North American, the team behind Alpharetta's uber-popular Avalon development and the revival of Midtown Atlanta's Atlantic Station, recently launched social media accounts and an initial website for the Revel project.
North American Properties revealed Thursday that its sizable mixed-use project on Gwinnett's Infinite Energy Center campus will be called "Revel."
The website suggests that the project will include “330,000 square feet of retail, restaurants and entertainment,” 600,000 square feet of Class A office space, 700 residential units and a 300-room hotel. A spokeswoman for North American said those numbers are fluid and could change.
Plans for a “premium movie theater experience,” which were referenced in information sent to The AJC, have not previously been reported publicly.
The entire Revel project, officials said, will be guided by five principles: being “festive,” “welcoming,” “vibrant,” “diverse” and a “hub of activity.”
The same team that created Avalon is being used at Revel, officials said. Wakefield Beasley will be the master architect, Kimley-Horn is the civil engineer and Site Solutions is the landscape architect.
Few specifics have been offered about the project’s site plan or its possible tenants. But North American Properties encouraged the public to attend a breakfast meeting later this month during which it will release the site plan and hold a panel discussion.
The Feb. 27 event is sponsored by Partnership Gwinnett and tickets must be purchased. More information can be found here.
