New Forsyth County Arena Project Announced

Plans for The Gathering at South Forsyth at the intersection of Ronald Reagan Boulevard and Union Hill Road, have been announced, to create a world-class entertainment hub for North Georgia including best-in-class dining, local and high-end retail, a boutique and business hotel, a community center, varied residential options and an arena designed to host a range of top-tier events.

“The Gathering at South Forsyth will provide residents, employers and visitors with the ability to see their favorite musician, experience a family-friendly ice show or eat at a James Beard-awarded restaurant without having to travel outside the County’s boundaries. The development will include the best in advanced technology, sustainability, walkability and connectivity – all within a comfortable and accessible setting.

Along with live events like concerts, the plan could also bring local high school graduations, which are often done at Gwinnett County’s Gas South Arena, to Forsyth County.

Per the news release, on Tuesday, April 25, the project’s development team will file a request for an overlay district that “includes 1.6 million square feet of commercial and retail space, a 750,000-square-foot arena, a 100,000-square-foot community center, a 7,500-square-foot fire station, 450 hotel rooms with meeting spaces and residential units to help support the project.” The project will be similar to those of Avalon, Halcyon and The Battery.

New transportation improvements in this area including the extension of Ronald Reagan Boulevard, the widening of McGinnis Ferry Road and the new interchange on 400 at McGinnis Ferry will mitigate traffic impacts in the area. Finally, it will provide the county with significant added tax revenue that will benefit every resident with long-term economic viability.”

This will be the single biggest project win for Forsyth County, and from an economic development driver, it will be the biggest project landing since Forward Forsyth launched five years ago.

The development is planned at the site of a former mall project, which had been proposed in 2008 but never became a reality. To read more details about the planned project, click here
