Get ready for more car- oriented, cul de sacs, strip malls and low density development.
Give cep a break.
This project has a just-disclosed shovel-ready "green" element with funding from the Federal Government.
All of the homeless in downtown will be gathered nightly onto the greenspace and their body heat will be recovered to heat the GSU campus. City Council meetings, InvestAtlanta meetings, and APS Board meetings will also be held there and the waste heat from the politician's hot air will also be recovered.
If the expected waste heat is recovered, GSU may be able to heat all of downtown.
Yeah, they should have decent places to live, just not in my neighborhood!!! As the sayin goes, "You can take a negro outta the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto outta them!" Maybe you're one of those bleeding hearts ready to forgive poor blacks for everything because you pity them but you don't speak for sensible people who are already once burned, twice shy.
Imagine that, a developer running regional planning. Does Jeff Fuqua know about this?
Great picture and caption.
cep, i hope you become homeless.
Kasim sure doesn't seem to be shy about throwing his weight behind highly flawed allies. While his loyalty might be admirable, his choices of "friends" are -- too often -- terrible.
It's encouraging to see so many improvements being made in Downtown right now, from the bocce court in Woodruff Park, free wifi from the W Hotel in the area, GSU's expansion, the streetcar running starting next year and Atlanta's new FTA grant designee status to make extending it in the near future easier. It's only a matter of time until growth in Midtown, the Old Fourth Ward, etc. spills into Downtown. I look forward to seeing what this city will be like in 5-10 years.
I'm still dumbfounded by the comments some people make around here. Constructive criticism is one thing, but making troll-like comments is a waste of everyone's time, including yours. Maybe it's time some of you find a new hobby.
I honestly can't wait for this to happen. I am so friggin' tired of the GSU-haters bashing on my university in every Atlanta-based online forum.
Does it matter? They wont push for MARTA to be expanded.
That is going to be one fancy homeless camp.
I'll be done with my degree before this happens, but Kell Hall wouldn't/won't be missed by me - that building is a shithole.
Yay, pot-related arrests. Good use of my tax money. Lotta lives saved.
Was it just a lucky traffic stop...or was it a lucky tip?
"A former federal agent in the northeastern United States who received such tips from SOD described the process. "You'd be told only, ‘Be at a certain truck stop at a certain time and look for a certain vehicle.' And so we'd alert the state police to find an excuse to stop that vehicle, and then have a drug dog search it," the agent said.
A dozen current or former federal agents interviewed by Reuters confirmed they had used parallel construction during their careers. Most defended the practice; some said they understood why those outside law enforcement might be concerned.
"It's just like laundering money - you work it backwards to make it clean," said Finn Selander, a DEA agent from 1991 to 2008 and now a member of a group called Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, which advocates legalizing and regulating narcotics."
If you believe the official narrative that he was stopped due to "having illegally tinted windows" then you must be smoking some dank.
God forbid we have experts on things, huh?
Scariest three words in the English language: "Harvard economics professor."
Damnit - the crappy weed I was referring to was in the linked story... the buds above look fairly decent...
"kind of stupid to drive a car loaded with drugs, cash and a gun when your windows are illegally tinted."
If people didn't learn by example after Nate Newton, why would they now?
knockoff LV bags made from pleather, apparently.
kind of stupid to drive a car loaded with drugs, cash and a gun when your windows are illegally tinted.
as an old friend of mine used to say - break one law at a time...
Is it too much to ask that businesses pay their employees enough not to starve? Given the often terrible working conditions and customers fast food employees must deal with, $15 seems very fair. It's just enough to live on.
