Exceedingly Grand Openings

New, 1 comment

The four-day, extra-gigantic, super-bonanza-palooza that is Avalon's grand opening begins this Thursday, and the AJC pays a visit in advance (paywall alert), offering this observation of a $600 million development covering 86 acres: "It offers a 'town center' feel with broad sidewalks to make it easier to walk from store to store, parking garages set away from stores to encourage pedestrian traffic and pocket parks and performance areas for community events or taking in the sunshine." In the article, one expert wonders if Avalon hasn't overestimated the project's affordability, with some homes costing more than $1 million and apartments up to $5,000 per month. Waiting lists might discredit that logic, though. [Atlanta Journal-Constitution]
