Major Retail Planned at Glenwood
Plans have been filed for a large retail project at 800 Glenwood Ave.
It sounds like a large shopping center could be planned for the Glenwood Avenue area, but it’s not clear if Wal-Mart would be located there, according to reports by Atlanta Business Chronicle.
Fuqua Development has filed plans with the city for a retail development at 800 Glenwood Ave. It would have a 155,000-square-foot retail anchor and 40,000 square feet of neighborhood-scale retail, according to the city's website.
A rendering by Fuqua shows it will be called Glenwood Place and will have 170,000 square feet of retail fronting Glenwood Avenue and Bill Kennedy Way.
Several readers have contacted Patch, saying they think that Wal-Mart plans to put a store here.
Fuqua is already planning a $90 million mixed-use development in Buckhead anchored by Wal-Mart, Atlanta Business Chronicle reported. That store would be almost the same size as the anchor at Glenwood. The Atlanta City Council has not taken action on a rezoning requets for the project.
The Glenwood site is owned by Williams Bros. Concrete Inc., according to the city's website.
Jeff Fuqua, owner of Fuqua Development, is known for some of Atlanta’s "live, work, play" complexes, including Town Brookhaven.
