The first retail development in at least 20 years within the Clifton community includes many familiar retail businesses and some original shops. Recently, three new retailers and a sixth restaurant have signed leases at Emory Point. The new leases include three locally-owned women’s boutiques – fab’rik, Lizard Thicket and American Threads – and a new restaurant from Westside Atlanta West Egg Café called The General Muir.
Cousins Properties previously announced that CVS Pharmacy, Marlow’s Tavern, La Tagliatella and Jasmin Spa – in addition to other merchants – had signed leases at the mixed use development. Phase 1 of Emory Point features 80,000 square feet of retail space and 443 luxury apartments, which is scheduled to be complete beginning this fall. The second and third phases of the project will be developed according to market demand. “We thought it was a great opportunity to introduce multifamily housing and a vibrant retail, restaurant, outdoor environment for the faculty, staff, students and other employees in the Clifton corridor,” says Mike Mandl, Emory’s executive vice president for finance and administration. “Our real hope is that the vast majority of the residents work within walking, bicycling or shuttle distance.”
The mixed use project is in close proximity to Emory University, Emory Healthcare, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and across the street from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and will target individuals working and living nearby.
