The Encore Mixed-Use Development

Site Design Leads to $70 Million Mixed-Use Development

Croy was responsible for the site feasibility studies, site design, utility surveying, and permitting for the $70 million Encore mixed-use development. The site includes 327 residential units and 7,500 square feet of commercial development on a planned 6.65 acre footprint. Utility surveying and site design was complicated on this site, due to the large building footprint on a small area. Also designed on the site was a pump station for the neighboring development, a pump station for the proposed building, and a large stormwater detention vault.

The site analysis involved:

  • Analyzing three properties for office, residential, and retail development
  • Analyzing existing/proposed zoning conditions to determine potential property yield
  • Creating concept layouts for an 11-story office tower and 327 apartment units
  • Developing a retail center layout
  • Producing preliminary development estimates for site selection analysis

The site design included:

  • Producing zoning plans
  • Conducting traffic engineering studies to determine the development’s impact
  • Performing a signal warrant analysis
  • Producing grading and drainage plans
  • Coordinating with adjacent property owners and Cobb County on abandonment/restructuring of existing easements
  • Completing hydraulic studies/reports necessary for permitting
  • Coordinating with local utilities for on-site infrastructure
  • Modeling pre- and post-development conditions for stormwater and sewer needs
  • Producing/permitting erosion control plans
  • Performing land disturbance permitting activities
