Part 3 of my CYBOTL series will look at a narrow lot in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Atlanta. The lot was originally developed with a shotgun-style house, and it is also surrounded by similar houses. The lot currently is empty but could support very interesting architecture. Let’s take a look at 1004 McDaniel Street.
ATL, CYBOTL Lot 003: 1004 McDaniel Street
This lot, even with its narrow buildable area, can easily support a shotgun-style house in the vein of its neighbors. With the current R-4B zoning, the lot can support a house with up 2,100 square feet of total floor area, perfect for any family looking to build in the city. If a builder wanted to get adventurous, they could consider doing a vertical duplex on the site. With a use variance, a two-level apartment can be built on the site to house two families. All in all, there is very little red tape to deal with in order to use the site as-is. I can’t wait to see what someone does with 1004 McDaniel.
