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

Inman Park— The Inman Park Neighborhood Association (one of Atlanta's most particular) gave its approval to a big new mixed-use development being planned for the corner of North Highland and Elizabeth, which sounds like it's going to be pretty cool.

Downtown— The massive project to turn 'The Gulch' into the transportation hub to be known as the Multi-Modal Passenger Terminal got put on the fast track thanks to Mayor Kasim Reed's good friend President Barack Obama.

The Medias— There's no shortage of information out there for the curious T-SPLOST voter; we've read a whole lot of it and think Creative Loafing's coverage is the best out there. Who knew Atlanta's slightly-subversive alt-weekly would become the city's foremost outlet for quality journalism?

Emory— As evidenced by some of our other Cuts, it was a big week to discuss transportation infrastructure in Atlanta. The addition of a light rail line from MARTA's Lindbergh Station to the Emory area is among the most important proposed T-SPLOST projects. Learn why.
