A large mixed-use development in north
DeKalb County is still in the works after
Doraville gave the developer more time to
make progress on the project.
Atlanta-based Insignia LLC plans to
transform a shuttered Kmart along with Buford
Highland and I-285 into the 13-acre Lotus
Grove complex. At the end of 2019, the
developer announced plans for a five-story,
97-room Hilton brand hotel, 350
apartments, and roughly 115,000 square
feet of retail, office, and restaurant space.
The Lotus Grove project was announced
alongside another mixed-use development
in the city: Lumen Doraville. The
development broke ground at the end of
last year and will consist of two new
residential buildings with more than 320
apartments as well as approximately 35,000
square feet of commercial space.
