Developer Wayne Robinson and architect Mark Cochran presented Rome City commissioners with enhanced plans to build The District on West Third Street facing the Oostanaula River adjacent to the Courtyard by Marriott. Robinson has been in talks with the city for almost a year to develop 2.2 acres with a mixed use concept of residential and retail. Below is a media release about The District, which could be completed by summer 2021. We’ve added links to each specific part of the project (apartments, condos, retail).
Robinson will join us at 8:10 a.m. Tuesday on Hometown Headlines Radio Edition on WRGA 98.7 FM to discuss The District and what’s next.
The District media release:
Located on West Third Street, The District will be an urban development integrating premium residential, retail and restaurant components. It will provide consumers and residents with an all-encompassing experience of live, shop, and dine, while also connecting them to the surrounding community.
The District will be adjacent to the Heritage Riverways Trail System, including the Chief John Ross Memorial Bridge which spans the Oostanaula River. This connection of The District to Downtown Rome will further contribute to the creation of a unified, walkable community between the riverbanks.
Apartment residents at The District will have the opportunity to choose from two- and three- bedroom unit types, each with a prevailing sense of style and refuge. (Click here)
Private residents at The District will have the opportunity to choose from predesigned or custom condo units for ownership. Bespoke floor plans, high end finishes and the opportunity for exclusive amenities will provide private residences with a unique design for each owner.

The design and craftsmanship of the residential units at The District will elevate the established standard of urban living in Rome. The District will also offer premium commercial space with on-site parking for your local business. (Click here)
The thoughtful urban development will be conveniently located in the heart of Rome, with prime visibility, and walkable proximity to lunch and after-hours amenities.
The anticipated completion date of The District is Summer 2021.
The distinguished and modern mixed-use development is an endeavor of local developer Wayne Robinson, and designed by local architect Mark Cochran of CEVIAN Design Lab.
