Kudos to Daniel Fries Communities for restoring existing historic properties instead of knocking them down to build new ones! Dan Fries, a Forsyth County native, moved back to Cumming about five years ago and decided to restore the old “Corn” property in order to create opportunities for small and mid-sized businesses to own their own offices near their homes and families.
The property is now called Corporate Square and is near the historic downtown Cumming Square with great access to Highway 9, Highway 20, and GA 400. Upon completion the office complex will consist of the restored property, six addition antebellum buildings, a scenic courtyard and several preserved oak trees. The six buildings being built by Dan Fries around the historic property will boast Southern charm and character through accents such as wrought iron balconies that overlook the beautiful Georgia Mountains, white brick and traditional architecture. Some of the offices will be move in ready this fall, while the others are still under construction to leave room for customization. Office suites will start at the mid $200,000s or businesses can choose to purchase an entire two-story building starting at $499,900. The renovated structure currently houses a law-firm, a financial planner, a doctor and a real-estate appraisal firm. Most offices have beautiful scenic views of the mountains and are a relaxing and beautiful place to work. So for business owners looking to avoid the long commute to Atlanta or Georgia history buffs wanting to see a beautifully restored property, take a short drive up 400 and check out Corporate Square.
