Alpharetta City Center (ACC) is a 26-acre mixed-use development we know as "downtown!" In partnership with the City of Alpharetta, the property expands the existing downtown historic district by six blocks and is home to Alpharetta’s City Hall, luxury living community Amorance, and more than 30 shops and restaurants. The project’s design incorporates existing historic buildings and trees, along with replications of buildings that sat on the site in the 19th century. We asked business owners to show and tell us about their fall favorites and our photographer Aubry Canales caught up with them where they do business.
