In February 2016, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for Halcyon, a mixed-use development project in south Forsyth County in the mold of Alpharetta's Avalon.

The much-awaited project made its debut on Wednesday, Sept. 18, with eight businesses open to the public.

Once completed, the $370 million development will include 480,000 square feet of office and retail space, a trailhead for the Big Creek Greenway, about 230 homes, 460 apartments, two hotels, a parking deck, a movie theater, office space, a dog park and other retail.
