A mixed-use development with a footprint larger than Piedmont Park is brewing southwest of Atlanta.

That’s according to a recent filing with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, which indicates the project would be built across 211 acres adjacent to the Chattahoochee River in South Fulton.

Titled “Westwood,” the proposal is sizable enough to be considered a Development of Regional Impact, according to the filing made Aug. 25 by South Fulton government officials.

DRI officials have since determined the project “warrants regional review.”

The site is located about 17 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta, where Cascade Palmetto Highway meets Cochran Road. It’s directly west of Wolf Creek Amphitheater and a golf course of the same name.

The developer is listed as a Norcross-based LLC called United Consolidated Master.

According to filings with the state, the mixed-use project would include some 1,500 housing units and 350,000 square feet of commercial or institutional space, all to be built out over the next four years. 

The general area is home to residential subdivisions and sits just downstream from a large district of distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, and other industrial uses.

We’ve reached out to the development team for more information on the Westwood project and renderings, and we’ll post any updates that come.

According to the DRI filing, developers hope to complete the overall project by 2027.
