The northward march of office-anchored mixed-use development is continuing along the Ga. Highway 400 corridor with the announcement of an eight-acre offering at Windward Parkway.

Bisnow reports that development trio KDC, Worthington Hyde Partners, and Transwestern—the team responsible for the large new State Farm project at Perimeter Center—have sights set on a substantial development in Alpharetta.

Plans call for two office towers, a 249-room Hilton Hotel, 200 condos, nearly 200 townhomes, and more than 30,000 square feet of retail space. The project is proposed on a large wooded tract of land.

The $400-million project would rise adjacent to the Windward Parkway MARTA Park-and-Ride, making a strong case for the continued investment in transit-oriented developments along the potential right-of-way of a future Red Line extension (which has been discussed for years).

If built as envisioned, the two office towers would bring 500,000 square feet of space to the area. KDC Regional VP Alex Chambers told Bisnow “the market is prime for build-to-suit development and interest is strong.”

It’s unclear what companies have expressed interest in the project, and the timeline will hinge on securing a future tenant.
