The City of Alpharetta, which is located about 20 miles to the north of Downtown Atlanta continues be the premiere suburb for Atlanta real estate. Alpharetta has long been favored for the fantastic public schools and conscientious use of public space for parks and beautification projects. Now Alpharetta has broken the mold of the typical suburb again with projects in the works that will make it feel like its own cultural and shopping center destinations, continuing its independence from Atlanta. Part of the success and popularity realized also lies in its ability to maintain a small town charm and combining it with the sophistication of larger metropolitan areas. Alpharetta real estate benefits from these projects as well as the excellent schools, low crime and numerous parks.

The exciting new projects include a revitalized downtown district with a new mixed use development known as The Alpharetta City Center. This development will combine retail stores and condominium living, embracing the same lifestyle found in another area of Atlanta at Atlantic Station. From a cultural perspective, Alpharetta is in the process of developing Encore Park, an outdoor amphitheater similar to the one located at Chastain Park which will be run by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and will play host to a summer pop concert series as well as events performed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Finally, Milton Park, another mixed use development, will combine single family homes, condos and townhomes with the high end Stanbury Residences along with numerous high end shops rivaling anything offered in other areas of Atlanta's shopping districts. Parks and recreation have always been very high on the list of priorities for homeowners and Alpharetta does not fail its residents here. Alpharetta is recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City and parks such as the Big Park Greenway and Wills park, which is complete with an equestrian center and city pool, along with new park projects and numerous smaller parks offer residents something to do all year around.

These new developments, along with the parks and recreation department will make Alpharetta real estate the premiere suburb of Atlanta for years to come. Combined with a responsive city government with a AAA bond rating, nationally recognized emergency service which allow for lower homeowners insurance, conscientious and liberal use of public space as parks and excellent public education and you have all of the ingredients that make Alpharetta a great place to call home.
