Emory Point mixed-use development to boast 440 apartments and 82,000 square feet of retail
UPDATE (July 19, 2011): Construction begins on $250 million Emory Point
Cousins Properties Inc. and Gables Residential will break ground on Emory Point in June, according to Larry Gellerstedt, Cousins Properties' chief executive officer. Gellerstedt recently discussed the mixed-use development during the Bisnow Atlanta's "State of the Market" event.
Plans for the project on Clifton Road near Emory University were introduced in 2008, but it was delayed due to the economy.
Officials hope the development will house several local restaurants and boutiques. There is 82,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space (22 units), according to the development's retail leasing map.
Cousins Properties is leading the development of Emory Point with Gables Residential developing the apartment homes, 440 in total.
