REVIVAL ON MAIN STREET - 

Downtown Kennesaw Residential and some Retail.  Shown is interior while under construction.


From the inception of this concept I have said that it will either be the best thing since sliced bread or a major flop (OK, I didn't say 'flop' some other words one being 'up').  I don't know which it will be, in a year we should know which it is.

A Face Book thread had info and comments on this development so I will post my comments from there on this site also.  Here is the pictorial depection of the development from clearing the property to today, scroll down to take a look at how things developed over the last 18 months.

Here are some things you would want to take into consideration before renting here:

1)  I was in the first group to take the 'tour' of the place on June 11th, I am NOT in construction nor do I have that as a background but several people commented that they did not think that the construction was being done that well, (see my blog photos for interior shots),

2)  Has anyone but myself noticed that this complex is 150' from the most traveled section of railroad in Metro Atlanta (ie:  Atlanta to Chattanooga) and that just across the street from the building is a crossing and per Federal regulations all trains must sound their air horns when approaching such crossings (yes, that means 3 a.m. etc).

3)  Take a look at the traffic both morning and evening, 2 hours each of 'rush hour' traffic, that means long back ups AND a lot of traffic noise.

4)  Those units facing Main Street will have a major noise problem from vehicles and trains, even those facing the City Hall will have noise problems.

5)  I bet $ that there has been no effort made at sound proofing, either the walls or the windows and patio doors.  As a former condo owner I would warn all of you that the construction in #1 above seems to indicate that you are going to hear every step your upstairs neighbor takes.

6)  Summary:  When finished tenants will find that living downtown is crowded, noisy and expensive.

Revival on Main, consists of 252 residential units and retail commercial area of approximately 9,000 square feet. 

The project also included approximately 638 parking spaces.


ALSO:  Take a look at the complex via the WSB TV report, it shows some nice interior shots, including the court yard.  Rents for apartments will be between $1,000 and $2,000.   Go to:  http://www.wsbtv.com/videos/news/new-apartments-shops-and-restaurants-coming-to/vDSFR8/
