Here are today’s top three stories at East Cobb:

  1. North American Properties has released new details of its plans to revamp the East Cobb Avenue shopping center on Roswell Road. The main feature is the construction of two new “jewel box” store structures on either side of the semi-circular development. Renderings also show that the Bravura bridal shop would be torn down and replaced with a new public plaza with a seating area and stage. (MDJOnline.com)
  2. Opponents of Cobb’s failed city-state efforts this week rejected legal challenges to form new cities in East Cobb, Lost Mountain and Vinings. The lawsuits, filed by attorney Allen Lightcap on behalf of residents of the three regions, said the “city lite” formation of the three pushes was an unconstitutional violation of Georgia’s principle of self-government. Cobb Superior Court Chief Justice Robert Leonard declined to comment on the arguments before the referendums, saying that if the referendums failed, the cases would be moot. (Yahoo News)
  3. Toll Brothers, Inc.a luxury home builder, announced the grand opening of its model home at Edgewood East, a new luxury home community in East Cobb. The new model home is a blend of luxury and contemporary design with innovative architecture and stunning interior modeling. “The recently opened Edgewood East model home is an inspiration to our buyers who are looking for a spacious retreat to call home in the heart of East Cobb,” said Eric White, President of Toll Brothers Atlanta Division.

Are you a resident of East Cobb? looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?

Bloomberg recently asked experts where they would invest $100,000 right now, and many of them got the same answer: fine art.

Think you can’t afford a Picasso? Well, in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securing of works of art. A company called Masterpieces.io has built the largest platform for buying and selling art titles. In the past, you could only buy stocks from companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.

This means that you can invest in stocks of million dollar works of art. And in these uncertain times, it turns out fine art can be a wise investment. Here’s why:

  • Low correlation with equities according to Citi
  • Contemporary art historically yields 23.2% when inflation is > 3%
  • Contemporary art prices outperformed the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
