The City of Woodstock today announced plans for Woodstock City Center, an additional 3.5-acre mixed-use district added to the existing city center site planned for the heart of downtown Woodstock.
The press release also stated that the last piece of land needed to move forward with development is under contract. Morgan’s Ace Hardware, a Woodstock staple for over 40 years, will be relocated to another location near downtown to create the assemblage needed to develop City Center.
Mike Morgan of Morgan’s Ace Hardware said:
“After looking at options for my property over the last several years, I am pleased that the City has stepped forward to lead redevelopment of the project which will fit with the overall character of downtown Woodstock. It’s also great that the City has agreed to help me with the relocation of our business to a place that will allow easier access for our customers. I am excited that our store will be able to continue to serve our customers and the community for many years to come”.
The property will be developed by Morris & Fellows, the firm behind the successful Woodstock Downtownproject and Alpharetta City Center, among others. The city also added that in addition to the much needed parking, the development of this piece of property would allow for much-needed improvements to the intersection of East Main Street and Arnold Mill Road at Main Street and additional pedestrian connectivity in the Arnold Mill corridor.
Plans tentatively will allow for additional retail, restaurants, a boutique hotel and professional space.
