The City of Woodstock recently announced plans for Woodstock City Center, an additional 3.5-acre mixed-use district added to the existing City Center site planned for the heart of downtown Woodstock. The City also announced that the last piece of land needed to move forward with development is under contract. An arrangement is in place with Morgans Hardware to relocate the store to another location near downtown and create the assemblage needed to develop City Center.
Over the years, the City has been presented many plans for this land that we knew our citizens would not like, from big boxes to highly dense projects, said Woodstock Mayor Donnie Henriques. We are very focused on creating a City Center in keeping with the existing downtown character.
Details and Benefits for the City Center development:
After much review, the City concluded this is the best location to add greatly needed downtown parking, which will be an integral part of the City Center development.
The site allows for important improvements to the intersection of East Main Street and Arnold Mill Road at Main Street and additional pedestrian connectivity in the Arnold Mill corridor.
Initial concepts call for a mix of additional retail, professional office, restaurant space, and boutique hotel with meeting space.
Project timing, details, and renderings will be released in the coming weeks and months as plans develop. Updates are also available at WoodstockGa.gov.
