Developer Issa Says Enhancements Added To Planned East Brainerd Shopping Development

Monday, June 30, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

At a public meeting held at the YMCA, developer Bassam Issa said a number of enhancements will be included in plans for a new supermarket off of the intersection of Shallowford Road and Ogletree Road.

Working with the Regional Planning Agency, Mr. Issa said he has helped create a design for the space that is "pedestrian-friendly" through the addition of sidewalks.

Pat Neuhoff of Neuhoff Taylor Architects said, "We're trying to make it more residential looking, more fitting with the residential area.

..We're trying to put in more landscaping."

While the neighborhood on the other side is gated, Mr. Neuhoff said, "If the neighborhood on the other side would like to access it, they can put a gate in."

He also said they also aimed to "maximize the green space."

The retail section, which will not be immediately viewable from the road, will feature a roundabout with a center monument. The new additions will be one-story tall.

 Mr. Issa said, "I have two grocery stores that we're talking to and we'll pick one of them."

 No new traffic signals will be added as a result of this project, it was stated.
