New 48,000 Square Foot Retail Development Announced for Brookhaven near Johnson Ferry & Ashford Dunwoody Roads

Coro Realty Advisors and Easlan Capital announced Tuesday that they will develop the retail component of the Heights at Brookleigh, a mixed-use development including a retirement community and over 400 apartments, townhomes and single family homes. The property, known as Brookleigh Marketplace, will contain approximately 48,000 square feet of retail. The property's location at Johnsons Ferry Road near Ashford Dunwoody Road has remained undeveloped for some time and has been widely pursued. Coro will lease and manage the property. Easlan will supervise the development and construction.

"We are enthusiastic about bringing this product to our site," said Kent Levenson, President of Easlan. Easlan assisted the Worthing Company and Norsouth in the design and rezoning of the property. "Brookleigh Marketplace's design, new construction and strategic location enable us to fill a niche not currently served by the older retail properties in the area. The talented, seasoned individuals working at Coro and Easlan are in tune with this market and are the best suited to maximize the potential of this unique location." Easlan Capital specializes in the design, zoning, and development of mixed use properties, most notably the St. Regis Plaza, Terminus, and Glenridge Springs Projects in Atlanta.

Brookleigh Marketplace is planned to include 2 outparcels and approximately 27,000 square feet of in-line space in two to three buildings. Coro and Easlan are targeting restaurants and a variety of neighborhood retail uses for the property.

Robert Fransen, Partner of Coro, commented, "Coro is committed to enhancing the retail experience in Atlanta, and is excited about adding to the value created in this area by the recent construction of several residential developments. We believe that Brookleigh Marketplace will be a vibrant addition to the Brookhaven community."
