Dunwoody city officials plan to formally break ground April 17 on Project Renaissance, the city’s multi-use redevelopment.

The project, announced last year, will feature single-family homes, parks and a multi-use trail. John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods will develop the housing.

A groundbreaking ceremony to mark the first phase of work on the parks is scheduled for 10 a.m. April 17 at the corner of Shallowford Road and Dunwoody Park, the city announced March 29.
