Kova Realty, LLC, a real estate development company, is proposing to build a townhome community on Columbia Drive in our neighborhood. The subject properties upon which these townhomes are proposed to be built are located at 1484 Columbia Drive and 1520 Columbia Circle and are approximately 2.51 and 0.22 acres, respectively. This property is on the east side of Columbia Drive near the intersection with the Santa Monica Dr.
The current Land Use designation of this property is Suburban in the DeKalb County Comprehensive Land Use Plan and are in the R-75 (single-family residential medium lot) District. The property currently contains no habitable structures, a few trees, and is essentially undeveloped. Kova intends to clear the property, enhance the perimeter buffers, if necessary, and develop approximately 30 to 34 single-family attached units (Townhomes) known as Columbia Heights Townhomes. The townhomes are expected to be 3-storey with an average size of 1,700 sq. ft. To build this proposed townhome community, the developer must request that this land be rezoned to MR-1 (medium density residential).
This proposed rezoning application will be presented to the DeKalb County District 3 Community Council meeting on Wednesday evening, August 18, 2021. This meeting will be conducted by Zoom and will begin at 5:30 PM. The web link of this Zoom meeting is :
