McWhirter Realty Partners was honored to assist Cobb County School District (CCSD) on the sale of 3 former school sites in 2018. All 3 campuses are to be redeveloped for a variety of high-quality mixed-use developments.
1. The former Mountain View Elementary School at 3448 Sandy Plains Road was sold to a joint venture between Fuqua Development & Brooks Chadwick Capital. Fuqua Development will redevelop the 13.8 acre campus into a mixed-use retail and restaurant development, featuring Georgia’s first GreenWise Market, an organic grocery store owned and operated by Publix Super Markets, Inc.
2. The former Brumby Elementary School at Powers Ferry Road, between Terrell Mill Road and Delk Road, was sold to a joint venture between Connolly Realty, LLC and Eden Rock Real Estate Partners. The joint-venture acquired the 9+ acre former school campus and additional land in a total of 23 acres for a mixed-use development including a new Kroger, other restaurants and retail space, multi-family residential living and climate controlled self-storage. Once the new Kroger store has opened, the older existing Kroger at Powers Ferry and Delk Road will also be available for redevelopment, further improving this vital corridor.
3. The former Martha J. Moore Educational Center is conveniently located in walkable, Downtown Kennesaw. This property was sold to the Kennesaw Downtown Development Authority (KDDA) in a simultaneous closing from the KDDA to Sanctuary Development. Sanctuary Development intends to redevelop the 7+ acre campus in a mixed-use development including a brewery, commercial/retail space and townhomes. The Cobb County School District and the City of Kennesaw worked closely together to pave the way for this exciting mixed-use addition in desirable downtown Kennesaw.
Each of these redevelopments will bring high-quality new retail space and other mixed-use offerings to these 3 significant Cobb communities. McWhirter Realty Partners was pleased to assist the Cobb County School District with these important redevelopment projects and McWhirter and the CCSD wish these very fine developers much success on each of their exciting developments.
