I disagree. No city planner looks at a wonderfully planned city and says "this is badly planned because only one developer was involved."

Do you have examples of a wonderfully planned city that only involved one developer though? meaning one person who financed and built all the buildings, planned for all the parking, brought in all the stores, etc?

If General Oglethorpe were around today folks on City Data would be criticizing him for laying out these bogus "squares" in the midst of a mosquito ridden swamp. Everybody knows people are not going to sail all the way across an ocean to live in some made-up city in the middle of nowhere.

Bodker said Johns Creek will use a national, multi-discipline team of consultants to create The District.
"This is not developer driven," he said. "This is a design-first and then attract the developers to build."
This won't be handled by a single developer, either.

It's the same with Midtown, Buckhead and Perimeter. They laid out long term plans which have been (and continue to be) implemented over the decades by scores of separate developers.

Shut up. I love Oglethorpe's squares.


Also - real brick - not brick façade. And no surface parking lots and plenty of greenspace.

Just a reminder for some that may not have been here for long....Atlantic Station replaced a steel mill.

I think it's aging pretty well, and it's still not complete.

With this type of Avalon/quasi Atlantic Station-like projects, what's the likelihood and timeline like? Is it a done deal? How many years away is it?

I'm moving to Roswell this summer, mainly because it offers more amenities and nightlife than Johns Creek, plus "easier and closer" access to Cobb/I-75 and Midtown/Buckhead/Downtown. This type of development alongside Canton St and Avalon would open up more live and play opportunities within 5 miles of my preferred neighborhood, so this is music to my ears.

Thank you for this info

I actually can respect this plan and hope they can pull it off. It has the potential to be something pretty huge.

Does anyone know off the top of their head if this area is anywhere near a rail line? It would be a good reason to connect the City with the Northern burbs with commuter rail.
