Brixmor Ribbon Cutting Celebration

By | News | No Comments

Earlier in 2018, we announced that Brixmor Property Group, one of country’s largest commercial retail leasing providers, relocated its regional office from Alpharetta to Roswell, bringing 50 jobs to the city.

Brixmor owns the retail center Holcomb Bridge Crossing. The company rightsized the center’s anchor, PGA TOUR Superstore, and converted 12,000 square feet of the property into office space for Brixmor’s new regional office.

In September, we celebrated Brixmor’s new space with a ribbon cutting. We’re excited to welcome Brixmor as a new corporate citizen and are honored to have been part of helping them andPGA TOUR Superstore collaborate to repurpose and utilize the big box retail space.

Gypsy Rose Music Coming to Roswell

By | News | No Comments

A new music venue, Gypsy Rose Music, will soon be coming to Roswell’s historic district. Located at 964 Alpharetta Street, in the building previously occupied by Classy Clutter, the eclectic music hall will host a variety of curated, original, live music and private events.

Founder and local resident, Brittany Crooms, is opening the music hall out of a passion for merging music, entertainment, and community. After relocating to Roswell almost a year ago, Brittany felt inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit and drive that Roswell business owners are known for, and through that, the idea for Gypsy Rose was conceived.

“As a community loving resident and passionate music lover, I began to crave somewhere where these two things collide,” said Brittany Crooms. “The more I talked to people, the more others seemed to want somewhere devoted to original live music with a vision similar to mine.”

“Roswell is regionally known for our strong hospitality industry, and with the recent growth of this sector, there’s been a growing need for live entertainment and event spaces,” said Steve Stroud executive director of Roswell Inc. “Gypsy Rose is satisfying two major markets while bringing a new dynamic to our popular Historic District.”

Gypsy Rose plans to be open to the public Wednesday through Sunday, host food trucks, and serve a selection of local and craft beers and cocktails to venue patrons. In addition to hosting music, Gypsy Rose plans to have live band karaoke and themed parties for patrons.

Crooms will serve as Gypsy Rose’s venue manager. She has secured a sales and marketing director, booking agent/sound engineer, beverage manager, and plans to hire seven to eight bartenders and four cocktail servers.

Roswell Trolley Launches Tracking App in Partnership with GPS Trackit

By | News | No Comments

In August, the Roswell Trolley unveiled a new app that allows trolley users to track both trolleys and their scheduled routes. Available in both the App Store and Google Play, now you can live track, monitor routes, and find trolley stops.

The app launched in partnership with a local Roswell business, GPS Trackit, which is a software product development company specializing in custom fleet management solutions that located its national headquarters in Roswell earlier this year. The Roswell Trolley connected with GPS Trackit after reading our news about the company locating in Roswell, and our team is excited both parties were able to collaborate on this exciting project.

The trolleys have been running since early April and allow both residents and visitors to ride to and from stops throughout Roswell at no cost. Both trolleys service the community Friday through Sunday from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. in partnership with Carl Black and Gate City Brewing Company.

The largest clay court tennis center in the nation—the Angela Krause Tennis, Pickleball and Fitness Center—may soon be making its home in Roswell, Georgia. The new, 135-court facility would be located on 60 acres of land in Big Creek Park, located off Old Alabama Road, through a partnership with the City of Roswell, which will be voted upon during the city council meeting on Monday, August 13, 2018.

If approved, the $60-70 million project would break ground in 2019, would happen in three phases, and would include more than 80 clay courts when finished, which is more than double the number of clay courts currently available in one location anywhere in the country. The facility would also feature traditional hard courts and grass courts, as well as a tournament-size, 24-court pickleball facility.
