From an aesthetic standpoint, big changes could be in store for one of Buckhead’s main shopping corridors.

A project that would redesign and combine several storefronts in the 3000 block of Roswell Road into a single showroom space is scheduled to come before Buckhead’s SPI-9 Development Review Committee during its monthly meeting Wednesday.

Plans submitted by Fathom Architecture principal Kevin Plenge show modifications to both the front and back of commercial spaces along a row of mostly vacant storefronts that face Charlie Loudermilk Park at 3084 Roswell Road.

Formerly home to Peachtree Bikes and Temmer marble’s “slab gallery,” among other businesses, the retail strip today houses quartz dealer Cambria and One on One Matchmaking, described as an “ultra-exclusive, boutique matchmaking service for single clients.”

According to Fathom’s drawings, the spaces will be combined for a large Construction Resources showroom called CR Design Studio.

Construction Resources, which operates a smaller showroom along the retail strip in question now, forecasts the studio will open later this year on its website.

The larger, modernized space “will offer designers, architects, and retail customers everything that Construction Resources has to offer from luxury countertops, smart appliances, high-end lighting, and so much more,” reads a description. “[The studio] is prominently positioned amongst high-end shops and designer showrooms for you to shop the best building products in town.”

We’ve reached out to Fathom reps for a timeline on when construction might move forward, and we’ll post any additional information that comes.

Elsewhere in Atlanta, Fathom has designed a remake of Ford Fry’s longtime King + Duke restaurant space at 3060 Peachtree Road in Buckhead, and in Capitol View, a modular-built residential project a few blocks from the BeltLine’s Southside Trail.
