ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Thursday
is a big day for a major new development in Alpharetta. Avalon, an 86-acre mixed-use project just off GA 400 on Old Milton Parkway, will hold its grand opening.
The development features 65 retailers, 12 restaurants, 101 town homes and 250 apartments.
The project is anchored by a Regal Movie Theatre and a 48,000 square foot Whole Foods Supermarket.
Nine retailers and restaurants opening their doors at the Avalon are new to Georgia, while 17 others, like Vineyard Vines, are setting up shop outside of the perimeter for the first time.
