A 21-acre mixed-use development could soon be coming to Alpharetta, linking the city's new nostalgic downtown with Avalon. The announcement by Old Milton Holdings LLC marks the next phase of what could ultimately become a 515-acre "walkable district" in the northside suburb. The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that the development will include retail, office spaces and residences as well as a 4.5-acre park.
Billed as Old Milton Village, the project is the first step toward weaving together a cohesive environment of the older town center and the new developments of Alpharetta, according to the city's mayor David Belle Isle. John Wieland will develop the residential portion of the project, slated to be comprised of 21 single-family homes, 111 townhomes and 54 condos and flats. Beyond residential spaces, the development could include up to 25,000 square feet of retail space and an additional 12,000 square feet of offices.
Old Milton Village isn't the only project in the pipeline; the article includes details on other planned projects in the area, including the second and third phases of Avalon, set to kick off soon.
