GSU will definitely be in on this. They are pretty much buying anything and everything around the campus.
There is also 5+ apartment complexes, a condo tower, and 74 new townhomes (right next to the site)
This is what led me to say that the new site is more urban than the Ted.
I also never got out to the Chattahooche River Park, Kennesaw Mountain, Silver Comet Trail, Sope Creek, or Allatoona Lake either....Nothing to do in Cobb county at all. Gasp! You might have to drive 15 minutes to do something!!!!! Lord help us!
Look at an aerial of downtown Atlanta and tell me where there is office space near the Ted. Now look at the new site, there are three office buildings on the same road.
Yep I sure didn't get out much going to school at Georgia State, working in Decatur, and also working downtown.
I get that this is an ITPer site, but good grief people. Facts are facts. Turner Field is not woven into the fabric of downtown Atlanta at all. It is separated by two interstates. I have walked from Georgia state to Turner Field before and it is not fun.
As for the Beltline, I never said that it didn't spur any development. This is what I said "The Beltline has certainly had a great affect on the area, but you cannot say it has spurred over X amount of private investment.
Much of that development was going to happen with or without the beltline. The Beltline was not the final piece of the puzzle for the developments, but rather the submarket is a very health and desirable submarket even without the Beltline."
I merely stated that the Beltline is not the sole reason for the development in the area. Is it a contributing factor? Yes.
So please put words into my mouth, but first remove your head from your own A$$
There is also a lot of office space near the new site. You can't say the same about the Ted. If anything the new site is more urban than where the Ted is located.
ITPers are so butt hurt by the Braves move and have vowed not to go to games yet you complain about fair weather fans. Atlanta ignored the Braves and chose the Falcons. The Braves decided to move. When you have a single tenant for a stadium then you had better pay attention to what they want.
