Re: “Beltline's Eastside Trail now features innovative, smart growth-y 'no trespassing' signs

@ Joe in Atlanta: The additional concrete work is being done as part of the final punch list tht the contractor and design team have put together. They have deemed the concrete in those sections "sub-par" for some reason or another. Many of those sections are not "perfectly fine" as the concrete was clearly cracking, chipped, or any other reason the team wanted it replaced.

Personally, I'm glad the team is being so exact- we deserve a top-quality product- not something that a contractor has deemed "good enough".

BTW- the contractor bears the cost of replacing the concrete where required- not the Beltline.

Re: “Re-imagining the Medical Arts Building

I agree- Atlanta does need to look forward if it wants to be a modern city. I think it's kind of interesting- at least it's honest about what it is. All these fake brick buildings around town just makes the city look like it has no taste. Have you seen Atlantic Station!? This definitely does NOT belong over there.

Re: “Renovated Georgia Dome could feature retractable roof, would bathe modern gladiators in glorious sunlight

I completely agree with Matt. The price tag for the renovation is huge, and to expect the Falcons to pay for it is ridiculous given that they don't have control over it 365 days a year.

They can get a new stadium that they control probably for the same price. Why would they settle for a rehab?

That other proposal would keep them downtown and help the neighborhood. It's more walkable from downtown, midtown, and other in-town neighborhoods. And has as good, if not better access to the interstates.

Re: “Renovated Georgia Dome could feature retractable roof, would bathe modern gladiators in glorious sunlight

Wasn't the Falcons specific on one thing: AN OPEN AIR STADIUM? Not a retractable roof- which will break, but no roof at all? Seems to me that based on the article, over 50% of the cost of the renovation would be for a retractable roof- which they don't even want.

Someone is not listening to their tenant- which can move anytime they want.
