Canton Street, the spine of Historic Roswell, is a booming strip of restaurants and retail spaces that draws in residents of the suburban community and greater metro area to eat, drink, and shop.
The success of the street in recent years has been measured in the increase in pedestrian traffic, which drove the City of Roswell to pilot a weekend shuttle service throughout downtown. And the area’s popularity is reflected in the escalating prices of recent home listings, which are comparable to many hot intown neighborhoods.
Now, construction is well underway on a project slated to bring even more retail and a dose of residents within walking (or staggering) distance of all the most popular places.
Vickers Historic Roswell, a mixed-use development by Franklin Street, is well underway at the northern end of Canton Street. Renderings have emerged that illustrate what Roswell dwellers can soon expect.
Designed by Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, the three-story project will include one-, two-, and three-bedroom rentals atop street-level retail. According to Reid Mason, who heads the leasing team, the project is “one of the last opportunities for businesses to find space on walkable, bustling Canton Street.”
The team aims to find “chef-driven restaurants, regional boutique retailers, and fitness concepts.”
Expect 79 residences and about 8,000 square feet of retail, including one corner restaurant slot with a patio.
Developers expect it all to deliver by Christmas.
