Residents of Sandy Springs can ask questions about proposed changes to the city’s development code to support the North End revitalization plan at an open house on November 4.
City staff will answer questions from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at Lost Corner Preserve at 7300 Brandon Mill Road in Sandy Springs. No formal presentation will be made, but the public will be able to review the redevelopment proposals.
With input from an appointed task force, City Council and its consultants created the North End Revitalization Plan with conceptual master plans for four shopping centers. Market conditions were used to perform an economic analysis and determine the financial feasibility of each plan. The types of accommodation at various price levels have been taken into account.
The four shopping center sites used in the study included:
North River Village Shopping Center, 8765-8897 Roswell Road
River Springs Shopping Center (formerly Loehmann’s Plaza), 8610 Roswell Road
Northridge Shopping Center, 8331-8371 Roswell Road
North Springs Shopping Center (former Big Lots Center), 7300 Roswell Road
To make these proposals possible, the study suggested potential zoning changes that would be required for each of the properties.
The study aimed to show a path that developers could take to rearrange the four properties that would stimulate its best uses.
Information about the North End Revitalization Plan can be found on the city’s website.
