Adjacent to historic Oglethorpe University, the design of the mixed-use development of Town Brookhaven included a stone facade to incorporate an old-world feel into the modern design, thus harmonizing with Oglethorpe's gothic architecture. The project faced tremendous financial pressures during the recession, tightening the budget. Cordova Stone™ offered an economical alternative for achieving the design goals by providing the aesthetic look of historical stone in a veneer rather than actual cut stone. Various sized units of Alabaster Cordova Stone in both Groundface and Chiselface were used as continuous wainscot at front facades, for window heads and sills, and as full height veneer walls at certain locations.
Town Brookhaven offers 48 acres of premier retail space with 20,000 sq. ft. of office space and 950 luxury residential units. It is touted as a state-of-the-art pedestrian-friendly urban village located in the heart of Atlanta's Brookhaven community.
