Imagine you’re driving towards Grandview from downtown. You pass The Summit up the hill on your left, and this 111-acre parcel of land is on your right. Easy access to everything while feeling like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Sweet.

Two Atlanta-based developers are behind the project

Novare Group and Batson-Cook Development Co. are behind the planned multifamily development. 

Novare Group has already been hard at work on Foundry Yards by Railroad Park. 

The award-winning AT+T Operations Center will stay for now, and AT+T plans to continue working there until mid-2022, when the remaining employees will move over to 1876 Data Drive. 

Now tell us, Birmingham, what do you think of the idea of this new development? Tag us on social @bhamnow and let us know.
