Forsyth's Halcyon project lands three boutiques

Three boutiques have signed on for Halcyon, a $370 million mixed-use village rising at Ga. 400 and McFarland Road in Forsyth County.

Here is more about each store:

• Lavender, which originally opened in 2004 and is currently in the Collection at Forsyth, is relocating and expanding in Halcyon. The boutique carries women’s clothing and accessories for all ages.

“As someone who has roots in Forsyth County, I’m looking forward to being a part of a community like Halcyon that will bring so many positive things to the area,” said Peony Lin, Lavender’s founder and owner. 

• Canoe, a lifestyle brand and boutique, is opening its second location in Halcyon. The store that has its first location in Blue Ridge offers jewelry, bags and accessories. Lynn Kemp started Canoe.

• And, a new retail concept called Nina + Leigh will join Halcyon. It will be a clothing boutique for women in their late teens to thirties and will carry clothing, jewelry and various accessories. Candice Sinisgalli is opening the store.

The boutiques will join Allure Nail Bar, which will occupy 3,500 square feet, and Uni K Wax, which will have a nearly 1,200-square-foot space.

Atlanta Business Chronicle also reported this week that Cherry Street Brewing will open a new brewpub and beer garden at the project.

The project has landed other coveted food tenants, including new locations of Gu’s Dumplings and Alpharetta restaurant Butcher & Brew. 

Halcyon is now under construction and is expected to open in 2018.

The 135-acre project is from Atlanta-based RocaPoint Partners and New York-based The Georgetown Co. It will include more than 480,000 square feet of office and retail space, a movie theater, two hotels and 690 residential units.

JLL Retail is handling the retail leasing.
