PROJECT RENAISSANCE – A NEW GEORGETOWN
The City invested considerable time in exploring the strategy outlined by the Master Plans for the 16-acre parcel as well as a 19-acre property (the former Emory Hospital site on North Shallowford) which the City has under contract. A concept was discussed for potentially mixing parks, civic space and private sector development (both low density owner occupied residential and neighborhood commercial) to fully utilize the total 35 acres of both properties. The City created Project Renaissance as a catalytic public private partnership designed to ignite the redevelopment of the Georgetown area.
