A long-anticipated but seemingly stunted mixed-use development near Interstate 285 might just get off the ground yet.
It appears to be the most convincing step yet that the potentially 42-acre project, which has been teased for more than a decade, could materialize.
The latest plans call for some $2 billion in development across the street from the Dunwoody MARTA Station and catty-corner to Dunwoody’s massive State Farm campus.
That would bring a roughly 8 million-square-foot mixed-use destination, comprised of 400,000 square feet of restaurants and retail, 635,000 square feet of high-end office space, 1,500 apartments, and a 400-key hotel.
Plus, if all goes according to plan, a public park.
The first phase of the project, though, would create four new urban-style blocks with a pedestrian-friendly internal street grid, as well as 600 residences and 200,000 square feet of retail space.
Architecture firm Dwell Design Studios is working on the retail and residential components.
The news comes as interest in transit-oriented development in metro Atlanta keeps heating up.
Dunwoody officials told Reporter Newspapers the development team could break ground on the colossal project by the end of this year, or in early 2020.
