According to an article in The Atlanta Business Chronicle, Atlanta is currently the number two city in the country for millennials. In comparison to other larger cities across America, there are around the same types of opportunities for the 18-30 year old’s, with housing and expenses that are relatively cheaper than other areas. However, with so many millennials relocating to the “New York of the South,” there are a ton of competition among neighborhoods around Atlanta.
In a recent interview with 11 Alive News, Peachtree Corners Mayor Mike Mason has announced that plans are in the works for a 300 unit, 39 acre housing development to be built in the small Gwinnett county suburb. With its reputation as high tech job hub, Mason is trying to lure millennials out of the Midtown Atlanta area and into Peachtree Corners.
Designs for the complex include one and two bedroom units, a dog park, boat dock, paddle boats, cyber cafe, trails for hiking and biking, a gym, pool, and plenty more. Hopefully, with more traction to the area, neighborhoods intown will finally empty a little more and people can move to other suburbs where tech jobs are numerous.
