The growth around Ashley Park continues into 2020 with the possibility of a new mix of shopping and dining. Site plan documents are currently under review by the city of Newnan for a development north of Belk. Phase Three of Ashley Park could feature three new restaurants and one specialty bake shop.
Along with new restaurants, several retail spaces are proposed for the development. One of those retail tenants, Sleep Number has confirmed they will occupy a space in the center. A restaurant, Flying Biscuit Cafe, and bake shop, Nothing Bundt Cakes, have noted they intend to open locations in Newnan; however, a location at the new shopping center was not confirmed.
Phase Three once built will sit just south of Dick’s Sporting Goods on the eastern side of Newnan Place Parkway. Parking is already established in this area in front of the Belk store. According to the site plans for Phase Three, a new parking lot will lay adjacent to the new center with sidewalks facing Newnan Crossing Bypass and the new parking lot.
According to officials with the city of Newnan, a proposed zoning change would need to be approved from CCS (Commercial Shopping Center District) to MXD (Mixed Use Development District) before construction could begin. Those interested can attend the public hearing scheduled for March 10 at 7:00 p.m. inside Newnan City Hall, located at 25 Lagrange Street, in downtown Newnan.
At the time of publishing, comments from Thomas Land Development and Fourth Quarter Properties were unavailable. We have made various attempts to retrieve additional insight on the upcoming project. Phase Three at Ashley Park is separate from the projected expansion covered by The City Menus in June 2019. We do not have any additional information to share on the expansion at this time.
