Mixed use project breaks ground in Duluth, Ga.


Duluth, Ga. - Atlanta-based Fuqua Development, along with The Worthing Companies has broken ground on Sugarloaf Market, a 31-acre, mixed-use project located in Duluth, Georgia. Anchored by the organic grocery store Sprouts Farmers Market, Sugarloaf Market will include 75,000-sq.-ft. of retail and 330 luxury apartments.

Fuqua Development is the master developer for the project and is developing the commercial component of the project, while The Worthing Companies is developing the residential component.

The initial line-up of restaurants and shops coming to Sugarloaf includes Chipotle Mexican Grill, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, Orange Theory Fitness, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, Zoe’s Kitchen, RaceTrac, Waffle House, Panda Express, Banfield Pet Hospital, Supercuts, Luxury Nail, Pie Five Pizza and AT&T. These establishments are expected to open for business starting spring 2016.

Additionally, negotiations are underway with potential tenants for smaller shop spaces as well as larger outparcels.

Named The Heights at Sugarloaf, the residential component of the new project will include five residential buildings with one-, two- and three-bedroom luxury apartments. The Heights at Sugarloaf will offer 330 apartment homes featuring high-end finishes, designer-inspired appointments and appliances along with onsite amenities like a resort-style swimming pool and deck with Wi-Fi, grilling areas, a fitness club and other lifestyle services.

Preliminary site work is currently underway with vertical construction set to commence by July. Pieper O’Brien, Herr Architects, designed Sugarloaf Market while Parker Associates designed The Heights community. Site work is being completed by Eagle Excavation.

“This is an exciting day for our companies and for the City of Duluth as well,” said Jeff Fuqua, principal of Fuqua Development. “At Sugarloaf Market, we are creating a singular, mixed-use environment that will serve the residents in the development’s luxury apartments but will also provide retail, service and restaurant amenities for the surrounding community.”
