OliverMcMillan Rebrands 8-Acre Buckhead Development

LAS VEGAS, (May 23, 2011) – OliverMcMillan, a San Diego-based real estate firm that develops urban and mixed-use retail, entertainment and residential projects, unveiled today new renderings, a new architectural model and a new name for Buckhead Atlanta, a six-block, eight-acre luxury mixed-use urban village located in the heart of Atlanta’s upscale Buckhead neighborhood.

The announcement was made at he International Council of Shopping Centers’ annual RECon show in Las Vegas.

Formerly known as The Streets of Buckhead (top left photo), the project was one of the highest profile developments in the country halted by the economic downturn and financing drought. The new name signifies a departure from the concept of a single destination development and a move toward a mixed-use community that will fit seamlessly within the existing Buckhead Village. Buckhead Atlanta will provide a foundation that encourages the natural evolution of the surrounding community.

“Buckhead Atlanta will be woven into the fabric of this world-class community,” said Morgan Dene Oliver, chief executive officer of OliverMcMillan. “Anyone who visits Buckhead Atlanta will know they are someplace special and they will want to return often.”
