Sandy Springs City Center

Sandy Springs, Georgia

The City of Sandy Springs recently completed an ambitious new project that created a new heart of Sandy Springs. It is a vibrant, walkable, mixed-use development on 17 acres, bounded by Roswell Road, Johnson Ferry Road, Sandy Springs Circle, and Hilderbrand Drive. The $200 million project consists of two apartment buildings with a combined 288 units; a 130,200 SF city office/government center; The Byers Theatre with seating for 1,070 on three levels including box seats; the Studio Theater with a seating capacity for 350 people and a rooftop deck; 26,800 square feet of retail space; a two-level 619 space public parking deck; a 106 space-surface parking lot; and a public park. 

Long Engineering, Inc. (LONG) was retained to provide master planning assistance, land surveying, and civil engineering services to help create the vision and to design the final product. LONG’s services included boundary, topographic & utility surveys, roadway improvements including traffic calming measures on Hilderbrand Drive, Johnson Ferry Road, Sandy Springs Circle, and Mount Vernon Highway. Bluestone Road was extended north from Hilderbrand Drive to Mount Vernon Highway and continuing through the City Springs site to Johnson Ferry Road. A new east-west roadway was created within the site, which was named Galambos Way honoring Sandy Spring’s first mayor. Mount Vernon Highway was lowered to reduce slopes and enhance ADA accessibility. LONG also performed supplemental SUE/UC (QLB) and provided site design services for the City Springs mixed-use development, and managed the many significant utility relocations required to serve the site as well as the Mount Vernon Highway work.
