HEART OF AUBURN
Foresite Group worked with City of Auburn officials, Auburn University representatives, and a local developer on this 17,000sf retail redevelopment project off South College Street in downtown Auburn, Alabama. The existing 3.5-acre site housed a restaurant, residential properties, and the Heart of Auburn hotel, which was an Auburn landmark for more than 50 years. The site is located adjacent to the Auburn University Alumni Center and across College Street from the Auburn University campus. Redevelopment of this site included extensive infrastructure improvements along with design and permitting for a pharmacy building and retail/restaurant facility. Significant attention was given to the proposed Urban Core 3 (UC-3) zoning of the site, and design included full consideration for those zoning changes.
