Wow... Rock on Kennesaw. I don't think Kennesaw had much of a business district in the past. That was left to Marietta for the most part. Despite being close to the battlefield park, Kennesaw was probably always a little burg that was engulfed by "Atlanta" as it's metropolitan growth expanded.

It will be much more befitting a town of 33,000 or so.

That's a great point that Kennesaw a very small rural town that was engulfed or swallowed by the explosive growth of Atlanta's metropolitan area.

But when talking about the attractiveness of a small town/city like Kennesaw from an economic development standpoint, it's important to note that it is not just the 9.4 square-mile area inside of the city limits of Kennesaw with a population of about 32,000 residents that developers are attracted to.

It is the entire 44 square-mile area with a Kennesaw mailing address (the entire area of the Kennesaw 30152 and 30144 zip codes combined) that has a population of about 95,000 residents, as well as most of Northwestern Cobb County, that developers are attracted to....An area that includes the huge cluster of commercial and industrial development (near Town Center Mall and along US Highway 41 Cobb Parkway) as well as the very fast-growing campus of Kennesaw State University (a school which is reported to have the 3rd-highest enrollment of any college or university in Georgia).

Being a heavily-developed and heavily-populated area with a large and fast-growing university campus (KSU) with many retail and recreational amenities (Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield Park, Lake Allatoona, etc) located just north of the county seat of government and the largest city (Marietta) in a heavily-populated and very fast-growing county of 732,000 people (Cobb County), one can see how Kennesaw is a very attractive target of real estate developers.

All great points as usual. I think Kennesaw is underestimated, and many will be surprised in the next 10 years or so, if not sooner.
