Kennesaw agrees to mixed-use developments

Downtown Kennesaw will be changed substantially by two projects approved Nov. 19 by the Kennesaw City Council.

With 38,000 square feet of commercial space, Sanctuary Development plans to develop around 7.5 acres on Keene Street for a mixed-use development that will include retail, 77 three-story townhomes, mercantile, three restaurants, offices and breweries.

Built around 1890 on that site, the Kennesaw School/Martha Moore School building will be removed by Sanctuary Development for its Creekside development.

However, the façade of the original historic school will be recreated as the centerpiece of the project.

On the adjacent 15 acres and in cooperation with Sanctuary Development, Core Property Capital (CPC) proposes to develop along Summer Street, Keene Street, Burrell Court and Cobb Parkway a mixed-use concept, containing apartments, retail, restaurants and townhomes in two phases.
