There are a number of things that have moved forward since our last slideshow of the Riverview Landing construction progress. The site work started up in a serious way by March of this year, and the shape of this multifamily phase is becoming visible.

The things that have changed since the last slideshow are: the streets have been repaved and sidewalks have been extended and repaired where necessary, the landscaping has moved further along with the placement of more street trees, further work has been done on the retaining walls on the west side of Riverview Road, and the slab, pipes, and conduit on the east side are moving along.  A parking lot and curbs are now in place on the south end of the site.

The section below gives a recap of Riverview Landing and was included in the last update.  If you’ve already read it, you can skip straight to the latest slideshow below it.

The history of Riverview Landing in Smyrna

Riverview Landing has been in the works in some form or other for 10 years.  Jamestown Properties, the developer of Ponce City Market, was the original owner.  The early plans included 155 single-family residences, 332 townhomes, 165 condominium, 200 residential senior housing units and 850 apartments on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.

Jamestown sold the property to the Ardent Companies, and the Smyrna City Council approved a scaled-down version of the original plan in March of 2017.

The phase currently under construction is apartments by Prestwick Companies.

According to an announcement from Prestwick, The Eddy at Riverview Landing is scheduled for opening in the spring of 2019.  It will include 310 Class A apartments, a coffee shop, a community theater, a kayak launch, walking and biking trails, and a public park that will become a Smyrna city park upon completion.

Prestwick is the developer for the multi-family component of Riverview Landing, Avalon Real Estate Partners will build 298 for-sale homes at a later date, Matrix Residential is the property management firm for the project, and the master developer is The Ardent Companies.

The Chattahoochee River Trail will eventually run alongside Riverview Landing, beginning on the north at the I-285 bridge, heading southward past an upcoming county park on the Chattahoochee River, and connecting with another mixed-use trail at Mableton Parkway. The trail will also have a bridge across the river to connect with the Proctor Creek Greenway.
