I lived in this area (Capitol View) and am moving out. I just don't see good things happening here. Ft. Mac will go the way of Underground, Buckhead Village and Atlantic Station where the thuggies came in and ran everyone off. Buckhead Village was shut down and AS thought it could trying to alleviate the thug mentality there by charging to park if you make a purchase! I guess the thugs can go down to Ft Mac and leave AS alone when it is opened. Then the city will have to go back and "redevelop" AS after it is trashed. Such a pity. Nothing like this will ever be successful in Atlanta. Dallas has created an area in uptown called West Village where people gather to shop and dine in a peaceful environment. ATL will never see anything like that. I am so glad I am leaving! Good Luck ATL cuz you will need it.
