This dramatic 22-acre development revitalizes Alpharetta’s historic downtown with a vibrant blend of commercial, residential, and community uses. The pedestrian and family-friendly environment includes a City Hall building, municipal parking deck, five-acre public park/green space, town square, pocket parks, and five development sites for future retail spaces.
Designed with traditional column and red brick, the 53,000-SF City Hall houses city departments and offices on the ground, second, and third floors. The building’s design is similar to that of historic Southern municipal buildings, creating an impressive focal point for the City Center. A striking oval lobby, 145-seat Council Chamber, permanent exhibit of Alpharetta’s history, and event rooms create a center that will give back to the community for years to come.
The 140,495 SF, 450-space municipal parking garage provides ample support to the City Center. Mirroring the brick and limestone of the City Hall building, the five-story precast parking deck blends seamlessly with the traditional, historic feel to the area.
The City Center with its interconnecting streets, the promise of retail and restaurants, and the potential for special events create a locale unique to Alpharetta. Construction is performed under a CM at-Risk approach along with preconstruction consulting.
