About the Town Center Project

The City of Chamblee and the Downtown Development Authority have partnered to transform the historic downtown district into a more complete “Town Center”, with new public spaces and amenities, public parking, and a mix of commercial and residential development. This redevelopment will be a public-private partnership to leverage existing public assets to create an attractive, market-based destination that will enhance the built environment, create jobs, improve mobility, and be sustainable through the years.

A City on the Right Track: Located north of Atlanta, Chamblee, Georgia has transformed into a progressive and vibrant international city. From the South’s largest collection of antiques to the extensive collection of auto dealerships dubbed Chamblee’s Motor Mile to its historic downtown core, Chamblee offers a diverse array of shopping activities. Chamblee is home to great neighborhoods, nine parks, and DeKalb-Peachtree Airport. Chamblee has a rich history that has become one of the most thriving urban cities with a diverse community and international flair, highlighted by Buford Highway’s amazing mix of cuisines from Asian, Hispanic, and other cultures.
