PROJECT RENAISSANCE – A NEW GEORGETOWN
The City invested considerable time in exploring the strategy outlined by the Master Plans for the 16-acre parcel as well as a 19-acre property (the former Emory Hospital site on North Shallowford) which the City has under contract. A concept was discussed for potentially mixing parks, civic space and private sector development (both low density owner occupied residential and neighborhood commercial) to fully utilize the total 35 acres of both properties. The City created Project Renaissance as a catalytic public private partnership designed to ignite the redevelopment of the Georgetown area.
The City of
Dunwoody will host an open house to gather feedback on a rendering for
the 5-acre park to be located at the corner of North Shallowford Road
and Pernoshal Court. The park is part of the 19-acre property in the
City’s on-going Project Renaissance redevelopment initiative. The park
concept is based on desirable park elements as brainstormed by the
community in the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Master Plan as well
as meetings and a charette held September 2012. Key features of this
5-acre park include an amphitheater with terraced seating, two
playgrounds, a multi-purpose sport court, and passive recreation and
