INFORMATION: In late 2019, the City hired a planning firm to develop conceptual designs on four properties in the northern half of the city (called the “North End”). These sites were chosen for their access to Roswell Road and their size, which are large enough to attract potential mixed use opportunities:
The scope of the North End Revitalization Plan included creating conceptual master plans for each of the four properties. Each plan included economic analysis based on market conditions, and considered the financial feasibility, including how to add additional households within the district, looking at a variety of housing types at a variety of price points. Additionally, the study looked at potential zoning changes for each property that would be necessary to make each concept more feasible that could translate into zoning code amendments.
The concept plans are intended to illustrate how the community’s vision for reimaging the North End can be realized through a variety of recommendations, uses, and intensities for the four shopping centers within the study area. The designs are not development proposals by the property owners, but rather illustrative concepts that might spur the highest and best uses of key properties in this redevelopment area.
