FROM RAIL TOWN TO ECO-FRIENDLY SHOPPING
Peachtree Station adds a new sense of community to one of the fastest growing areas in the Atlanta metro. What once was a sleepy railroad town was called metro Atlanta’s hottest real estate market in 2017 by RE/MAX. While it grew rapidly among people and pets who enjoy the outdoors and a more natural lifestyle, it became apparent that something more was needed. Peachtree Station opened to offer people a place close to home where they can enjoy time with friends, access health services and shop for items that add to their lifestyle.
The City of Chamblee commenced as a small southern rail town from an area originally consisting of dairy farms. In 1917, Chamblee’s dairy land was transformed into Camp Gordon and later regenerated into a Navy flight training facility which is now home to Peachtree-DeKalb Airport, the second busiest airport in the state of Georgia.
In the 1980s, the city changed drastically. Large manufacturing sites downsized or closed and the city suffered a depleting tax base and major loss in population due to young workers following jobs in rapid-growing northern suburbs.
Chamblee has since transformed into a thriving and progressive urban community encompassing a multicultural lifestyle.
Chamblee recently experienced a rapid influx of commercial development and private-investment projects such apartments, townhomes, senior housing, office, retail and restaurant space. A large sector of the development centered around MARTA’s Gold Rail Line, provides access to Atlanta’s largest office submarkets, Buckhead, Central Perimeter, Midtown and Downtown as well as Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Peachtree Station offers Chamblee lifestyle oriented shopping
Peachtree Station, which officially opened in August 2017, delivered a whole new product to this thriving community providing a unique, lifestyle-driven tenant mix such as natural foods, casual dining, medical, wellness and beauty.
