Maybe it’s not the splashiest or most exciting news, but developers send word today that Summerhill residents will soon be able to knock out grocery shopping and health checkups in one fell swoop.
Branch Properties, an Atlanta-based real estate investment and development firm, has signed leases with two Piedmont Healthcare tenants for the Summerhill Station project that’s under construction just south of downtown.
They’ll join a 50,000-square-foot Publix Super Market at the 4.4-acre development, with all three tenants announced so far expected to open in summer 2023.
According to Branch officials, a Piedmont Urgent Care by Wellstreet location will occupy a 6,163-square-foot space and provide injury and illness care to kids and adults.
The smaller facility, a Piedmont primary care location with just shy of 5,000 square feet, will provide access to the hospital network's specialists and physicians for pediatric services, internal medicine, and family medicine.
“We’re pleased to provide the Summerhill community with the highest quality medical service provider available,” Branch partner Brett Horowitz said in a media release. “As we continue to enlist new tenants, we’re seeking retail, dining, and service options that will resonate with the neighborhood.”
Beyond the 87,000-square-foot Summerhill Station project, Branch is overseeing development of six other Publix-anchored shopping centers around the Southeast, including Hugh Howell Marketplace in Tucker and Perimeter Marketplace in Dunwoody.
Summerhill Station is part of a 19-block redevelopment claiming what used to be Turner Field’s parking lots and many buildings along a formerly moribund Georgia Avenue.
As part of Summerhill's masterplan, Carter is reconnecting the neighborhood’s original street grid to improve walkability and access to Publix, cleaving extensions of Crumley and Glenn streets into asphalt parking lots.
Publix has signed a lease with Carter to operate its grocery between the reconnected corridors, with two levels of parking tucked off Hank Aaron Drive.
Also in the works is 35,000 square feet of retail space in several low-rise buildings that will face the 565 Hank apartments, a 300-unit development across the street.
