Sandy Springs is opening a new anchor to its city center in 2018, a $229 million arts-and-government complex that will solidify its position as a modern city.
The complex includes a new city hall and a performing arts center, along with shops, apartments and a town green. The brick-and-glass structure will hold city council meetings and the new City Springs Theatre Company, along with other performances. But the complex aspires to do much for the city.
The brickwork and water features near the green echo the Chattahoochee River. The roads have been configured to allow more connectivity. Lawn chairs will invite people to sit, to stay. Some of the 294 apartments and townhouses already have residents.
Performing Arts Center: The Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center at City Springs will feature a main stage with a seating capacity of 1,100. The venue’s grand opening will be from Aug. 7-19. The 12-day event will be littered with performances and activities.
Where is City Springs located? City Springs is west of Roswell Road, between Mount Vernon Highway and Johnson Ferry Road. The complex is about a mile north of I-285.
