Atlanta — FCA Partners will redevelop Buckhead Exchange, one of Atlanta’s longest-standing retail centers in the Buckhead submarket. The renovation will transform the existing 48,500-square foot structure into an updated, pedestrian-focused center.
Redevelopment plans include an architectural redesign and renovation of the exterior storefronts and pedestrian environment including a new façade and updated sidewalks and landscaping. Additionally, a portion of the building will be demolished to create a paseo connecting the east-facing storefronts with those fronting Peachtree Road and Grandview Avenue, enhancing pedestrian circulation, creating an outdoor dining opportunity and adding storefront to the “elbow” space.
Demolition is scheduled to begin this month with the majority of renovations completed in phases by early 2016.
FCA Partners acquired Buckhead Exchange in 2013 for $15.2 million from Principal Financial; Urbana Holdings and Jamestown previously owned the property.
