Construction activity picks up in Coweta
by Sarah Fay Campbell
Construction is currently under way on the new Marriott hotel located at Ashley Park, and work continues on the 'Trees of Newnan,' an apartment complex to be located behind the Newnan retail center.
On the other side of Newnan Crossing Bypass, work is progressing on the four-phase expansion of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern hospital.
New businesses continue to find homes within the Ashley Park shopping center, including The Great American Cookie Company and Pita by the Beirut.
A portion of the Ashley Park shopping center was listed in the foreclosures in both November and December, with the property tentatively set to have been sold on the courthouse steps Tuesday. However, no information could be obtained this week as to whether the property was actually foreclosed.
Ray-Lin is the contractor for the new hotel, which is owned by Paramount Hospitality Marriott. It's located on McIntosh Parkway, across from Atlanta Fitness.
The 58,825-square-foot Marriott hotel will have 233 rooms, a breakfast room, fitness room, an outdoor pool, and 96 parking spaces, according to City of Newnan Public Information Officer Gina Snider.
As for the Trees of Newnan apartment complex developed by Wilwat Properties, new housing availability will include 250 units, along with a pool and clubhouse, walking trails, playgrounds, and tennis courts, said Snider.
No estimated completion date was available for either the hotel or the apartment complex.
The expansion of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, located between Newnan Crossing Bypass and Interstate 85, has been in progress for several months, with construction cranes visible for miles.
Phase one included an inpatient expansion on the third floor of 25,000 square feet, and an addition of a fourth floor penthouse.
The second phase is a fourstory tower including a pharmacy remodel, administrative expansion and clinic expansion, according to Snider.
The third phase is an expansion and remodel of the first floor, and the fourth phase will continue the first floor expansion as well as expansion of the radiation department.
