Site plan for the Morningside development.

Fuqua Development has demolished the old Rock Springs shopping center and will soon knock down the old Taco Cabana restaurant  (and more recently Mama’s) at the corner of Piedmont and Cheshire Bridge roads for a new mixed use development called Morningside. The 6-acre property will have 300 apartments and 44,000 square feet of retail space including anchor tenant Sprouts Farmers Market.

Construction fencing is now up around the site. That’s the old Taco Cabana/Mama’s building.
