Glenwood Place Waffle House First in Line of Chains
Curbed Atlanta | December 30, 2015

Good news everyone! Waffle House is coming to Glenwood Place! Depending on your outlook Jeff Fuqua and company either did his first favor for the southeast side of Atlanta, or this is just one more instance in a series of copy and paste developments. It's a tough emotional conflict since, on one hand, everyone wants to shed the chains of corporate servitude, and, on the other hand, everyone loves waffles.

What Now Atlanta reported the 24 hour breakfast chain filed plans with the city last week. Besides the anchor tenant, a SuperDuperMegaSized Kroger, Waffle House is the first confirmed in a series of rumored tenants at the in-progress development at the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Bill Kennedy Way. Those rumors also included a Chic-fil-a, Chipolte and Starbucks. One more big name and suspicions might be raised of Fuqua building a mixed-use pentagram on top of a corporate hellmouth.

Fuqua Adds Ford Dealership to North Decatur Project
Curbed Atlanta | December 23, 2015

Like a black hole pulling in every nearby object, Fuqua Development continues to consume more property for building upon. This time, the company's oft-maligned but extremely proactive leader, Jeff Fuqua, is adding another stage to the boring-as-a-council-meeting Decatur Crossing mixed-use project on Scott Boulevard. The project's third phase will take over the abandoned Ford dealership on Scott Boulevard, adding about 10 acres to the existing 20-acre site.

The plan from Fuqua faced some early community backlash because it would take over the site of Scott Boulevard Baptist Church and add to neighborhood congestion, but those qualms have been largely alleviated. When the first two phases are complete, Decatur Crossing will feature 80,000 square feet of retail including a Sprouts Farmers Market, 15,000 square feet of office space, at least 700 apartments and a small park that would be open to the public, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Fuqua to Take Beltline Building into His Own Hands
Curbed Atlanta | December 21, 2015

Folks are getting a little antsy waiting for the Beltline's eastern flank to gear up with new construction. Apparently, when you have buckets of money to toss at stunted multi-use trails, you can take matters into your own hands. At least that seems to be the case as Fuqua Development plans to build a short length of the Atlanta Beltline trail near its Glenwood Place project.

A couple of years ago, Fuqua kicked up a ton of ill-will when it was rumored Wal-Mart would be the anchor tenant. Ground broke on Glenwood Place, which sits at the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Bill Kennedy Way, back in April. Since then, the company has been in the process of finishing up its anchor retail space, which will officially be filled by a Kroger.
