Cousins Properties, the developers of the Emory Point project, announced the first businesses to sign leases at the development, Monday.
CVS, Jos A. Bank, Marlow’s Tavern, Which Wich, Solar Dimensions and Carriage Cleaners, are the first businesses to sign leases at the mixed-use development located in the Clifton Corridor, adjacent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and in close proximity to Emory University and Emory Healthcare, according to a press release.
Larry Gellerstedt, Cousins’ President and CEO, estimates these Emory Point retailers will create nearly 600 jobs.
“From locally owned stores and restaurants to national chains, Emory Point will provide the trade area with a unique mix of upscale retail and restaurant options,” Gellerstedt said in the release.
Construction began in July on Phase I, the $100+ million phase of the project, which accounts for more than 80,000 square feet of retail space and 443 apartments.
Phase I is expected to be complete by fall 2012. The second and third phases of the project will be “developed according to market demand,” the release notes.
