North End Redevelopment


Sandy Springs Hosted a Public Open House on North End Shopping Center Revitalization Plan Development Code Amendments at Lost Corner Preserve on Nov. 4

Following a multi-year planning and public input process, the City of Sandy Springs is proposing development code changes to guide future growth and implement the revitalization priorities articulated in the North End Revitalization Plan. The Open House provided the community with the opportunity to review the proposed Development Code changes and provide input. There was not a formal presentation, but City of Sandy Springs representatives were available to discuss the proposed amendments and answer questions.

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 .
