Cumberland/Galleria experiencing development surge

Recommended Posts

From GlobeSt.com www.globest.com/news/atlanta

Cobb county just approved two side by side mixed use developments.... T. I. Riverwood proposes 646 high-rise condos and 34,000 sf of retail and Regent Riverwood would have 210 condominium homes, 21,500 sf of bank and restaurant space, 500,000 sf of high-rise office product and an eight-story hotel.

And lists some number for whats planned for the area

1.5 million sf of new office

87,500 sf of retail

4,315 condominium homes

880 townhomes

I realize this is a suburban "edge city" but at least there is a lot of residential so that more people can live close to where they work and hopefully it will become dense enough to make mass transit in the area more viable.

This is very good news to hear.

I was very shocked to hear of the decline of Cumberland Mall over the years....especially when it's in the shadows of such a healthy edge-city. The new influx of residential highrise will definitely do wonders for the area. It is also served by the CCT so one could potentially ride a bus to downtown and really only have to make one system change at the Marta Art Centers Station.

I wonder whatever happended to Park Vinings?
