1. Lack of geographic and infrastructure parallels. Forsyth and Coweta both connect directly Fulton via a major highway (Cherokee doesn't) and Newnan / Cumming are both equally the same distance from downtown Atlanta. Also, Newnan's commercial cluster along Bullsboro is also more identical to what's in Cumming along Highway 20 than what's in Cherokee (Coweta also doesn't have an outlet mall).

2. At a lower population threshold, Coweta is already wealthier than Cherokee County. With continued strong population migration from Fayette County via. folks who seek the cheaper new construction homes, Coweta's demographics will only continue to improve (I.E. Senoia was recently named the wealthiest smaller city in GA). This is exactly what happened in Forsyth as well, as people moved further out from North Fulton.

Now obviously Coweta of 2018 isn't an exact comparison with Forsyth of 2018. Same can be said about the Henry County and East Cobb comparison if we want to get picky (although personally, I think Henry is more like Gwinnett, with it being almost entirely a bedroom community, on the verge of becoming majority minority and with all of the warehousing facilities, than Cobb), but Coweta is clearly experiencing similar growth patterns as Forsyth did and is about in the same position it was 20 years ago. I suspect Forsyth's schools weren't the best of the best either in 1998, and that can be a lagging indicator in terms of a community's heallth and future potential.
The Golden 155 Corridor of Henry County could also be the "Parkview-Brookwood of the South Metro."

Fischer's Crossing could also be the location of a Whole Foods.


A Trader Joe's can directly in PTC.

True.

The Village Square at Newnan Crossing development was also looking for a grocery tenant (since Lidl backed out), so a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's could work there too.

Construction underway at Costco - The Newnan Times-Herald

Construction underway at Costco

Quote:
Construction for a new Costco store at Sharpsburg’s Fischer Crossing area is officially underway.

The construction company was recently issued a land disturbance permit two weeks ago and hopes to be open by August, according to Coweta County Community Development Assistant Director Angela White.

The newest Costco location will be constructed directly across from Sam’s Club along Fischer Road and will total 156,805 sq. ft.

The 5.26-acre property, located at the northeast corner of Ga. Highway 34 and Fischer Road, will also feature a Kaiser Permanente.

Costco is a membership warehouse store, similar to Sam’s Club. The closest Costco to Coweta is in Morrow.

The Costco at Fischer Crossings will become Coweta’s third membership warehouse, joining Sam’s and BJ’s Wholesale Club.

The Fischer Crossings property was originally rezoned in 2006, but sat vacant for many years, until NCG Cinemas was built in 2011. A Wendy’s fast food restaurant was added to the property in 2017.

Fischer Crossings was once envisioned as a three-corner development. Another developer bought the northwest corner and built the Sam’s Club, which opened in early 2011. The third corner has gone through various ownership changes. Part of the third corner property was proposed for a medical office and retail development in 2016.

Pretty far away from the interstate.

Welcome to the Southside. It seems to be in a good location to feed off both counties.

Yes, way too much non-residential development in Fayette County to be an East Cobb.


The pristine 155 Corridor is the East Cobb of the South (Metro).

I think you meant “due south of Coweta” ... and Meriwether is basically like Appalachia in middle Georgia

Ooops, I did mean Coweta. Yep, with Pine Mountain running across the southern end, there is even a mountainous feel in some parts.
