Andretti Closed Roswell Doors Jan. 1; Relocating To Buford

Andretti Indoor Karting & Games Roswell has closed it's doors effective Jan 1st. A brand-new state-of-the-art facility is currently under construction in Buford with a projected opening date for early 2021. The Roswell location was the first for the Orlando-based entertainment company and opened in January 2001.

The need for more space to accommodate an "ever-growing variety of attractions" is the reason Andretti Indoor Karting closed in Roswell.

Owner of former Shillings building serves up new details on incoming restaurant

A while ago we posted that Shillings on the Marietta Square had been sold and bought by Randy McCray, owner of The Mill Kitchen and Bar in Roswell and McCray's Tavern.

Shillings will become Mac's Chophouse, in March, and feature steaks and seafood.

It is also rumored that a McCray's Tavern will be opening in the now closed Loyal Tavern location on Johnson Ferry.

MARIETTA — Mac's Chophouse, a restaurant focused on steaks and seafood, will replace the Marietta Square mainstay, Shillings, owner Randy McCray told the MDJ this week.

Paid on-street parking on Canton Street and Elizabeth Way.

Visitors to downtown Roswell will soon notice that several on-street parking spaces on Elizabeth Way and along a portion of Canton Street will be converted to paid parking spaces. The city is currently installing new signs and equipment to prepare for the parking conversion, which is expected to go into effect on Jan. 2, 2020.

How do you feel about this?

The conversion to paid parking is expected to discourage long-term parking, a challenge noted by several downtown business owners.

Alpharetta approves North Point Mall special taxing area

The creation of a Tax Allocation District, or TAD, was passed unanimously by city council Monday. Fulton County and the county school system must still agree to put their own taxes toward economic improvements in the mall area, but the first approval, to form the district, has happened.

Alpharetta already has approved plans for a large mixed-use development on the mall’s property, and funneling tax dollars to the development plan, as a TAD allows, could jump start the project and give it a greater chance to succeed, leaders said.

Thoughts about this?

Alpharetta has approved a taxing district at North Point Mall that would redirect money toward redevelopment.

The Roswell Police Department partnered with Target Store Roswell this year for our annual #HeroesandHelpers event. Members of RPD raised the money internally and were able to assist 27 underprivileged elementary school children shop for themselves and their families.

The children were able to partake in a shopping spree, where they each received $150 dollars to spend, able to decorate cookies, and get their face painted along with other arts and crafts projects!

It was truly a great experience for our officers and staff to witness the genuine smiles of these children. A special thank you to our volunteers, Target employees, and the families for reminding us how special the holiday season is.

No peeking! The red envelope giveaway totaling $50,000 is back at Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar. Throughout December, the popular East Cobb dining destination is handing out 2,500 red envelopes containing a special gift to guests spending at least $30. The catch is that guests must keep the envelope sealed until they return in January. Once the envelope is presented to the server to unseal, one of six merry prizes will be revealed—including a five-course dinner for up to 12 people served in one lucky winner’s home, a complimentary appetizer or lunch item, free dessert and gift cards worth $25 and $50.

12/07/2019

The developers behind a proposed 62-acre Alpharetta mixed-use project have asked to add apartments to their plan years after getting the city’s blessing.

The Alpharetta Planning Commission unanimously voted Thursday night to recommend letting the developers have their change. The alteration will be considered by the Alpharetta City Council in two weeks.

The project, 360 Tech Village, would be located on Haynes Bridge Road off Ga. 400 at an exit between North Point Mall and Avalon. Avalon opened in 2014 and now has half-a-million square feet of tony retail, 250 apartments and a luxury hotel. The City Council said in February that North Point Mall could build its own 24,000-square-foot mixed-use project with 300 apartments.
