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.)

Expert believes development won't add major traffic to Scott Boulevard
Atlanta Journal Constitution | May 2, 2016

When finished, Fuqua Development's mixed-use project at Scott Boulevard and North Decatur Road, just outside Decatur, will include about 960 apartments. During Fuqua's recent presentation before the Decatur Heights Neighborhood Association, many expressed concern over the anticipated traffic increase.

Some even got irritated when Davis Fox, Policy and Projects Manager for DeKalb Commissioner Kathie Gannon, countered that the additional automobiles caused by the new units would be "a drop in the bucket."

But Fox explained that with two proposed transit stops at nearby Suburban Plaza and DeKalb Medical - neither station has yet received funding - he doesn't believe the development will add significantly to the 60,000 cars traversing Scott daily.

These 26 projects will radically transform Memorial Drive
Atlanta Magazine | March 28, 2016

Since early 2014, the two-mile stretch of Memorial Drive east of the Downtown Connector has become the site of one of Atlanta's biggest development booms. Given its proximity to both downtown and the Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail, an assortment of builders plans to spend north of $600 million-more than double the expected redevelopment costs for Turner Field-on more than two dozen projects along the former industrial corridor.

"We're going to see investment in this area for the foreseeable future," says Greg Giuffrida, Central Atlanta Progress's point person for Memorial Drive planning and outreach.

With more than 1,300 apartments and condos under development, Paces Properties CEO David Cochran envisions the strip becoming "the next Inman Park." But it's more than housing: Proposals include everything from freestanding restaurants (Grindhouse Killer Burgers) to basic services like dry cleaning and daycare (Larkin on Memorial) to the state's mammoth new judicial complex. And, who knows, maybe that momentum will help push pie-in-the-sky projects into motion, such as a proposal to "cap" the Connector with a grassy park.

What's gotten into Memorial Drive? (SLIDESHOW)
Atlanta Business Chronicle | January 15, 2016

An aging industrial corridor nestled among historic neighborhoods is rapidly evolving into a walkable, mixed-use district that could bridge Atlanta's eastside to downtown.
