All the latest neighborhood and real estate news from Curbed Atlanta.[The three draft concepts presented last night by GDOT and the development team working on the MultiModal Passenger Terminal are draft concepts, and may not resemble what will actually get built. Renderings courtesy of GDOT.]
Downtown— The public finally got its long-awaited look at initial design concepts for the MultiModal Passenger Terminal to be constructed in the area known as The Gulch. Jonathan Carnright gets up close with the transportation mega-project.
The City of Atlanta— As the entire city (if not the state) debates the upcoming T-SPLOST referendum, a new, non-irrelevant ranking list is out that may give opponents pause: Atlanta ranks 87th for labor force access to public transit. While those happy with their car commutes may not care, companies and young talent- the lifeblood of economic development and job growth- considering Atlanta as home certainly do.
Sandy Springs— In a double dose of positive news for the Atlanta commercial real estate market (and city boosters in general), the iconic King & Queen buildings in the Perimeter area found a buyer...and it's a local company.
Everywhere— In more Atlanta Ranking News, the Trust for Public Land is out with its ParkScore rankings and has the ATL in the #26 slot. While that isn't in-and-of-itself cause for celebration, our score places us in front of several other Southeast cities, including arch-nemesis Charlotte.
