One of the key areas to watch for new development just got a new player.
Coosa Valley Credit Union will soon break ground for the construction of a new main office at 1307 Redmond Road at the former Northwest Georgia Credit Union site just down the highway from the current main office. In a post Monday, the credit union said “a major factor in moving to this new site is for the safety of our members and staff. The new location will have much easier access and most importantly, a traffic signal. The credit union hopes to open at the new location in early 2020.”
A move had been expected, especially following the merger with Northwest Georgia. But there’s more to it than the utilization of the NWGCU campus. Also of note:
The Spires at Berry College is rising just across the Bypass from the credit union’s planned new home. The project has secured $120 million in tax exempt bonding with $18 million in building permits already being secured for 600 Eagle Lake Trail. Planned are 170 independent livnig units plus 107 health care suites for assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing care. The Spires also has a 2020 opening date.
Harbin Clinic is in the planning stages for a new medical office building to be situated at the corner of Woodrow Wilson Way and John Maddox Drive adjacent to two other Harbin campuses. The plan is for “the majority of medical care for women and children to be located in this new building, including Ansley Park Pediatrics, Harbin Clinic Women’s Center and Harbin Clinic Pediatrics,” the clinic announced in a recent release.
And the VIP Express, a new convenience store across from the new credit union site at 1321 Redmond Road, recently was awarded its beer and wine package license from the city’s Alcohol Control Commission. From the ACC minutes in January: The application was made by Mrs. Avani Patel, manager of VIP Express, 1321 Redmond Road. She said the hours of operation are from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. seven days a week. Mrs. Patel also said that they will have gaming machines at this location and said she is aware of the legal operation of these devices.
