Details Emerge For ‘Restaurant-Driven’ Development The Park at Georgetown

The 2.5-acre site overlooks Georgetown Park and is situated within Dunwoody Green, a new JW Homes development.

Plans to develop The Park at Georgetown in Dunwoody are moving forward.

Crim & Associates in February acquired the future home for the project—a 2.5-acre site that overlooks Georgetown Park—for $900,000 where 21,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space will be constructed.

“The City will allow us to obtain an open container permit for the development” so The Park at Georgetown would be a “great spot for a brewery/brewpub/taproom,” Archie C. Wanamaker, an associate broker at Crim, Wednesday told What Now Atlanta in an email.

Crim also plans to activate the park, using the space for events like concerts and restaurant tastings, he said.

The Park at Georgetown is situated at the eastern-edge of Dunwoody Green, a new JW Homes development, at 4475 Pointe Place Ave.

“The Park at Georgetown reflects the new urbanism that has been unfolding in places like Canton Street in Roswell, downtown Woodstock, and Alpharetta City Center,” according to the project’s marketing materials.

“This development has the distinctive opportunity to provide an old-world experience within the dynamic Dunwoody market.”

Proposed delivery of the spaces is set for quarter four of 2019.

  1. This is a truly bizarre location for an offering of this nature. It is completely internal to a neighborhood on a couple of tertiary streets, that dead end within the subdivision. It is not on any of the higher traffic, higher visibility “through streets,” in Dunwoody, such as Mt. Vernon, Chamblee Dunwoody, North Shallowford or North Peachtree. In the unlikely event that it gets commercial traction and becomes popular, it could easily be a nuisance to the residents of this little neighborhood. If it fails to get traction, it could be a place for people to drink by the park.

  2. A space like this is long overdue in the area. It will be nice to nit have to battle traffic on a Friday evening just to find a nice place for dinner.

  3. This could be a good or bad thing. I live in this neighborhood and I’m already seeing traffic doubled since I’ve moved here 10 years ago. At least, I would be able to walk to such a space but it’s also nice to maintain green space and not have every speck of land covered by concrete. There are loads of other places that are off bigger roads that can support such a thing. Plus, if all the shops that end up opening there are larger chains, then the uniqueness of it disappears. I think if I owned one of those houses there I would not want to have all that stuff clogging up my neighborhood. There are enough places that one could easily walk to to get food or drink. What they should have done is renovate some of the shops and strip centers along North Shallowford and made them more user-friendly.

  4. I love this idea. There’s enough green space within the park at Pernoshal. A nice brewpub and some unique specialty stores would be ideal. The adjacent neighborhood is not a gated community, so this will be accessible by everyone living close by. I can’t wait for this to happen.
