About The Historic Senoia Project
The Historic Senoia Project (www.historicsenoia.com) is a downtown redevelopment initiative within the Historic District of the City of Senoia, Georgia, undertaken by the principals of Raleigh Studios Atlanta (formerly Riverwood Studios). It is located just south of Atlanta. “25 miles and 100 years from Atlanta” is the official mantra by residents and revivalists. The Historic Senoia Project is an in-town urban living, dining, and cultural experience that includes shopping, attractions and ambience. Many of the vacant parcels of land in Senoia’s Historic District have been acquired for the purpose of constructing period infill development, designed to blend seamlessly with the town’s existing architecture set between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s.
Senoia’s charm has been the backdrop for more than 24 film and television productions over the last 20 years, including “Fried Green Tomatoes”, “The War,” and even the recent Lifetime Television series hit “Drop Dead Diva”. Riverwood Studios, whose roots go back 3 generations in Hollywood, has ensured that planning and design for the historic infill project will make Senoia even more conducive to serving up its brand of Southern charm for future projects as well.
The scope of Senoia’s revitalization includes retail/commercial, office/professional, and in-town residential elements, master planned to offer modern amenities and technology within the context of a historic sense of place.
