The Grand Opening Celebration of Avalon

Phase II Rendering 4-30-14

FOUR DAY SERIES OF EVENTS KICKS OFF ON OCTOBER 30

Four days of events and fanfare in late October will mark the grand opening of Avalon, North American Properties’ (NAP) $600 million mixed-use development in Alpharetta, Georgia. Events will include music, family entertainment, chef demonstrations, a surprise headliner and more to introduce a carefully curated collection of shops and restaurants. The surprise headliner will be announced on Avalon’s Facebook page soon.

 

The four-day celebration will be the culmination of a journey that began in 2012 when NAP purchased the property and began working with the community to design a mixed-use project that would be unlike anything else in the region. There have been many milestones from the Alpharetta City Council’s unanimous approval to a standing ovation at City Hall, to the topping-out party when NAP announced the retail component was 97 percent leased. Other highlights have included unprecedented demand for single-family residences and luxury rental homes; announcements that celebrity chefs will open restaurants at Avalon; the installation of “gigabit” technology; and the incredible support from the community on social channels.

Now here’s what you SHOULD do. You SHOULD go to this Food Stroll the day before called “The Perfect Taste.” It’s a chance for you to experience and get a taste of all the restaurants before the grand opening! Tickets are HERE 😉
