Avalon Mixed-Use Development

Avalon Mixed-Use Development, Alpharetta, GA

Kimley-Horn provided civil engineering, project management, drainage and erosion control, and parking services for this 86-acre, mixed-use development in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Avalon is a $600 million, sustainably-designed mixed-use development located at the intersection of GA-400 and Old Milton Parkway. When completed, the 86-acre site will feature 526 luxury rental units, a 12-screen movie theater, 750,000 square feet of Class A office space, 570,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, and a 330-key boutique hotel with a convention center that boasts 47,000 square feet of meeting space.

In addition to these features, Monte Hewett Homes is planning to build 100+ single-family, courtyard-style homes, giving residents the opportunity to “Live in Avalon.” The development is also the state’s first Gigabit community, featuring a future-proof fiberhood with Internet connection speeds that are 100 times faster than what is currently on the market.
