Avalon — a mixed-use development in Alpharetta where one can work, eat, live and play — will host its grand opening of its expansion on April 13.
But before the expansion was a collection of brick and mortar shops, offices, restaurants and apartments, its was just dirt.
Avalon has provided a video to show the progress of its work:
