Isakson Living East Cobb's proposal of 1,124,034 square feet, even without the parking floors, is actually more than all the stores of Cumberland Mall's 1,040,000 square feet of retail, and it is just less than all the stores of Town Center Mall's 1,269,000 square feet of retail. This gives a good indication of how large the plans are.
Parking adds additional square footage to the development footprint.

In terms of the Isakson Living East Cobb parking floors, we should point out that the buildings have an additional level of parking mostly above grade. As you can see from the elevation numbers for the ring road surrounding the development and the elevation numbers on the buildings for parking and 1st floor, the buildings are actually 1 story taller than listed on the top of the building, because 4-stories over parking is a 5-story building. So these buildings are actually 3-, 4- and 5-stories tall, as in the first Isakson Living proposal.
31 Cottages on the outside of the ring road have been added since the first plan, and the total number of units proposed has been lowered to 748: 652 independent units, and 96 assisted living units.
