Avalon combines retail, residential, office space, walking trails and more in Alpharetta, Georgia, a suburban city near Atlanta. Before Avalon, Alpharetta consisted of sprawling shopping centers and enclosed malls throughout the car-oriented city. In a typical day, residents would drive from the gym to the grocery store to the mall and to dinner.

Avalon is connected to the Big Creek Greenway with biking paths and walking trails that encourage connections to the city
