The vision for a vibrant retail and restaurant row adjacent to Avondale Estates' Town Green took a step closer to reality Tuesday, Jan. 10. At the Avondale Estates Downtown Development Authority’s (DDA) regular monthly meeting, authority members voted unanimously to approve the development contract for the Town Green Mixed-Use Project with ATG Partners, LLC, the development team of Fabric Developers, LLC and Healey Weatherholtz Properties.
The Town Green Mixed-Use Project consists of two two-story buildings fronting the Town Green along N. Avondale Road. Tenants will include neighborhood, full-service restaurants with outdoor dining overlooking the park, and destination local retail designed to connect the downtown with pedestrians. The project also calls for second-floor office and event space.
The buildings will include public restroom facilities that will be open and available to the public during the normal business hours of the Town Green.
"The Avondale Estates Downtown Development Authority could not be more excited to enter this agreement with Fabric. Fabric has taken the time to truly understand our needs and wants for this area, and they bring proven, high-quality development that is completely in line with our Downtown Master Plan and design/use guidelines. This development is exactly aligned with our strategic imperative of further activating our fabulous Town Green,” said Dave Deiters, Chair of the DDA.
"We are eager to take the next step toward realizing a new downtown for the City of Avondale Estates. We look forward to building upon the energy that the City has already created through its construction of the Town Green," added Jerry Miller, principal of Fabric Developers, LLC.
