Smyrna Voted Hot Spot to Live in Metro Atlanta

Smyrna-JenniferPhoto4.jpgAccording to REMAX, Smyrna is Metro Atlanta’s hottest hotspot for new homes.

A new report from REMAX says Smyrna was on the list, followed by Chamblee, Cumming, and then Alpharetta in fourth. The rankings were developed by looking at factors like increases in property values and the number of days homes spend on the market as well as surveys of brokers in the area.

Realtor Tom Ash thinks Smyrna should expect to see a boosted population, which will also increase the tax base.

“As far as what it means for Smyrna residents, it’s great because if you’re a Smyrna resident, your property values are increasing,” said Ash. “With the market changing like that in Smyrna, it’s just good for everyone out there. It promotes development and it just brings in new buyers and makes it a hotter market, and that’s good for everyone in Smyrna.”

Smyrna City Councils Approves New Plan of Riverview Landing Development

smyrna-RiverviewLandingFor awhile, plans have been in the works for Riverview Landing, a residential space on the Chattahoochee River. The Smyrna City Council approved plans for the development to move forward, at a smaller scale that the original plan of a mini-city from Jamestown Developers.

This development from the Ardent Construction would have 600 residential units, with a mix of 65 single-family houses, 233 townhomes, and 310 units in a mulit-family building. Townhomes will start in 200Ks, and go up to 400K for river-facing units.

The land is currently used as an REI Outdoor School outpost and recreation venue, which will stay put after development of Riverview Landing. The only retail space that could still be built in the development is 3,000 square foot space that may become a coffee shop open to the public eventually.

Construction could begin soon, so be on the lookout!
