Feast your eyes on the retail center proposed near Glenwood Park, Atlanta Beltline

Posted By on Thu, Sep 20, 2012 at 10:39 AM

When Jeff Fuqua told us his proposed shopping center near Glenwood Park would look similar to the Edgewood Retail District, he wasn't kidding. The veteran developer, who wants to build nearly 200,000 total square feet of retail on a former concrete facility near the greenie mixed-use project and along the Atlanta Beltline, passed along renderings of the project last night.

We're waiting to hear where the 155,00-square foot anchor tenant, which some have speculated might become a Walmart, might fit in among the sketches. Fuqua said yesterday he's holding talks with many retailers for the large space, which could even be broken up among several tenants, and hopes to break ground next spring.

Let the critiques commence!
