The second phase of Avalon—Alpharetta’s mega mixed-use development, designed to bring a slice of urbanity to the heart of suburbia—has officially opened.
Boulevard East, as the phase is known, features new residences, offices, retail, and restaurants.
Along with 224,000 square feet of Class A office space anchored by Microsoft, 276 new apartments and 88,000 square feet of retail space—with restaurants including intown favorites such as Hop City and Spotted Trotter—have joined the already bustling district.
Boulevard East doubles Avalon’s size and triples the project’s density, with 20 new restaurants and retailers.
More than 3,000 parking spaces have been added to accommodate those suburbanites dropping in to enjoy the fun. The district previously offered 2,400 other parking spaces.
Still to come is a $112-million conference center, Hotel Avalon, and other amenities to cater to large events and meetings. Those are expected to open next January.
While the development was sold last year to an international real estate investment group, Avalon was the brainchild of North American Properties.
