Plans for Creating Central Business District Revealed at City's Open House
 
 The top photo is a current view of the shopping center where IHOP and Chick-fil-A are currently located. The second image is the architect's vision for a mixed-use development on the corner and includes a pedestrian bridge connecting to the adjacent shopping center.
The architect's vision for a utility easement on Technology Parkway: Transform the area into a walk and bike path and landscape portions of the center turn lanes which are often un-used.
Technology Park has a number of office buildings overlooking small lakes. The architect's rendering shows condominiums built next to an existing office building. The condominium complex overlooks a grassy area leading to the lake where residents can enjoy boating and walk along the trails on the water's edge. 
 
    Defining and creating a vision for a walkable, connected downtown core, and fashioning a community identity was the focus of a study the City launched earlier this year.
    The results you see here are architectual visions for enhancing the area of Peachtree Parkway between Medlock Bridge and Holcomb Bridge Roads. 
    Elements of the study included finding ways to improve problem traffic areas, ideas for redeveloping aging strip malls, ways to integrate pedestrian and bike paths within the business district and ideas for creating safe, efficient ways for foot traffic to cross Peachtree Parkway.

 City to Study Ways to Revitalize Holcomb Bridge Road Corridor

Holcomb Bridge Road, once a thriving and bustling area full of popular shops and restaurants, has become a heavily traffiked commuter corridor. City leaders, seeking ways to re-energize the roadway that is considered one of the gateways of the city, have announced plans to hire a planning and design firm to study and recommend ways to connect and enhance the area for both residents and businesses. 

"This is an important and vital part of the city," said Mayor Mike Mason. The plans will focus on ways to eliminate the divide that a major roadway such as Holcomb Bridge Road naturally creates. Plans will include creating pedestrian pathways and enhancing the corridor with landscaping, street furniture and other elements. Read more ...

City Unveils Plans for Town Center 

It’s taken nearly a year, but city leaders were finally able to reveal the plans for Peachtree Corners’ Town Center which is planned for the 20+ acres across from The Forum.

Atlanta-based developer Fuqua and the City began working on concept plans in late 2013 and on Monday, Oct. 27, at a UPCCA-sponsored event, shared the vision for the new development.

The plans call for a mixed use development with retail shops, restaurants, offices and townhomes, a two-acre green space, a place for a performing arts facility and enough parking to accommodate special events.

The renderings displayed are concept plans of what the Town Center will look like when complete. The plans feature several restaurants, including roof-top dining overlooking the Town Green, a cinema,  a clock tower, splash pool and band shell for outdoor concerts.

The community will be offered a chance for input at a public hearing. The timeline calls for construction to begin in late 2015 with a grand opening in mid-2017  Read more ...
