Toco Hills is a well-known, in-town neighborhood located northwest of downtown Atlanta. The immediate area is home to several large employers, including Emory University and Hospital, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Within walking distance from Kenco Lavista, the Toco Hills Shopping Center includes over 300,000 SF of retail. The center is anchored by Publix, Kroger, Office Depot and Pikes Nurseries.

Did you know? The Toco Hills Shopping Center was originally developed by Clyde Shepherd Jr. in 1956. Legend has it that Mr. Shepard picked up the phrase “Toco,” which translates to “have better luck than you think you’ll have,” from a Brazilian Indian while working overseas. Prior to development, the land had a hill on it. (story credit)
