Evermore Community Prime for Redevelopment Success
Premiere Dermatology Surgery & Aesthetic Center Inv

As the Evermore Community Improvement District (CID) continues to plan the revitalization of the Highway 78 corridor, the reality of a median safety project, high-end business location and property redevelopment is coming to fruition.

Among early success stories, is the family owned and operated Premiere Dermatology Surgery & Aesthetic Center.  Established in Decatur for over 13 years, founders Adejia and Dr. Windell Boutte selected the Lake Lucerne area for their second facility.  Premiere Dermatology Surgery & Aesthetic Center currently employs 16 staff members comprised of Medical Doctors, Physician Assistants, Laser Technicians, Estheticians, and Administrators.  Future expansion plans include 10 additional positions in the near future.

Managing the practitioner’s aspect of Premiere Aesthetic Center is Dr. Windell Boutte, a board-certified dermatologist who has practiced in the Metro Atlanta area since 1997.  Premiere Aesthetic Center is comprised of three entities: Premiere Dermatology and Surgery, Aesthetic & Laser Boutique, and Le Pavilion Medspa.  Offering highly advanced treatments for all medical, cosmetic and surgical dermatologic needs, Premiere Aesthetic Center is the only comprehensive facility of its kind in the Evermore Community.

Adejia Boutte, Dr. Boutte’s husband, provides the business operations and property management for the practice.  According to Adejia, the decision to locate on the Highway 78 corridor was more appealing than other areas due to market demand, commercial visibility, traffic flow and overall exposure.  The Highway 78 and Evermore Community appeal prevailed in the location decision as compared to commercial areas such as Highway 29 in Lawrenceville and Highway 138 in Conyers.

With the purchase of premium commercial property and a $3.2M redevelopment investment, Adejia Boutte was at the forefront of the process and has a great deal of insight to share.  Prior to the construction of Premiere’s architecturally attractive facility, Mr. Boutte had to demolish pre-existing structures and invest in substantial infrastructure improvements.

The most significant infrastructure improvement was installation of sewer lines.  The revitalization project required a new sewer line extension under Highway 78 in order to connect to existing lines on the other side of the street.  Mr. Boutte used advanced technology known as Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) for this challenging aspect of the redevelopment. 

GPR is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. This non-destructive method detects reflected signals from subsurface structures and provides 3-dimensional renderings of objects, changes in material, voids and cracks underneath the surface.  Engineers use GPR in a variety of media, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and structures.  According to Adejia Boutte, this technology mapped out exactly where the sewer line installation was most cost effective and saved approximately $250K-$300K in infrastructure costs.  Today, a beautifully designed and highly advanced technological aesthetic center stands tall as an example of successful revitalization in Evermore. 

When considering the median safety project underway at the heart of Premiere’s newest location, Adejia is confident that the median will not compromise business.  Adejia advises, “We are a destination-business with growth that has thus far exceeded our anticipated goal.  Evermore’s plans for streetscapes is visually appealing and will greatly enhance our particular client atmosphere.”  Concerning the “Memorial Drive Mentality” adds Adejia, “Memorial Drive wasn’t even a U.S. Highway, and was never aesthetically enhanced or fostered by a community focused organization such as the Evermore CID.”

“The Premiere Dermatology Surgery & Aesthetic Center is exactly the type of redevelopment that we are excited about”, says Brett Harrell, Executive Director of the Evermore CID.  “With other Class-A professional developments planned along the entire corridor from Stone Mountain to Snellville, the future of the Highway 78 corridor is most definitely bright. We look forward to welcoming many more Evermore successes in the future”, concludes Harrell.
