Avalon Mixed Use Project
The long awaited Avalon opened on October 30th. The $600 million mixed used project is located in Alpharetta on Old Milton and Ga. 400. The acreage on Old Milton became a victim of the real estate downturn and ultimate collapse. The property went into foreclosure. Drivers on Milton for years saw red clay dirt, weeds, and an unfinished cement form.
Today, it is a striking collection of retail stores, offices, residential living space, restaurants, a 12-theatre cinema, common areas with seating, fountains, and parking. It offers a place to spend your Saturday afternoon and evening, shopping, dining out, entertainment. Avalon bring that ‘Main Street” feeling to the suburbs.
Avalon is not complete, and has in its future plans more residences, retail, restaurants, possibly an office tower and a luxury hotel. Talks are in the making with the city of Alpharetta to include through a joint venture a conference center.
