Ground broken on mixed-use project
Ground has been broken on Promenade at Newnan Crossing, a luxury apartment development, the first phase of a 123-acre mixed-use development weaving together public green space and walking trails with offices, shopping, restaurants, apartments and townhomes at the intersection of Newnan Crossing Boulevard East and Lower Fayetteville Road in Newnan.
The 298-unit, multi-family project will have a mix of three-story apartment buildings or “big house units” and for-rent townhomes on approximately 24.3 acres. The gated community will include a leasing center, business center, clubroom, fitness center, pool, outdoor grilling, bocce ball court, community garden, bike storage and a dog park. Novare Group is leading the development with partners PointOne Holdings Development and Batson-Cook Development Company (BCDC).
The 123-acre mixed-use master development, called Village Square at Newnan Crossing, will be a walkable, interconnected community with a mix of retail, office, restaurant and residential space anchored by a 10-acre park and a community plaza for the city of Newnan. The LINC, a city-approved 25.5 mile multi-use pedestrian pathway connecting the entertainment and commerce hubs, will run directly through the project and will be adjacent to the apartment community.
Free dental care for veterans June 9
On Saturday, June 9 nearly 500 Aspen Dental practices – including the Newnan location – will open their doors to provide free care exclusively to as many as 5,000 of the nation’s veterans.
Sen. Mike Dugan is stopping by the Aspen Dental Carrollton office from 9-10 a.m. Aspen Dental in Newnan is located at 201 Newnan Crossing Bypass.
Local veterans can call 1-844-277-3646 to schedule an appointment at a participating office. Appointments are required and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Like millions of other Americans, veterans can struggle to find oral health care when they need it, and are not eligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administration unless they are 100 percent disabled, have a service-related mouth injury or were a prisoner of war.
This is Aspen Dental’s Fifth Annual Day of Service and is part of Aspen Dental’s Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative that delivers free dental care to veterans.
Since the Healthy Mouth Movement started, nearly 10,000 Aspen Dental team members have given more than $10 million in donated dentistry to over 17,000 patients in need.
Other participating locations include Athens, McDonough, Gainesville, Cumming, Rome, Norcross, Calhoun, Dawsonville, Snellville and Kennesaw.
