The Pattillos made their fortune in industrial buildings but they are no strangers to the city. Dan Pattillo was chairman of MARTA and one of the driving forces in getting it going.

NEXUS BuHi

Nexus will be a dynamic mixed-use walkable community with specialty retail, multi-cultural restaurants, office, multi-family, senior living and a select service hotel. Situated on 13 acres with a central pedestrian friendly promenade, Nexus will have gardens, water features, arts and dramatic lighting elements.















THE RISE TUCKER

The 88 acre site features a Monet’s Water Lily Pond recreation area with walking trails, an urban garden, a pedestrian friendly central lawn, Smoke Rise Elementary School, Primrose Schools’ child care as well as specialty retail and office suites, senior living, single family homes, townhomes and apartments.











SUGAR HILL TOWN CENTER

A partnership, led by Macauley Investments, is working on a mixed-use project across Broad Street from Sugar Hill City Hall and the E-Center site. The project will bring online upscale townhomes, apartments and ground-floor retail. The development will continue the trend of the exciting growth that is taking place within the City center.

Those first 2 are really ambitious projects. I especially like the Tucker project. And if they can plan something like this on Buford Highway, it should remove all doubt that the suburban Kroger on Northside drive is nothing but a unqualified disaster for this city.

I consider myself a fairly competent parallel parker, but man I would not enjoy backing up into the spots next to that dropoff! Even with the barrier!

Solid project, though. Nexus would be a huge compliment to the area and would be nice to see this developed along with the GM plant redevelopment. Would be a rapidly urbanizing area in what is considered a very dangerous area for pedestrians. I think it also helps support the case for the 285 HRT between Cumberland to Doraville. I believe the next decade of development will lead how our HRT patterns will follow, as land development patterns could change vastly over the next few years.

I have to admit, it looks pretty cool to me.

But I'm certainly no arbiter of style.

A friend moved to Sugar Hill, back in April. She offered a tour of the under construction downtown area and I took several photographs. She said it was something I had to see, since I like construction. It was my first look at what they are doing. The City Hall has a post office, there is a walk-through water feature, an amphitheatre, a small lake with a path around it, and a park across from City Hall. They had a few historic items... I'm trying to remember if they were connected to gold mining? One is in front of City Hall and the other is in a roundabout. And, of course, there was the construction! I could see what appears to be a performing arts center and another massive building beside it. They also had a nice entrance sign and grading on that corner site? I should post some of those photographs.

I need to take an updated photograph of the hotel at Avalon, in Alpharetta. The office building is completed and open. The hotel is being clad and appears to have a spire? It could be something temporary that is construction related?

The hotel at Avalon does have a spire. I don't remember seeing a spire in the renderings?

Over the past few weeks, I noticed a tower crane in the trees. I'm guessing it's located around Kimball Bridge Road and Northwinds Parkway? You can see it from 400 and you can also see it from Haynes Bridge Road at Northwinds Parkway.

Avalon Update:
I took a photograph over the weekend, showing the hotel spire and current progress on the hotel. As someone who lives in the area and shops/visits restaurants in this area, I can already tell Avalon is having a impact on the North Point Mall area.

Look closely and you can see the spire:

Downtown Sugar Hill:
A friend living in Sugar Hill said they have a tall crane in their downtown. She didn't say what type of crane or what it is working on?
