Franklin Street has been selected to handle retail leasing for Vickers, a mixed-use project on thriving Canton Street in Roswell, Ga. The leasing team, led by Reid Mason, director of retail leasing, and Leigh Anne McGarry, leasing associate, are actively seeking chef-driven restaurants, regional boutique retailers and fitness concepts for the project, which is set to open in December.
“This project is one of the last opportunities for businesses to find space on walkable, bustling Canton Street in Roswell,” said Mason. “We’re excited to merchandise this space to fit the active street life surrounding it, and add even more great businesses to this community, in particular those that will fit the active, stylish lifestyle of both current and future neighborhood residents.”
Canton Street is the cultural heart of Historic Roswell, an affluent suburb north of Atlanta. With dozens of local shops, restaurants and businesses, it’s a high-energy locale in high demand for both commercial and residential uses. The three-level Vickers project will add 6,800 square feet of retail including a restaurant with outdoor patio space to the district, and 79 new one, two and three-bedroom residential units.
“The mix of apartments over street-level retail will not only maintain but also bolster the current energy and vibrancy of Canton Street,” added McGarry. “We’re looking at restaurants that will fit seamlessly into the fabric of Historic Roswell, and targeting serene yoga and Pilates studio concepts to give residents an option for boutique fitness without disturbing their daily life.”
Construction is underway on Vickers, which will be the first mixed-use project on Canton Street, an exclusive address thanks to the neighborhood’s busy event schedule and stellar roster of eateries and shops, including a craft brewery and weekly farmers market. To add further value for tenants, Vickers will feature a dedicated rideshare drop-off station.
