NORCROSS, GA- We Have the Vision if You Have the Imagination! Lillian Webb Park is about to Burst

Lillian Webb Plan September, 20- 600x768_thumb.jpg

Norcross, GA

We are excited to announce, redevelopment is on the horizon for certain areas around Lillian Webb Park, and the far-reaching effect is highly anticipated by everyone!

Builders, developers and visionaries are all welcome to be a part of the project.

The City of Norcross is ready to continue the investment started many years ago, by the creation of Lillian Webb Park. This time our emphasis is on additional living and retail to improve and complement existing older structures.

It is desired to build mixed-use commercial and residential complexes, as one development, and one phase. The completed project will become the focal point of our new urban center.

Lillian Webb Park is a four-acre park offering an interactive fountain, stone tiered waterfall and plaza, gazebo and public bathrooms. The park is central to the Project and is considered “value-added”. Other new short-term planned amenities include a 22,000 sq. ft. regional library and 300 space multi-level parking.

The park is always in-use by both residents and visitors and is considered our community center. It is estimated to have 750 thousand+ users, per year.

Public-private initiatives that enhance our vision or improve project completion will be considered.

Timeline
The City is ready and able to move forward with development. Utilities, some sidewalks and environmental studies are considered complete and an Overlay will allow for taller buildings. A new parking structure has already been Council approved and construction is expected to begin, this year.

Project Scope
The Lillian Webb Development Project is located north of Buford Highway; east of Holcomb Bridge Road; west of Britt Avenue and south of College Street, Norcross City Hall and the historic downtown area.

Proposed sites are well-matched for investment and the locations are attractive development areas because they are central to city amenities, in particular, Historic Downtown Norcross. Each has an existing infrastructure of utilities, roads, sidewalks, etc.

The corner of Buford Highway and Holcomb Bridge Road have been established by staff and council as a recognized “gateway” into the city. Landmarks will be placed within the short-term.
