Streets of Buckhead, a luxury mixed-use development from Ben Carter Properties, is scheduled to open this spring in Atlanta. Although, according to recent news reports, the project likely will be delayed due to funding issues.
Plans call for more than 500,000 square feet of retail space, 14 high-end restaurants, high-rise residences and a hotel. Retailers that have leased space within the development include Oscar de la Renta, Bottega Veneta, Etro and John Lobb.
The new John Lobb store will reside in a 900-sq.-ft. space next to the Hermès shop at the intersection of Buckhead Avenue and Bolling Way. In addition to shoes, Lobb will stock men’s accessories such as belts and small leather goods. A made-to-measure custom fit service will be available to clients.
Another multipurpose luxury center is awaiting it’s fate. Prospect Park in Alpharetta, Ga., was scheduled to open its doors this coming May, but a spokesperson from the project’s developer, Thomas Enterprises, confirmed that the center has been delayed with no firm opening date set.
Once completed, Prospect Park is slated to feature 750,000 square feet of retail space, a hotel, luxury condos, multiple high-end restaurants, 250,000 square feet of office space and a 75,000-sq.-ft. multiplex cinema. According to the spokesperson, negotiations with prospective tenants are under way for approximately 60 percent of the retail space.
