Cobb County Approves 33-Story Retirement High-Rise

Cobb County Commission approved a rezoning application for City View Holdings to construct a 33-story retirement high-rise tower on Cumberland Boulevard west of Cobb Parkway.  City View Holdings requested rezoning from UC (Urban Condominium Residential) to UC With Stipulations. 

The  UC district allows the development of high rise residential condominium dwelling units, including the combination of low and mid-rise condominium buildings.  There is no maximum building height for urban condominiums constructed within a UC district. Rather, the number of stories and building heights for such projects is to be determined on a case by case basis. 

“This is going to be the tallest building in the county at that time,” said County Commission Chairman Sam Olens.

The proposed residential building will become the tallest building in Cobb County housing 200 independent living units on 25 floors and 54 assisted living units on four floors. The other floors will be used for support services.

By comparison, the Riverwood 100 office tower at 3350 Riverwood Parkway is only 23 floors.

  1. Hey Cool, I had not heard about this. I have lived in One Vinings Mountain for the past 2 years and thought that was the highest Residential building in Cobb County. With this current economic situation I would be curious how long this particular project is going to take. I have also noticed how popular Retirement condos have been in Atlanta. My office is near Buckhead and I have seen a few very large Retirement buildings go up in that area and Brookhaven off Peachtree.

    Oh well, Once again great post and thanks for taking the time to put it up.
