A grocery store may come to the North River Shopping Center on northern Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.

Preliminary plans filed with the city show a 36,000-square-foot new grocery store and its parking replacing a building at 8877 Roswell Road and the northern end of the shopping center. The plan does not include a particular grocery store brand. Billy Stark, a representative for the developer, declined to comment.

The project would require rezoning to allow the grocery store use and possible concurrent variances for parking and setback, according to a city filing. A preliminary community meeting is scheduled for Mon, March 21 at 7 p.m. at the Stars and Strikes entertainment facility in the shopping center at 8767 Roswell Road.
