Even though many of these are chains, Scoop is still very excited to see new retail shops & restaurants come OTP. We love growth for both the economy and the convenience, and we really love when independent restaurants come from Atlanta to OTP.

Also, more than 800 residents will be able to call Avalon home. Approximately half will live in 250 luxury rental units located in four stories above retail with average rents of $1,400. The remainder will own a home in Avalon’s enclave of 101 single-family “courtyard style” residences.

There will be office space and a 300-room, four star hotel as well as a 175-room boutique hotel for both executive and leisure travelers. Follow Avalon on Facebook to find out the latest news. The grand opening may be at the end of 2014 or the beginning of 2015, and we can’t wait!
