When North American Properties drew up plans for a luxury hotel at Avalon, its $1 billion, 86-acre housing, office, restaurant and shopping project in the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta, the developer wanted to reinforce the enclave’s stature as a Main Street destination with white-glove service. To extend Avalon’s “living room” experience to the hotel, the developer designed a homey lobby and lounge and a South City Kitchen restaurant to entice locals as well as travelers. And hotel guests can use Avalon’s amenities as part of their stay, including ordering room service from restaurants or visiting spas and fitness clubs.

A $2.5 billion waterfront mixed-use community planned in the borough will re-imagine how people live, work and play, while giving residents a brand-new Main Street and community. That's the vision of the redeveloper of the much anticipated massive Riverton project, which is scheduled to break ground later this year, and take more than a decade to complete. "I think it's a great thing for Sayreville," borough resident Scott Betzler said. "It's unused space and we need to trend in a different direction. Malls are getting old and it's time to get something new going."
