I’m sorry it’s been so long since my last NUR Review. I’ve been sidetracked with another project I’ve been working on. We’re catching up on news since early February so some of the news might be a little dated.
If they are going to do this, it needs to be all or none. Also, do not cut out the automobile traffic and make it into a pedestrian mall. There is not enough density to support a pedestrian mall in our area.
The city voted on a list of six projects to submit to the Regional Transit Roundtable. The six projects are the Highway 9 Historic Gateway, Big Creek River Bridge Phase 1, Big Creek to the River Multi-Use Trail Connection, North Fulton Cross County Trail Connection, Houze Road Operational Improvements and Holcomb Bridge/GA 400 Interchange Improvements. I think that all of these are necessary and the list is appropriate for our municipality. now, we won’t be getting all of them but I’m sure we’ll see one or two make their way into the regional list of projects.
Cruzeiro Esporte considering Atlanta? | Atlanta Business Chronicle
So, this isn’t our usual type of news review. However, this could be very interesting for Roswell and N.Fulton. Cruzeiro has a huge youth program and could bring major attention to N. Fulton. The facility would need about 100 acres, could have 18 fields and investment could be $20 to $40 million. This might be something nice to put in or around the Holcomb Bridge/400 interchange.
Alpharetta Wants to Make Plans for Vacant Auto Dealerships, Big Box Retail Stores | Alpharetta-Milton Patch
We need to seriously start looking into ideas like this here in Roswell. The state of empty big-box retail and car dealerships in our city is dismal.
This could be neat.. but it’s still AMTRAK.
Please... make this happen!!
Again.. please... make this happen!!
This is some very interesting info on what makes a job a job. When you hear about how many jobs a project is expected to create, economists, politicians and developers have a pretty nifty way of making things sound better than they actually are.
This is old news but if you haven’t seen it, there is some interesting commentary on the Alpharetta Met life project
It's becoming an reality. I can't wait to go for a walk on the trail.
If you haven’t seen this park, it’s a true gem thus far. Great addition to Atlanta’s park system and it’s also another piece of the BeltLine that’s starting to take shape.
This makes total sense and the city should work to make this happen for the long term success of both projects.
Another neat project that’s near the BeltLine.
More good news for City Hall East.
Please just do something here.
Alpharetta may be looking to revive its City Center project sometime soon. I'm looking forward to seeing their idea.
Atlantic Station, prepare for your spellbinding transformation into the 'anti-mall!' | Creative Loafing Atlanta
Thankfully, the new owners are planning to do something with the retail in Atlantic Station. I’d love to see a more local and regional focus.
New ownership and new life have people much more optimistic about the SoB these days. Let’s hope they get the cranes moving again.
Smyrna is starting to feel a little optimism about development.
