Northside can handle more traffic, but Howell Mill needed widening years ago.

In the meantime there's apparently noone at city hall with the foresight to rid the city's core of this kind of development.

So your options are 1) put a moratorium on development in the area for that period of time, depriving the city of tax revenue needed to improve infrastructure, or 2) build a time machine, go back to the middle of a recession, and convince the city to build transit infrastructure then and there based on your future knowledge of how development would play out.

Unfortunately the BeltLine overlay district just falls outside of the property so the "quality of life" zoning requirements for streetscapes and building setbacks don't apply here. (ex surface parking along 17th street in lieu of buildings fronting 17th properly, drive-through outparcels can face public streets, etc) Fuqua can get away with a lot more crap here than Glenwood Park's Kroger.

FWIW, I find it complete BS that the area was left out of the BeltLine overlay district likely due to the area's industrial past and needing some brownfield remediation. It's crap developments like this in a neighborhood that make me really question Atlanta's commitment to its citizens rather than corporations.

Sorry about the size. Even the BL master plan left it out. Ridiculous:

Fuqua truly, deeply, meaningfully-- does not care.

Awesome, thank you. Transportation Plan as well, for other's reference

Edit: Notables- Infill station at 19th street, North Ave complete street, Midtown circulator, 17th street redesign (HUGE improvement, rendering p.35 in the pdf). 10th St bridge redesign/traffic calming iin addition to capped park in the 3.0 Blueprint (p. 18), two way lane conversions, street extensions, 15th st brdige/HOV, and by and far mainly pedestrian and bike enhancements to the area. Also glad to see the stitch included in the 3.0 Blueprint.

And a good manual for what Midtown Alliance is trying to promote for the neighborhood: http://www.midtownatl.com/_files/doc...guidelines.pdf

project. Upon a motion made by Mr. Hodge, which was seconded by Mr. Broadbent, the
Authority unanimously approved the letter of inducement for Kroger.

I'm really surprised Kroger would build there considering the proximity to the Howell Mill Kroger and Publix in Atlantic Station, which does not do well in sales.

Apogee Buckhead expected to break ground within 45-60 days once the finalization of financing is completed.

I absolutely love this. I've made the comment that Midtown is still not "there" yet but I'm delighted that the Midtown Alliance is continuing to plan improvements in all aspects the district. Good stuff.

"The company noted that it still has dozens of stores in the pipeline and that it will continue to grow, but that it will be more careful about signing new leases."

The 14th Street location is already under construction and I'm sure they wouldn't have started without a signed lease.

Phase 2 of State Farm looks to be ramping up construction. Blue fencing was installed around the lot and heavy equipment is on site already digging.
