Emory Point is a mixed-use development on Clifton Road in Druid Hills, unincorporated DeKalb County, Georgia, adjacent to Atlanta. It is across Clifton Road from the Centers for Disease Control and surrounded on three sides by the campus of Emory University, backing up to Peachtree Creek's South Fork. The complex contains 80,000 square feet (7,400 m2) of retail space and 443 apartments. Currently Phase I is open of multiple phases, thus additional residential and retail space is to be added. The total cost is variously quoted as USD 60 million[1] to USD 250 million.[2] It is as of its opening in Fall 2012, the first new retail project built in the trade area in 20 years, the largest private development start inside the Perimeter in more than three years and the first partnership between Cousins Properties (75%) and Gables Residential (25%), two Atlanta-based development companies.[2][3]

Tenants include CVS Pharmacy, JoS. A. Bank Clothiers, and Ann Taylor Loft, Bonefish Grill, Fresh to Order, Which Wich? as well as other chain and independent stores and restaurants. As of December 2012, twenty-one shops and restaurants were either open or lined up to open by February 2013.

The complex is located on "The Cliff" Emory shuttle lines.

The project was originally planned in 2006 as a 315,000 square feet (29,300 m2) condominium complex only.[1] It was stopped in 2008 as the Great Recession deepened[4] but was finally completed in 2012.[5]

The site has the potential for a total of nine buildings. Three are completed and four are (as of December 2012) being designed.[1] Phase II is to add an additional 240 apartment units and 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2) of retail.[6]
