[Note: The above rendering has been updated from one previously provided.]

An overhaul years in the making in Cascade Heights could soon come to fruition.

The Point at Cascade will consist of two buildings on a triangle-shaped parcel at the intersection of Cascade Road and Benjamin E. Mays Drive SW, according to Shea Embry, co-owner and developer of the project.

Construction is slated to begin in December on nearly 17,000 total square feet of retail and restaurant space that developers say will be fully occupied by May next year.

The names of the restaurants and stores occupying the space were not yet available.

Neighbors will discuss the project during a 6 p.m. meeting Aug. 15 at the site of one of the buildings: 2287 Cascade Road.

A southwest Atlanta community, Cascade Heights is home to Atlanta movers and shakers like former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin and former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young.

Cascade Heights traces its history back to the 1920s and prominent Atlanta landscape architect William L. Monroe, Sr.
