This location once held two stand-alone restaurants. In 2007, the restaurants were demolished and the property rezoned for a mix of retail, office and restaurant uses. These plans never came to fruition and are no longer viable given current market conditions.
The property owner seeks a change in master plan and a conditional use permit to allow the bowling alley use on the property. The request will be heard by Alpharetta's Planning Commission in August and later by Council.
The application comes shortly after another entertainment complex begins construction in Alpharetta. Top Golf has begun clearing land for their massive new complex off West Side Parkway. The potential owner or operator of the bowling alley has not been revealed to the city.
Bowling alley operator Stars and Strikes, who have a location in Cumming and corporate office on North Point near this site, say they are not involved with this project.
Instead Stars and Strikes plans a new location in Sandy Springs at the corner of Roswell Road and Dunwoody Place.
