Downtown Marietta Real Estate Development In the Works

residential real estate in downtown MariettaAccording to the Marietta Daily Journal, a new mixed-use development is coming soon to downtown Marietta. The 12-acre site, which lies south of Roswell Street between Wayland and Waterman streets, will house about 11 acres of residential real estate, as well as almost 1 acre of businesses, from shops to restaurants.

The development is set to include 48 detached, single-family homes, as well as over 50 townhomes and a handful of duplexes. The homes will range in size from 2,000 square feet to 3,000+ square feet, and prices are expected to start in the $300,000s, though the homes overlooking downtown or featuring mountain views will reach the upper $400,000s.

Though new development is always a concern for existing residents, homeowners in downtown Marietta have nothing to worry about, according to the development plans. The area’s historic beauty and traditional Southern charm have been taken into account, and the new homes will feature cedar, stucco, brick, and stone elements, in keeping with local architectural styles. Land has been set aside for a possible pool or community garden, and the downtown Marietta location is sure to draw home buyers who want to be a part of the vibrant Marietta Square community.
