From Emory Report re: mixed residential/commercial development on Clifton Road: Housing, dining, retail options under way on Clifton Road By David Payne. Construction officially kicked off this month on Emory Point, a mixed-use project across from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control on Clifton Road that includes street-level shops, restaurants and residential units. The project is being developed by Cousins Properties. The first phase of Emory Point will feature 80,000 square feet of retail space and 443 luxury apartments. An announcement regarding the retail tenants is expected this fall, and pre-leasing for the apartments, managed by Gables Residential, will begin next spring. This phase of the development is expected to open in the fall of 2012. Future phases are anticipated, which may include a mix of apartments and condominiums and additional retail. Read more.
The following is a message from Betty Willis, Executive Director of the Clifton Community Partnership
Dear Clifton Corridor Neighbor:
This time next year, voters throughout Georgia will be going to the polls to vote on the Transportation Investment Act (TIA) referendum which would allow for a special one cent sales tax to pay for transportation projects, specific to regions in which the tax is collected. A number of Atlanta leaders have likened this unprecedented opportunity to transform the region’s transportation system and the resulting economic development benefits, to Atlanta hosting the 1996 summer Olympics. Now is the time for you to have a voice in Atlanta’s future and to help ensure the quality of life you want and deserve. I write to urge your participation in this critically important process.
