As for what supermarket will fill that space, Attorney John Moore, who is representing Kaplan Morgan Vinings Development, wouldn’t say more than “it is a national well-known brand.”
Moore said this process started about eight months ago.
The developer had to wait for school to start in order to get an accurate reading for a traffic impact study.
“It’s been delayed a long time,” he said.
The project’s only “traffic culprit” to planning officials was the intersection of Paces Ferry Road and Cumberland Parkway and its bottleneck made worse by the I-285 off-ramp, Moore said.
County planners have told the company that traffic improvements costing an estimated $800,000 are required for the project to move forward, but it’s not clear who would pay for them.
“I’ve been informed Cobb County has no money to do the improvements,” Moore said. “Whatever it costs is what’s going to be done.”
