Lenox Square on the 4th of July, when the mall is the center of the Buckhead universe.

All the latest neighborhood and real estate news from Curbed Atlanta.

Buckhead— Have you heard? Buckhead is back! As new apartment projects sprout up all over and the cranes prepare to swing again over the giant hole that is Buckhead Atlanta, we contemplate where Buckhead's heart will lie.

Sandy Springs— Thanks largely to the BeltLine's predilection for building parks and commissioning public art, these civic treasures are enjoying a renaissance all over the metro Atlanta area. We take a look at the Playable Art Park coming to the larger Abernathy Greenway Linear Park project in Sandy Springs.

Everywhere— Thankfully, we're now within 10 days of the vote on T-SPLOST. As heated as the debate is getting between proponents and opponents of the penny tax that would fund transportation infrastructure projects all over the metro Atlanta area, one thing all can probably agree on is that it will be nice to stop being hit over the head by the respective sides' media campaigns. Pro-T-SPLOST forces got a boost this week from a clever series of advertisements from a mysterious force known as FakeMARTA...check it out if you haven't already.

Decatur— Are the announcements of upcoming openings of affordable, all-you-can-eat buffets usually viewed as a harbinger of retail resurgences to come? News that a Golden Corral is coming to the North Dekalb Mall has Decatur talking about getting some new retail offerings on Lawrenceville Highway. See what's doing.

House of the Week— We found a neo-craftsman house in Kirkwood that's pretty darn appealing at $314,900.
