Revitalization of North Point Mall

Alpharetta City Council voted Monday night to forever change the North Point Mall per the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The plan centers on replacing asphalt with 4 acres of green space and redeveloping the space formerly occupied by Sears into a vibrant, mixed-use environment.

Council members approved rezoning 83 acres and allowing a 24,000-square-foot freestanding development with apartments and retail on the site of what used to be the Sears.

The housing at North Point will have 175 one-bedroom apartments between 700 and 900 square feet starting at $1,400 a month and 125 two-bedroom units ranging from 1,050 to 1,250 square feet for a monthly cost of $1,900.

Developers are also changing the inside of the mall by expanding the playground from the current play area just under 2,000 square feet to 7,000 square feet with separate, age-appropriate play spaces.
