Boston based developer GID and real estate developer North American Properties (The company behind the Avalon, Atlantic Station’s recent transformations, and Colony Square) are finally working together to bring the long-awaited  urbanization of Dunwoody to life.

The partnership is said to bring an astonishing amount of new construction. The plans call for an 8 million-square-foot, transit-oriented community replete with an estimated 3,000 residences—1,500 apartments and 1,500 condos—400,000 square feet of retail, 400,000 square feet of office space, and some 400 hotel rooms near the Dunwoody MARTA Station.

GID will be responsible for leading the more than 40-acre development, while NAP will lead the retail, leasing, marketing, and community engagement efforts, according to news releases.

“To bring High Street Atlanta to life, it was important for us to engage a local partner, particularly as it relates to retail, restaurant, and entertainment leasing,” said James Linsley, president of GID Development Group.

According to officials, construction is said to begin at the end of next year.
