At "Decatur Crossing," Fuqua's future development on the soon-to-be-former site of Scott Boulevard Baptist Church, things are little more preliminary. Fuqua said his firm closed on the church and nine surrounding homes in the North Decatur Road/Scott Boulevard/Barton Way triangle last fall. A salvage company has reportedly already stripped the church, and many adjacent homes are boarded up.
Twenty-eight other nearby homes are still in the zoning process, which Fuqua expected to be complete in April or May. Following that timeline, construction would begin this summer and take about 18 months.
The first nine-month phase of that, Fuqua said, would bring 250 apartment and/or condo units, about 50 townhomes and some office and retail spaces - namely a "natural food store." Exact specs for Phase II weren't available, but Fuqua said it would, residentially speaking, "get a little denser" than the initial phase.
