property in the
Greenbriar area.
Let me say that we, obviously, have an interest in multi-family
development of this property; consequently, we naturally would
be interested.
Let me further state, however, that our interest goes beyond
the Greenbriar Shopping Center and the additional business
that this development would generate.
If Atlanta Metro is to support two million people by 1983, it _
becomes apparent to us that the available land located this
near the central business district should be zoned for multifamily units.
In other words, the professional opinion of consultants whom we
have employed state the hi ghest and best ~se of this property
would be multi - family development. This 1s not to say that
all property within a certain distance from the central business district should be zon ed multi - fam i ly family . We are
saying that the land contiguous to a development such as
Gr eenb ri ar Shopping Center leads itself to high density development . Of course , this has been true a round Lenox Squar e as
wel l as pr acti cally every other r egional shopp ing cen t er t hro ughout t he co unt r y.

Let me emphasize that this op1n1on is that of the management
·of Greenbriar; in that, it does not necessarily reflect the
view of each merchant. I felt that my opinion should be ,voiced
and hope that we are able to have honest differences of opinion
with all interested parties.
All professional information points to the fact that this is
another step important to the continuing growth of metropolitan
Atlanta.
Sincerely yours,

Dear Mr. Allen:
On January 19, an application submitted by the Continental
Development Corporation is to be heard concerning rezoning
of property adjacent tothe Greenbriar Shopping Center for
apartment uses.
Although I have no personal interest in the corporation
requesting zoning changes, I feel that the best interests
of the City of Atlanta will be served if this application
is approved. It is my understanding that the West End
Businessmen s Association, all of the merchants at Greenbriar
and others are in favor of the rezoning as requested.
1
If you can recommend approval of these zoning changes, I
shall appreciate it more thari you know.
With kindest personal regards, I am
Sincerely yours,
