One of City Council’s adopted priorities is North End Redevelopment, with goals to:

  • Encourage reinvestment along Roswell Road in the north end of Sandy Springs, and
  • Enhance the quality and variety of housing, retail and amenities in the area and to improve the quality of life for all Sandy Springs residents.

Conceptual Plans
The City awarded a contract to TSW Design to develop conceptual plans on four focus properties in the North End. These sites were chosen for their access to Roswell Road and their size, which is large enough to attract potential mixed use opportunities.

  • Big Lots Center (7300 Roswell Road)
  • Northridge Shopping Center (8331-8371 Roswell Road)
  • Loehmann’s Plaza (8610 Roswell Road)
  • North River Shopping Center (8765-8897 Roswell Road)

TSW created three conceptual master plans for each of the four focus properties. Each plan includes economic analysis based on market conditions, and considers the financial feasibility of including how to add additional households within the district.

You can view the completed plans and report .


North End Revitalization Plan Public Input Meetings:

North End Revitalization Advisory Committee
The North End Revitalization Advisory Committee was nominated by the mayor and approved by the city council. The primary work of this committee is to attend public meetings related to the River Access and Conceptual Plans projects, listen to the community’s input and ensure that the community input is taken into account throughout the plan development process. They will provide input in committee meetings with City staff and consultants, as well as provide comments on draft recommendations from the consultant. They will also help city staff with community outreach. Meeting agendas will be posted and summaries will be available online.

Members are residents and business owners in the North End.
