The latest issue of Georgia Trend magazine highlighted the rise and subsequent popularity of mixed-use developments in the North Fulton area as more and more professionals move to the suburbs for its exceptional quality of life.

“We’ve got amenities that no other communities have,” Executive Director of Roswell Inc Steve Stroud said. “That continues to draw people to all of North Fulton.”Georgia Trend Oct. 2015

The piece also lauded Lennar’s Roswell City Walk, a luxury multi-family complex slated for completion by the end of 2015. Though construction is not yet finished, more than half of the units have already been leased. Due to it’s high quality construction and proximity to local amenities such as the shops and restaurants of the historic district, the complex is a hit with Millennials and retirees alike.

“The City Walk project is a great example of the trend we’re seeing around Metro-Atlanta, and that is pockets of density,” Stroud said. “It used to be a bad word in Roswell and North Fulton, but the demographic is showing that it’s people over 50 who want to downsize from the cul-de-sac and truly are renting. City Walk is leasing at the fastest pace of any complex in the country for Lennar.”

Stroud also pointed out that business victories in surrounding communities, such as Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Sandy Springs, are beneficial to the entire area and continue to draw highly skilled professionals as well as major employers, further improving the overall quality of life in North Fulton.
