Kennesaw Crossing Shopping Center to be Demolished & Revitalized

Kennesaw Crossing shopping center is set to be bought, booted and demolished to make way for a $65 million mixed-use development according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. 

The popular dance hall, Electric Cowboy and a picker’s delight Big Shanty Antiques are currently located in that shopping center and set to be demolished in two years. The Hooters restaurant in that development will be retained according to the Marietta Daily Journal. 

In a direct message on our Facebook page, Big Shanty Antiques said:

It is still over a year away before anything will happen. When we find a place we will let everyone know.

Kennesaw’s City Council unanimously approved the zoning and variances required to start the project on June 18, said Darryl Simmons, the city’s planning and zoning administrator.

The proposed development would have a 140-room hotel, two office condo buildings of 9,750 square feet, about 22,000 square feet of retail space and 274 apartments with monthly rents between $1,000 and $3,000, according to plans Varner Developers filed with the city.
