The property’s owner, Equity One Properties, is promising a “new urban oasis.” Judging by the renderings, they plan to deliver on that: The development is dense, walkable, close to Buckhead MARTA rail station, parking is out of sight, and there will be space for “necessity-driven” retail – A stark contrast to the property’s current shopping plaza swimming in an ocean of parking.

The new development will be a “classic example of 21st century live, work, play mixed-use real estate offering a synergistic combination of upscale and necessity-driven retail, state of the art office space, and high-end residences for Buckhead’s increasingly metropolitan population.”

Equity One Properties hopes that through the mixed-use project, they can leverage Buckhead’s supposed reputation as the “Beverly Hills of the South.”

The supermarket is affectionately named Disco Kroger, a nod to the Limelight, a famous club that once occupied the space next door – currently the home of Binder’s Art Supply And Frames.

This isn’t the only Kroger in town getting an extreme makeover: Beltline/Murder Kroger on Ponce De Leon Avenue will be razed to make way for 725 Ponce, a mixed use development featuring an “urban prototype” Kroger, class-A loft office space, and Beltline access.

Do you think the development will be an urban oasis for all? Are you happy with the direction Kroger is headed in Atlanta? Tell us below…

Limelight or Rupert’s? I loved Rupert’s live band and the party atmosphere from the early 90s. Maybe Limelight was before my time.

I grew up here back in the 1970’s and there are a lot of things in the city that the 1970’s is still sending e-mails and leaving calls asking for their things back, mainly on the south side of town

Do any developers build mid price residences? I always am reading the phrase “high-end” in articles about building in Atlanta.
