Commercial real estate developer Eden Rock Real Estate Partners intends to convert a former school-administration center into a mixed-use project in the Hammond Park neighborhood of Atlanta. The project at 786 Cleveland Ave. would include a Space Shop Self Storage facility and a mix of commercial uses that could include retail and restaurants. The $2.7 million project would repurpose the existing three-story, 100,829-square-foot structure, as well as an addition, according to the source.
Eden Rock submitted a permit application last week, with the hope of beginning construction on the self-storage facility as quickly as possible, principal Brandon Ashkouti told the source. Though final decisions haven’t been made as to uses, both site plans prepared by the developer include the Space Shop facility. One also includes a 4,200-square-foot restaurant and a 2,700-square-foot oil-change outlet. The other pairs the restaurant with a 2,000-square-foot coffee shop, the source reported.
The existing building formerly housed administrative offices for Fulton County Schools. Eden Rock and Space Shop acquired the property in January, according to the source.
Space Shop operates nine self-storage facilities in the Atlanta market and one in Goose Creek, S.C.
