Wasting no time, construction at the former One CityPlace site in Buckhead is barreling ahead in the new year. In a little more than a month, work has shifted from land clearing to grading in preparation for roads and new buildings. As orange construction fences surrounded the site, Curbed went aerial to get a glimpse. Drainage pipes are being installed, regrading is almost complete, and with permits all lined up, it seems likely foundation work for both parcels A and D of the AMLI-driven development will soon commence. Concrete has already been poured for a park that will sit between Roxboro Road and the extension of Lakeside Drive to Wright Avenue.
Rumor has it the park will be ready by summer, though the surrounding parcels are likely to be construction sites for a while. In late December, the northeast corner of the original site for One CityPlace, under an acre of land, was sold off. Seemingly, AMLI won't be the only new kid on the block in the near future. Logic says the neighborhood of predominantly apartment and condo buildings will benefit from a renewed street connection to East Paces Ferry Road and the community park space.
