ARW Group Plans to Develop $700M Atlanta River Walk Project
BRASELTON, GA. — ARW Group LLC, a joint venture between Peachtree City developer Jorge Duran and Harry Kitchen Jr. of the Foxfield Co., plans to build Atlanta River Walk, a $700 million mixed-use destination in Braselton. The proposed 508-acre project will be centered around a man-made “river” and will resemble the San Antonio Riverwalk and Oklahoma City Bricktown. The waterfront village will feature international restaurants and high-end shopping. Other components include single-family and multifamily housing, a Class A office park, seniors housing, a movie theater, boutique hotel, conference center, major supermarket and an outdoor amphitheater. The project will be surrounded by 30 acres of green space featuring art installations, walking trails and a multi-use path. Atlanta River Walk will be situated near Chateau Elan and Road Atlanta and straddle the county line between Hall and Jackson counties. ARW Group created the master plan in collaboration with Wakefield Beasley Architects and engineering firm Atwell Group. Funari Realty will manage residential sales. The project team also includes Road Atlanta and the city of Braselton. The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that ARW Group will present the Atlanta River Walk project at a Hall County Planning Commission meeting today to get the site rezoned. The Chronicle also reports that no construction financing has been finalized. ARW Group plans to provide equity financing for the development.
