Whole Foods Market has announced another Metro Atlanta location in Chamblee, Ga. S.J. Collins Enterprises of Fairburn, Ga. has recently signed a lease with Whole Foods Market to anchor their “Peachtree Crossing” development located at the intersection of Johnson Ferry Road and Peachtree Boulevard. The former Oxford Chemical site will be redeveloped into an 11 acre lifestyle center. Jeff Garrison, Partner at S.J. Collins Enterprises, worked closely with Chamblee’s Planning and Zoning staff, and the Chamblee City Council to obtain approvals for the Planned Unit Development. “This project is a perfect example of how public and private interests can align to help revitalize a former industrial section of Atlanta. We look forward to continuing our work with The City of Chamblee to create a new standard for retail development,” said Garrison.

According to Mayor Eric Clarkson, “The City of Chamblee has long been the forefront of working to achieve good development with smart growth design principles. The Peachtree Crossing development anchored by a top quality natural grocer, Whole Foods, exemplifies these standards.”
