Atlanta Business Chronicle | July 22, 2016

Publix Super Markets Inc. looks like the latest grocer to become a fan of the Atlanta Beltline.

MIKE PLANT'S WANTS & NEEDS: A WORLD SERIES WIN AND A TRAFFIC PLAN
BISNOW | July 22, 2016

The Atlanta Braves' head honcho readily admits the team has "lost our way a little bit." But he pled with fans to have patience for upcoming seasons, especially as the team readies its more than $400M stadium in time for Opening Day 2017.

"I say that winning the World Series is back on the game plan for us," Braves president Mike Plant told the audience at our 2016 Cumberland Expansion event this week at the Cobb Galleria. "We'll get back to the promised land pretty quick here." Mike's comments come in light of criticism from many sports commentators that team owner Liberty Media lacks the desire to pump the dollars or attention into a winning team (also check out op-eds here, here, here, and here for John Schuerholz's views on the team's performance because we're just real estate reporters, not MLB commentators). Mike didn't delve into a strategy that could see the team turn around in seasons beyond this abysmal one, but instead thanked fans for their patience.

Proposed mixed-use project would overlook Piedmont Park
Atlanta Business Chronicle | June 24, 2016

Atlanta-based Fuqua Development LLC is planning a roughly 4-acre mixed-use project overlooking Piedmont Park and the Beltline's Eastside Trail.

Early iterations of the project along Monroe Drive near 10th Street and next to Park Tavern restaurant include apartments, townhomes and a boutique hotel, according to people familiar with the discussions. It could also include a natural foods grocer and several chef-driven restaurants lining the Beltline, the sources said.

The project would rise along a high-profile site in Virginia-Highland with impressive views of the Atlanta skyline.

City officials have eyed some of the land for redevelopment for a while. A little more than a year ago, Atlanta BeltLine Inc. and the city's economic development arm Invest Atlanta issued a request for proposals for the redevelopment of 1.7 acres next to Park Tavern and sought a "best in class" mixed-use project with at least 20 percent affordable housing.

NPR - 90.1 WABE | June 24, 2016

The Atlanta BeltLine continues to attract new development. The latest project on the drawing board is a four-acre project next to Piedmont Park.

Atlanta-based Fuqua Development is looking to build a project along Monroe Drive near 10th Street. According to this week's Atlanta Business Chronicle, the development would include apartments, townhomes and a boutique hotel. Developers are also considering including a natural foods grocery store and chef-inspired restaurants next to Park Tavern restaurant overlooking Piedmont Park and the BeltLine's Eastside Trail.

City officials have eyed some of the land for redevelopment for a while.

The site owned by Invest Atlanta could now become part of Fuqua's project if the development team can acquire it.

Entertainment and Experience Guide the Future of Retail
Chain Store Age | June 14, 2016

It's no secret that mixed-use developments are incorporating an increasing amount of entertainment uses and experience-centric concepts into their projects. Gone are the days of shopping-only destinations. Developers and local municipalities are focusing more and more on complex retail-led mixed-use formats to attain a focal point for social, commercial and economic growth.

How consumers want to spend their free time has changed; shopping by itself isn't considered an experience anymore. Instead, people want to spend quality time with their family and friends, and crave new and unique food offerings, interactive retail and an ever-changing offering of activities to engage in within their shopping destinations. People are seeking out activities, not just things to buy or homogenized places to eat. To accommodate this growing desire, developers have adapted and are creating properties that are entertainment and experience driven which ultimately results in driving retail sales.

Braves project adds to entertainment lineup
Atlanta Journal Constitution | May 19, 2016

The Atlanta Braves are enlisting some star power to launch the entertainment district next to SunTrust Park.

The Braves and partner Fuqua Development on Thursday announced several new signed tenants at The Battery Atlanta, including burger concept Wahlburgers by chef Paul Wahlberg and his actor brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg.

The opening of the restaurant outside the Braves' new Cobb County ballpark is expected to be featured prominently in "Wahlburgers," the brothers' A&E reality television show about the business, Mark Wahlberg told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"We don't only want to promote the restaurant in Atlanta, but the whole development in full, the new park, the Braves and everybody else," Wahlberg said of the show.

Reynoldstown says yes to Madison Yards, Fuqua's proposed mixed-use project along the Beltline
Creative Loafing | May 10, 2016

Reynoldstown has given the nod to what should be the biggest single post-industrial redevelopment on Memorial Drive, by OKing "Madison Yards," Fuqua Development's 17.5-acre mixed-use transformation of the former Legget and Platt facility at Bill Kennedy Way along the Atlanta Beltline.

The vote wasn't even close: about three-fourths of residents at the Reynoldstown Civic Improvement League meeting on Monday night voted in favor of the zoning change the project needs to start moving dirt.

Under the developer's plan, the old Leggett and Platt facility would be replaced by a grocery store, an eight-screen theater, a fitness center, an office, other shops and restaurants, and apartments and condos for about 700 new neighbors. Several renderings showing different site configurations have popped up in the past few weeks; the images here are the most recent. (If you're wondering, the development's name is a tribute to Madison Reynolds, the 19th century landowner after whom the neighborhood is named.)
