These days we’re focused on lots of development – new houses, new businesses, and new neighbors.

IMPORTANT NEWS AND UPDATES 

A Message From Our PHCA President - Jim Hardy 

Historically, this time of year is a time of sacrifice and of celebration. So far, 2020 has had a lot more sacrifice than celebration. With patience and optimism, we will have plenty of time for celebration when this pandemic has passed.

Your Civic Association is continuing to work with and for all of you. We are

helping get information out via social media and working with City representatives to keep projects moving. You may have noticed the new pedestrian crossing at Piedmont and Montgomery Ferry. While not perfect, it is a major improvement over what was there before. We’re continuing to work with City Departments and Council Member Jennifer Ide to improve that crosswalk.

Your Board is meeting for our regularly scheduled monthly meeting on April 7 toreview a Special Exception Zoning Variance request and other business. We’re holding a Virtual meeting to cooperate with social distancing guidelines, not just because of City orders, but because it’s the right thing to do to help mitigate this pandemic.

We appreciate you staying home, maintaining social distancing when you must go out, and wearing masks to protect others. We must all work together to get through this thing. We’re doing our part and really appreciate you doing yours.

Jim Hardy

Piedmont Heights Named in Top 7 of Best Neighborhoods in Atlanta 2020 


We always knew that our neighborhood was special, now the entire state knows it too! Thank you Curbed Atlanta for naming Piedmont Heights one of the best neighborhoods in Atlanta!Curbed Atlanta

THE DRAW: A feeling of being tucked away, in the middle of it all

SIMILAR NEIGHBORHOODS: Morningside-Lenox Park; Peachtree Hills

TYPES OF HOMES: High-dollar new construction; handsome brick townhomes; garden-style condos

An icicle-shaped neighborhood bounded by Piedmont Avenue, Interstate 85, and the former railroad line that cuts through Piedmont Park, Piedmont Heights is under-appreciated. This tony neighborhood is a segue between trendy Midtown and the old/new money of Buckhead, with enviable proximity to Piedmont Park and all the scuzzy wonders of Cheshire Bridge Road. Its roster of attractions includes venerable Smith’s Olde Bar and Ford Fry’s Little Rey, plus a stock of truly lovely, smaller houses that can be attained in the ballpark of $500,000.

There is history aplenty; Atlanta’s second-oldest home—the Liddell House, a classic, clapboard-sided antebellum farmhouse with a porte cochère—is located on Montgomery Ferry Road. But for all its aspirational residences and marquee location, not every Atlantan could point out Piedmont Heights on a map, which boosts the cachet.

Bonus: Piedmont Heights is getting its own Beltline segment—a stretch of the Northeast Trail, behind the neighborhood’s Ansley Mall—that launched construction last fall. The result should be a combination of Beltline and interstate access second only to West End and Reynoldstown. And locals know not to miss Grindhouse Killer Burgers, which opened its “flagship” location here on Piedmont Avenue in 2011.

Piedmont Heights mourns the loss of our beloved Jean Johnson who passed away quietly on February 4 th after a short illness. Jean moved to Piedmont Heights in 1972. She joined the Piedmont Heights Civic Association a few years later, and served on its Board of Directors for 35 years. She chaired and served on many committees and task forces, never seeking high post nor personal recognition. She was always the calm voice of experience and reason, never excited nor angry, led by example, and offered wise counsel. Her dedication to community extended far beyond our neighborhood. She served many years as Piedmont Heights’ representative to Neighborhood Planning Unit F, garnering much public recognition. In 2016 she received an Atlanta Planning Advisory Board Award for the City of Atlanta’s “Neighborhoods Matter” program.

Jean was at heart a teacher. Her professional career in Atlanta included three major educational organizations, the Southern Regional Education Board, the Southern Education Foundation, and the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, retiring in 2000. Jean never married but the many friends she made in Piedmont Heights became her loving family.

In 2013, to recognize her long service to our neighborhood, the PHCA Board created and awarded her the “Jean Johnson Award”, which since has been awarded annually to a PHCA Board Member for outstanding service. When asked about the highlights of her life, Jean responded without hesitation, friends made and her years of service to Piedmont Heights.

We thank Jean from the bottoms of our hearts for being such a good neighbor and wish her a fond farewell. We will sorely miss her but her spirit and example will always be with us.
