Folks in north Fulton County will soon have a new spot to live, shop, eat and workout.
Vickers, a mixed-use project currently under construction on Canton Street in Roswell, is set to open in December.
The company behind the development of the project, Miller Lowry Developments of Atlanta, recently selected a leasing agent for the commercial space. The agent – Franklin Street, an Atlanta real estate firm – is actively seeking chef-driven restaurants, local and regional boutique retailers and fitness concepts for the project.
“We’re excited to merchandise this space to fit the active street life surrounding it,” said Reid Mason, Franklin Street’s director of retail leasing. “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.”
The Vickers project was approved by Roswell’s city council in July 2015, and will include 79 residential homes along with 8,000 square feet of commercial space. The development will sit on the corner of Canton and Woodstock streets in Roswell, where an auto repair shop once operated a few years ago.
Many consider Canton Street to be the heart of Roswell’s historic district. The city’s new and free trolley service makes several stops along the it. Vickers is the first mixed-use project on the street.
“The mix of apartments over street-level retail will not only maintain, but also bolster the current energy and vibrancy of Canton Street,” said Leigh Anne McGarry, a leasing associate with Franklin Street.
McGarry added that Franklin Street is targeting restaurants that will “fit seamlessly into the fabric” of historic Roswell. The real estate firm is also seeking a yoga and Pilates studio for the project.
