I'm glad I found this thread. I live within a mile of this plot and have been wondering what was going in--I was hoping for a Target (dangerous as it might be for my wallet.)

I haven't been following this much lately, has anything new or exciting happened at the site? Are there any scheduled dates for construction? I know the earthmovers were there a while ago, but I heard they left towards the end of last year.

Nope.  After they finished leveling it out it's been inactive.  Some of the equipment is still sitting there though.  I'm guessing they're waiting for it to warm up some so they can start with the concrete work.  They'll have to start soon on such a big project if it's to open in O8 as they say it will.

I was doing some browsing on Google Maps today and realized just how large this chunk of land really is.

I wouldn't be too hurt if they put in a Whole Foods.

that would be PHENOMENAL

I go to the NKC Community center because it's on my way home from work, but I'd love to have a place so close. I've used the "fitness" room at my apt complex a few times, but it's kind of dingy and doesn't offer much in terms of strength training.

Ahh!!! The dust is kicking up everywhere now.  First Zona Rosa and now this project.  Saw a bunch of graders (graters?) getting busy adding some finishing touches to the groundwork on this site.  I love construction season.  Even if it does mean my car always being dusty.

I ride my bike by here every day on my way back to the bus at boardwalk...I would hate to live in the one farm house left on NW Tiffany Springs road.  It is interesting, I've been riding on that road since last June or July, and I'm not sure when they started the grading (although I like the metaphoric use of "grating") the land, I think I rode it once or twice, then they ripped open the land...

Anyway, when the wind is from the south, it really whips across that open dirt.  I wonder if they'll expand any of the roads that feed in from the west or north...

Here's my route.

I suppose this is the official announcement on this new Northland project.  With the second phase of Zona Rosa and this, this is going to be the major commercial hub for the Northland.

Good news for the metro.

That Atlanta Biz Journal comes up as a bad URL for me.

I live and work not too far from this development and ZR.  ZR has a pretty sizable hole dug for phase II as well as a new building with walls erected right across from Dicks and B&N.

This new development on the northeast corner of I-29/152 keeps having a ton of grading.  They hit it strong late last year, then slowed over the winter and have been back to heaving grading this Spring and Summer.  They've also added some turn lanes on Ambassador drive, so it looks like something is in the works for the land on the east side of Ambassador.  I would hope it would be commercial considering the location, but I guess it could be residential.  No work is being done to the ground there just yet, but they did put in a right-turn lane on that side, which indicates to me something is planned.

Is there another area of town that will have as much retail in one area as Barry and 29 in a few years? Wow.

I noticed this past week that they have now progressed past the constant grading to actual digging.  There is a lot of digging going on now, so I would say we should start seeing some real construction in September.

Roads are starting to go in now, and there are quite a few street lamps up in the area.  Also, they have closed Tiffany Springs Rd between Skyview and Ambassador.  It is already completely torn up.  Not sure if they are going to just widen it or better yet, move it so the road lines up with the bridge going over I-29.

There is now a large banner on the west side of the development facing towards I-29 that lists the stores going in there.  Listed were Target, Best Buy, JCPenny, The Home Depot, and Sports Authority.  I think that is all of them that were listed.

Geez....

So I guess that's the nail in the coffin for the 169 best buy?  That area is going to look like Bannister Mall in five years.
