Schilling Farms Lands Office HQ and Two Residential Projects

Boyle and Schilling Farms partner Harry Smith have entered into a joint venture with Clyde Patton and Bruce Taylor to develop The Carrington, an upscale mixed-use neighborhood comprised of approximately 112 above-market boutique flats and town homes on a 5-acre site at the northeast corner of Schilling Boulevard and Winchester Boulevard. Historical Concepts of Atlanta, in association with Mitch Hall, designed the project with an architectural style reminiscent of Old Town, Alexandria. The project features an urban design approach where buildings are pulled closer to the street, which frames and strengthens the project’s formal public realm. The Carrington also includes ground floor corner retail ideally suited for a coffee shop or delicatessen, which will provide a unique amenity and gathering place for residents. A groundbreaking is anticipated this winter.
Makowsky, Ringel & Greenberg is developing The Signature at Schilling Farms, a new 250-unit luxury apartment community located on an 18-acre site on Winchester Boulevard just west of Schilling Boulevard. This large project, designed by Fleming/Associates/Architects, combines contemporary open floor plans, sophisticated materials, and historically inspired details, all of which complement the design aesthetic of Schilling Farms.
Although unique, both of these new residential communities at Schilling Farms offer a mix of townhomes and one, two, and three-bedroom apartments with gated security, garages, balconies, community pools, fitness centers, common green spaces, and lush landscaping.
Ground was broken this summer and construction has commenced on a new $8 million, 45,000-square-foot Class A office headquarters building for MCR Safety on Schilling Boulevard. MCR Safety manufactures products under the brand names Memphis Glove, Crews Glasses, and River City Garment. MCR’s offices will include expanded facilities for training, product showrooms, and a conference center. The two-story brick and cast stone veneer building with 176 parking spaces should be complete in the summer of 2013.
