 Located in Marietta on Canton Hwy on 6.5 acres south of Racetrac.

The updated plan calls for:  Phases 1-5

 Phase 1

  • “Olympic sized” bicycle velodrome which will be about the size of a Publix

  • a 2,500 sq ft Spin Center in the middle of the velodrome,

  • a 45,000 sq ft athletic field with seating for 5,000 for concert events,

  • a 50' high 3 story restaurant with concessions at ground floor, a restaurant with bar 2nd level and a “faith based Spirit Center” on the 3rd level.

  • a 50' high two story athletic center with a rooftop entertainment venue.

  • There is a walking and biking track around the perimeter,

  • two 200 sq ft restrooms and 127 parking spaces.

  • The updated site plan requires 1,800 parking spaces and has now added a parking deck at the southern end of the property

Phase 2:  Canton at Westerly Way: International Pub, more parking, a lawn, miniature golf and a dog park.

Phase 3 is a Transportation Center on the east side of Canton running south from Liberty Hill to just below the daycare center.

Phase 4 is a Hotel with 112 rooms, location unknown

Phase 5 calls for Student and Apartment housing with 500 beds and Senior Living with 100 beds, location unknown.


This application is too intense to be located on a 6.5 acre tract next to a senior residential community.  It will have a negative impact on all surrounding neighborhoods in terms of noise, light pollution, traffic and stormwater runoff..

It belongs in a Regional Activity Center, like Town Center and near Kennesaw State University.  It needs to be on at least 20 or more acres.  There is not adequate parking for a 5,000 seat outdoor concert venue.  While it is called Georgia Kids Project, there are plans to obtain a liquor license for their restaurant. 

This rezoning application is not appropriate for the area and the local community will experience a negative impact on their right to quiet enjoyment of their property.
